Observations from Springdale’s benefit games

SPRINGDALE — This was always supposed to be Heather Hunsucker’s best Springdale team yet.

The core group of sophomores who helped elevate the program to respectability two years ago are now seniors, giving Springdale one of the most experienced teams in 7A.

Those four seniors — Kierra Lang, Desiree Mack, Chasidee Owens and Ryann Goodsell — have the talent to make Springdale competitive. But two other seniors, transfers Anna Gadison and Maya Hood, could be what takes the Lady Bulldogs to another level and allows them to compete at a higher level come March and state tournament time.

Fayetteville 67, West Memphis 36 – Rapid Report

Fayetteville is not the team to get into a scoring contest with.

West Memphis found this out the hard way Friday, trying to shoot it out at Harmon Stadium with the Bulldogs before finally bowing out, 67-36, in the first round of the Class 7A playoffs. The Blue Devils did their part on offense, racking up over 300 yards of a balanced attack to hit Fayetteville with several quality scoring drives.

But the Bulldogs' offense was simply too much to handle. Quarterback Taylor Powell tied a school record with 7 TD passes, and added another rushing TD. Garland Allison had 117 receiving … Continue Reading ››

Mounties sign to play baseball

ROGERS — At the end of his junior season, Rogers High pitcher Harrison Heffley wasn’t sure if he wanted to play to continue his baseball career after high school.

But the Mounties coaches urged Heffley to go to a camp this past summer at Arkansas. After an impressive effort, Heffley was offered a scholarship, and he made it official Friday when he signed a national letter of intent to play baseball for the Razorbacks.

Teammate Sage White also signed to play college baseball Friday when the Mounties outfielder inked his national letter of intent with Harding University.

Conway 42, Springdale 7

CONWAY — Springdale High has faced some of the state’s best quarterbacks this year in 7A-West action.
