Senior Carson Johnson has been one of Springdale’s leaders in the Bulldogs’ best season since the school district split in 2006.

The leadoff-hitting infielder is batting .422 with 16 stolen bases, 13 RBIs and a gaudy .677 on-base percentage. He is a four-year starter, three-year leadoff hitter and committed to Warner, Okla.-based Connors State in November.

Here’s a Q&A with Johnson. Read a feature on him in Thursday’s Northwest Arkansas-Democrat Gazette.

Have you always worn No. 6?

For two years I’ve worn 6. I used to wear 24.

Why’d you switch?

I wanted 24 but a senior had it and it … Continue Reading ››

Mason Mitchell shook off a few early jitters and finished strong to lead Rogers High to a 4-1 win over Mountain Home on Saturday in the Best Sports Classic at Veterans Park.
The junior right-hander, making his first varsity start, tossed a complete game four-hitters and allowed just two base runners over the final three innings. He allowed one unearned run, struck out five and walked three.
Rogers coach Matt Melson said Mitchell did the job by changing speeds and keeping the Bombers off-balance.
"His change-up was really effective," Melson said. "His arm speed on that was very good. That's what I … Continue Reading ››
