SPRINGDALE HAR-BER RECAP

Springdale had one goal before playing consecutive road games at Rogers Heritage and Rogers High. “We needed to get to .500 to start the second half,” Har-Ber coach Sandy Wright said. Mission accomplished. Har-Ber (14-8, 4-4) is now even in the 7A-West Conference following consecutive wins over Heritage and Rogers. Jacie Higgins scored eight of her 12 points in the fourth quarter Friday to lead Har-Ber to a 52-41 victory over the Lady Mounties. Higgins made the clutch plays after sitting out most of the third quarter because of foul trouble. The consecutive wins set up nicely for Har-Ber, which will play home games … Continue Reading ››
