Prep Wrestling Notebook – No. 5

Springdale High The Red Bulldogs are coming off a tough weekend in which they won just one of six duals against tough competition in the Owasso (Okla.) Ram Duals, but coach Josh Rivers is encouraged.

But they showed back up with eagerness like the beginning of the … Continue Reading ››

West’s Henry named Athlete of the Week

Bentonville West's A-Shaundi Henry is the first player to earn ARPreps.com Athlete of the Week honors despite not hitting a field goal.

The junior guard sank 15 of 16 free throws — including 12 of 12 in the fourth quarter — to lead the Lady Wolverines to the program's first 7A-West conference victory — a 60-53 win over Rogers Heritage on Friday.

Tweets of the Week 1.24.17

We're taking a little different slant on the ARPreps.com Tweets of the Week this time around.

Instead of singling out a "Tweet of the Week," we're giving the award for "Tweets of the Week" to Fayetteville quarterback Taylor Powell, who thankfully shared his wild roller coaster ride of a week with the rest of the world via Twitter.

Powell's week began with something expected by many — and ended with something unexpected.

It started with Powell winning the Landers Award, which annually is given to the top high school player in the state. Based on Powell's accomplishments (two-time state champ and 7A record … Continue Reading ››
