Bentonville High is 6-1 in 7A-West play and it's largely due to the play of Jordan Hemphill.

Hemphill scored 10 of his game-high 24 points in the fourth quarter of a 52-44 win against Rogers Heritage last Tuesday. He also had five steals, five rebounds and two assists. He then put up 19 … Continue Reading ››

Also known as "National Signing Day," Wednesday marks the beginning of the week-long national signing period. That's crowded Twitter timelines more than usual with visits, offers and pledges for the past few weeks.
We'll get to all of those in a bit.
But first, the ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week comes from Prairie Grove junior softball player Ali Edgar. She's been a regular with her witty tweets, but this one was extra funny — especially because she's tweeting about a teacher named "Mileham." That may be Tigers baseball coach Chris Mileham, which makes the exchange even more comical:
The final night of the first month of conference play went as expected at Springdale Har-Ber Friday.
Scott Bowlin's Wildcats cruised to a 52-38 win against Rogers Heritage, and Jaime Green's club got a big night from Dachelle Terry and Juliza and Juella Brown in a mercy-rule win.
Terry scored a game-high 10 points against the Lady War Eagles, and helped Har-Ber jump out to a 31-5 first-half lead. The Brown sisters combined for 14 points while Karrington Whaley and Khanni Shannon each added eight points.
Zane King played arguably his best game of his senior season Friday, scoring a game-high 16 points … Continue Reading ››
After stumbling through the middle of the first half of conference play, Springdale High closed round one on a positive note Friday night.
Jeremy Price's Red'Dogs handed Rogers High a 19-point loss on the road, and the Lady Red'Dogs edged a solid Lady Mounties club. Edwin Aquino led Springdale's boys with 14 points, his second consecutive league game in double figures after no-such games in his first five. Carl Fitch added 12 in the win.
Lady Red'Dogs sophomore Marquesha Davis scored a team-high 10 points in Friday's win. But balance was the bigger story as seven players scored 6-plus points, counteracting Elise … Continue Reading ››
The War Eagles and Lady War Eagles basketball team have Tuesday off because of a lack of bad weather this winter.
The 7A-West Conference built in an extra date to allow for a make-up date if necessary, but it has not yet been needed. The Heritage boys (11-9, 3-4 7A-West) sit in a three-way tie for fourth with Springdale and Bentonville West as the second round of league play begins Friday.
Heritage will host Springdale High on Friday. The Red Bulldogs knocked off the War Eagles to begin conference play.
The Rogers Lady Mounties will have a week to bounce back from Friday's tough loss to Springdale High, but another big game looms.
The Lady Mounties (12-8, 4-3 7A-West Conference) begin the second round of league play in a three-way tie for third with Springdale and Bentonville. Rogers travels to Springdale Har-Ber on Friday to begin the second round. The Lady Mounties won a tight game against Har-Ber at King Arena earlier this season.
The Mounties (7-13, 0-7) have lost eight straight and sit last in the 7A-West standings.
The Rogers wrestlers finish the regular season on Tuesday with a dual against Webb … Continue Reading ››
