Heather Hunsucker and Jeremy Price's young teams hit bumps in the road last week in 7A-West play.

ARPreps Spotlight: Springdale Har-Ber’s Karrington Whaley

SPRINGDALE – Springdale Har-Ber senior forward Karrington Whaley, a Henderson State University commit, is trying to will the Lady Wildcats toward their first 7A-West conference win.

She scored 16 points in Har-Ber's league opener, and coach Jaime Green will need more performances like that for her club to make a run at the state tournament.

Here is the ARPreps Spotlight on Whaley:

Springdale Har-Ber – Week of Jan. 16

Scott Bowlin's Wildcats are rolling. Har-Ber, 3-0 in the 7A-West, protected its homefloor against rival Springdale High and Bentonville High last week.

His club then traveled to central Arkansas and came back with an overtime win over Little Rock Christian. Har-Ber's winning streak has now reached seven games as week three of conference play begins.

First-year coach Jaime Green's Lady Wildcats are still in search of their first league win after another tough home loss Friday to Bentonville.

Here is what's going on this week at Springdale Har-Ber:

Springdale High – Week of Jan. 16

Springdale High capped the second week of 7A-West pay with a pair of big road wins at Bentonville West Friday.

Heather Hunsucker's Lady Red'Dogs continue to play well early on, and thanks large in part to Justin Bilyeu and Carl Fitch, the Red'Dogs stole a win on the road against the Wolverines.

Bilyeu scored 10 points in the fourth quarter Friday and knocked down a turn-around jumper with 3 seconds left to give Springdale a 39-38 win.

Marquesha Davis, again, tallied a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds in a runaway win over West. Through three games, the sophomore is averaging 19.6 … Continue Reading ››
