They traveled nearly 600 miles round trip to Pocahontas and will trek nearly 700 miles for the round trip to Hamburg.

“It’s about 15 minutes farther, so we’ll leave at 7:45 Friday morning, which about 15 minutes earlier (than last week),” said Gravette coach Bill Harrelson. “We’ll stop at (Arkansas-Monticello) instead of Harding to do (a walk-through). And we’ll get home about 4:30 (a.m.), which is about 15 minutes later than … Continue Reading ››

We’re not going to say the season was disaster, but in our minds, 5-5 is unacceptable.” Atkins (7-2-1) finished 6-1 to finish second in … Continue Reading ››

week-3-statistics Greenland Pirates Greenland suffered its first defeat, losing by a touchdown (19-12) at Gentry. The Pirates (2-1) allied for 12 points in the fourth quarter, but it was too little, too late after the Pioneers built a 19-0 lead.

They then lost tailback Michael McAdoo to an injury, and the senior is not expected to play this week against Clinton at home. “We don't have much … Continue Reading ››
