The Forrest City Lady Mustangs are gathering steam as they continue to prepare for the 5A-East Conference Meet Thursday at Batesville.

Runs were hard to come by Tuesday for the Palestine-Wheatley Patriots.
The complete results from the 6AA-3 district track meet held Monday at Beebe are not available yet, but one thing first-year Palestine-Wheatley junior girls track coach Bonnie Halbert knows for sure is that her Junior Lady Patriots are the district champions.
It’s going to be a busy week for the Palestine-Wheatley junior high track teams. Hopefully, it will be a productive week as well.
