Following an undefeated run through the 2A-3 conference this season, the Palestine-Wheatley Lady Patriots, just like Forrest Gump, decided to just keep on running.
Palestine-Wheatley grabbed the lead late in the 6AA-3 district softball tournament championship game Saturday at Carlisle on the way to a 6-1 victory over McCrory and the district title.
It came down to the wire for the Palestine-Wheatley Patriots on Saturday.
After being rained out each night last week, the Palestine Youth Program will try to get back on track tonight.
Two days after competing in the 2A Region 3 junior high district track meet held Monday at Beebe, the Palestine-Wheatley teams were right back on the same track Wednesday, this time to compete in the 2A Region 3 senior high track meet.
Oh, oh, oh it’s magic. At least it is for Forrest City High School senior Tykeia Edwards.
The weather this week has not been kind to the Forrest City Mustangs baseball team, which is trying to wrap up its regular season schedule with a final conference doubleheader against Blytheville.
Weather has once again disrupted the 6AA-3 district baseball and softball tournaments being played at Des Arc by washing away today’s scheduled semifinal games, according to Des Arc athletic director Blake Widener.
The Forrest City Lady Mustangs are gathering steam as they continue to prepare for the 5A-East Conference Meet Thursday at Batesville.
