The Diamond Hornets traveled to Greenwood to take on the Bulldogs in a double-header last Friday. Both games were easily handled by Bryant, winning the first 10-0 after a two-hit shut-out by senior Evan Lee. Greenwood was not able to pick up their bats much in the second affair, only scoring two in a Bryant 7-2 victory. The Diamond Hornets were not as fortunate in their bout against Conway, as seven errors led to four unearned runs in their 4-0 loss on Tuesday. After this week’s play, the Diamond Hornets are 13-2 on the season so far and will face Alma in a double-header at home tonight.



Entering the week with a three-game losing streak, the Lady Hornets faced off with defending state-champions North Little Rock at home last Friday. An explosive 9 run third inning was just enough for Bryant as they edged the Lady Charging Wildcats 10-8 to break their losing streak. The next day, the Lady Hornets played Lake Hamilton in a makeup match, and had no problem with the Lady Wolves, winning handily, 13-3. In their final game of the week, Bryant visited Conway and claimed their first conference victory in a 10-5 scoreline. The Lady Hornets are now 10-5 on the season and are on a three-game winning streak. Their next contest will be tonight at home in a double-header versus Alma.
