Tweets of the Week: W2.17

With national signing day just around the corner on Feb. 1, we've got several exciting recruiting-related tweets to get to, so we're diving right into the other top tweets from the past week.

Besides, no one really reads all the usual jibber jabber blah blah blah that typically leads this thing off.

This week's ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week comes from Prairie Grove softball player Madison Brockman.

It's simple, but simply perfection. Well, other than the minor grammatical hiccup. (Madison, because your thief is unknown, it should be "whomever.")

But who (or is it whom?? smh) friggin' cares. This is Twitter, not English 101 … Continue Reading ››

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:

Farmington this week

Both the Cardinals and Lady Cardinals picked up a pair of wins last week, winning games at Greenwood and at home against Clarksville. The Farmington boys sit at 13-3 overall and 2-0 in 5A/6A district play. Senior guard Matt Wilson went for a school record 50 points in the win against Clarksville, just over a week after scoring 49 in a win against Siloam Springs. Wilson will need another big effort this week as Farmington visits Alma on Tuesday, another top contender in the 5A/6A District 1. The Cardinals then close out the week on Friday at Russellville. The Lady Cardinals also are … Continue Reading ››

Fayetteville this week

Purple'Dogs Fayetteville starts 7A-West play 1-2 with the first three conference games all played in a span of five days. A win at Rogers High sandwiched between home losses to Bentonville West and Bentonville High is how the Purple'Dogs (6-9, 1-2 7A-West) head into this week's schedule and an important matchup sits up next. Fayetteville hosts Rogers Heritage on Tuesday. Both teams are 1-2 in league play, while many so-called experts might have expected these two to finish close to the top of the conference race. And while that could still happen, the winner of Tuesday's game might have the early leg … Continue Reading ››

3A/4A This Week 1.16.17

Rogers High This Week

Rogers will play host to Van Buren in what looks to be a big game on the girls' side, after the Lady Mounties fell to league leader Fayetteville on Friday.

The Lady Mounties (10-6, 2-1 7A-West) have another big game against co-leader Van Buren, then travel to Bentonville, which is currently 1-2, on Friday.

The Mounties (7-9, 0-3) will be looking to snap a four-game losing streak against Van Buren.

The Mountie wrestlers will participate in a tournament in Berryville on Saturday, but also take on Greenwood and Russellville on Tuesday in a double dual at Rogers Heritage.

Rogers Heritage This Week

The War Eagles basketball team will try to bounce back from Friday's 56-43 loss at Van Buren, but they will have to do it on the road as Heritage faces Fayetteville in Bulldog Arena on Tuesday.

Heritage (9-7, 1-2 7A-West) doesn't have a league win away from War Eagle Arena yet this season. Its lone 7A-West win came Tuesday at home against crosstown rival Rogers High. Fayetteville is also 1-2 in the league, after falling to Bentonville 56-44 on Saturday at home in a make-up game.

The Lady War Eagles (6-10, 0-3) will be looking for their first league win period. … Continue Reading ››

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:

Har-Ber is the hottest team in the 7A-West at the moment, and Tylor Perry may very … Continue Reading ››
