The Sideline: Mayflower tourney moved; Conway track and Hendrix lacrosse

Mayflower tournament moved to Benton

The 5-3A baseball and softball tournaments, originally scheduled to begin Friday at Mayflower, has been shifted to Benton Harmony Grove because of the effects from Sunday’s tornado.

The tournament will be Friday-Monday, with Mayflower as the top seed as the district champion.

“With the tornado damage and all the issues it has presented, we felt it best to allow someone else to host, and Benton Harmony Grove stepped up to the plate on short notice,” said Brent Stallings, Mayflower athletic director.

Mayflower’s softball team will play Friday and the baseball team Saturday at times to be determined.

7A/6A track meet begins Friday

Conway seniors Malik Clemons, Bryan Cox, Chance Garrett, Colin Weatherly, Bryan Wilson, Marcus Winningham, Ke’Air Powell and Patrick Randall will compete for the Wampus Cats in their final conference track meet.

The 7A/6A Central meet will be Friday in Cabot.

Clemons has the second-best time in the 400 meters this season at 50.86. Kennedy King, a junior, holds the second best conference high jump at 6-3. Sophomore Toler Freyaldenhoven leads a group of distance runners who have the second best conference time in the two-mile relay at 8:25.7.
