Practice begins this week for fall high school sports including football, golf, cross country, and volleyball. Today we’ll take a look at the Green Forest Lady Tiger volleyball program. Last year the Lady Tigers faced Bergman in the first round of the 1-3A district tournament after they had won two previous matches earlier in the season, but the Lady Panthers defeated Green Forest and eliminated them from post season play and finished with a 9-15 overall record and went 6-6 in conference play. The Lady Tigers last made the volleyball post season in 2016 when they hosted the district tournament and took third place and lost a five set match to Mansfield in the first round of the 3A state tournament. This year’s team will start a new era under Green Forest head volleyball coach Christie Popejoy. Popejoy comes from a very successful Valley Springs program and hopes to bring that winning tradition to her new home. Green Forest will play a triple A benefit game Thursday August 22nd at Flippin, and will host Yellville-Summit Tuesday August 27th for the season opener. New Coach Christie Popejoy will face her old team September 3rd when Green Forest will host Valley Springs. Good luck to the Green Forest Lady Tiger volleyball team on the 2019 volleyball season.
Practice for fall high school sports takes place this week for football, cross country, golf, and volleyball. Today KTHS will take a quick look at the upcoming Volleyball season for Berryville. The Berryville Lady Bobcat volleyball team has established a tradition of making post season tournaments and last year Berryville Coach Kristin Whetham expected similar results but a new conference alignment made the season a tougher challenge. The Lady Bobcats defeated Prairie Grove in the first round of the district tournament last year and faced Farmington for a chance to advance to the regional tournament but the Cardinals defeated Berryville in a heartbreaking fifth set to end the season with a 10-8-3 overall record. Coach Whetham will gear her team up for fierce competition from Harrison, Shiloh Christian, and Farmington again this year. The Lady Bobcats first game is scheduled for September 5thagainst Huntsville and will play a triple A benefit scrimmage on August 22nd. A complete schedule can be seen on kthsradio.com. KTHS will preview the Green Forest Lady Tiger volleyball team tomorrow.
Monday August 5th will be the first official day of practice in helmets for high school football teams around the state of Arkansas, including Carroll County teams in Green Forest and Berryville. Today we will take a look at the Berryville Bobcats hope for improvement in 2019. Third year Coach Doug Shott posted the most victories in a season last year in quite some time as the Bobcats finished 2018 with a 4-6 overall record and went 2-5 in conference play, good enough for 6th place. The four wins included victories over Yellville 42-0, Gravette 42-7, West Fork 28-14, and Green Forest 43-6. Berryville averaged over 20 points per game last year and Coach Shott will be relying on returning junior quarterback J. D. Smith to lead the team again. Berryville will have concerns with experience again this year as they will try to take the next step and overcome the top teams in the conference including Shiloh Christian, Prairie Grove, and Pea Ridge. Berryville will open the 2019 season on September 6th with a home game against West Fork at the new Bobcat Sports Complex and Ronnie Clark Field. Josiah Price will be the new voice of the Bobcats this season as he will bring you all the Bobcat football action on KTHS 107.1FM.
