The latest news from Mountain Home Public Schools Athletic Director Janet Wood.
From the AD 12-8-14
We are extremely proud of former Bomber standout Ben Worlow. The Batesville article said, “Life just keeps getting better for Lyon College center Ben Worlow (SR/Mountain Home, AR). Worlow set personal-career scoring marks in three consecutive games this week, topping the five-day span off with a 45 point effort as the Scots rolled over Missouri Baptist University 70-55”. Not only is Ben a very good basketball player, he is an outstanding young man. He certainly has represented the Bombers, both on and off the court, in a very positive manner.
While watching games at Forsythe, I had the pleasure of visiting with former Lady Bomber Stephanie Davenport. She was an integral part of the Lady Bomber basketball success. Stephanie's husband coaches football and baseball for Branson and they brought their two teenage children to watch the game. It is always great to see our former athletes grow up and have families of their own.
Congratulations to the girls' bowling team for starting their season off with a win at Cabot. The boys finished in third place. We will host Flippin this afternoon at Driftwood Family Bowling.
We will host our first home Wrestling match tomorrow at the Hangar starting at 5:00 vs Russellville. Coaches Damon Eikenhorst and Travis Alexander are both very excited about the upcoming season. We will participate in a match this Saturday at Har-ber.
Both swim teams did well at a huge 16 team meet in Springdale. We will travel to Paragould tomorrow.
Both basketball teams participated in tournaments over the week-end. The Bombers dropped a close game to Branson in the finals of the Forsythe, MO tournament after defeating Reed Springs and Flippin. The Lady Bombers lost their first two games in the Fayetteville Invitational to Prairie Grove and Springfield Hillcrest, before defeating Collierville, TN in the consolation bracket. The Lady Bombers will play Shiloh Christian at Valley Springs this Friday at 6:30 while the Bombers will play in the Paragould Invitational starting Thursday.
Our 7th girls, 7th boys, 9th girls, and 9th boys will host Valley Springs this afternoon at the junior high. Both 9th grade teams will travel to West Plains this Thursday.
The Bomber Booster Club will meet today at Holy Smokes at 11:30. Everyone is invited to attend. The meetings are informal and we are currently discussing our next major event, the 1st Arkansas Bail Bonds Holiday basketball tournament set for December 29, 30, and 31.
