Raiders keep improving with conference action
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
The Raiders of Benton Academy haven’t been dominating opponents, but are finding ways to win ball games through solid pitching and small-ball hitting strategies.
Through a month and a half of play, Benton has logged a 4-3 overall record, including two wins in conference play. Both of the Raiders’ conference wins came against Central Holmes over the course of three days.
However, there are still plenty more games left on the table.
Benton faces a week of games that include two against conference opponent Sharkey-Issaquena. The Raiders can put themselves in position to win their conference with a sweep of Sharkey next week, but the real tests will come in April.
