Benton Academy eyeing North State
The battle for the postseason is heating up in district 4A softball and by Monday, Benton Academy (13-13) could secure second place and their 12th consecutive trip to the North State playoffs in Cleveland next weekend.
The Lady Raiders had a pair of losses in non-conference action this week, 4-0 to Hillcrest and 6-4 to Veritas.
Benton was held to just a single hit in Saturday’s loss to Hillcrest. Terri Warren disrupted the potential no-hitter in their only game played at the annual Benton tournament. The rest of the day was called due to rain.
