Spring Football Underway in Lumberjack Land

The Warren Lumberjack Football team has been preparing for the 2017 season by conducting Spring football practice.  According to Coach Hembree, the final practice is set for May 18th.

There appears to be a good number of candidates out practicing and it is obvious there is some excellent talent on the team.  Some big shoes will have to be filled as a  result of graduation. Warren is losing an outstanding quarterback and running back from the 2016 state championship team as well as several outstanding defenders.  There is a good number of returning starters and the potential of a very good team for 2017.

As Coach Hembree always says, there has to be dedication, commitment and leadership.  Each year is a new season.  Warren fans are excited as the team enters the summer off season and prepares to defend it's 8AAAA conference and AAAA state titles.

Weevils Win GAC Championship

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. — The University of Arkansas at Monticello baseball team defeated Henderson State in the GAC Championship game Sunday afternoon by a final score of 6-1.

This contest was a rematch of the Great American Conference title game a year ago as UAM (32-19) took on the Reddies of HSU (32-21) in yet another championship bout.

The Weevils took a 3-0 lead after the second inning of play with RBI hits from Austin Brakebill, Lathan McFadden, and Brian Ray which gave the defending champions an early advantage.

Henderson State was able to generate a run in the third inning, but UAM answered right back in the top of the fourth after a HSU error saw Lathan McFadden cross the plate to put the game at 4-1 in the Weevils' favor.
