The 2017 Warren Lady Jacks Soccer Team

The Warren Soccer Parents hosted a "Meet and Greet" for the public to meet the Warren Lumberjack Soccer Team and the Lady Jacks Soccer Team.  The event began with a barbeque dinner.  Following the dinner, the team members were individually introduced.  After the introductions, a silent auction for desserts and other items was held.  The event has thus far raised $1,200.00 which will be used for expenses the teams incur as they travel.  Last year, both teams earned berths in the state tournament with the Lady Jacks making it all the way to the semi-final round.

If you missed the event but would still like to donate, you may do so by contacting Mrs. Liz Richey or one of the coaches.

UAM Takes 2nd at Cheersport Nationals

Front Row, third from the right is Warren's own Krista Sparks!
Atlanta, Georgia — The University of Arkansas at Monticello cheerleading team finished in second place overall at the 2017 Cheersport Cheerleading Nationals this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Cheersport Nationals featured over 800 total teams competing over the weekend in Atlanta, and was the biggest competition UAM Cheer has ever been a part of. Teams from all over the United States were in attendance to showcase their elite cheerleading skills. Arkansas-Monticello finished second overall in its division, international small coed level 6, with a day one score of 82.20/100 (semi-finals), and a day two score of 82.57/100 (finals).

"I am very pleased with how the squad did this weekend," said UAM cheer coach Krystal Shipp. "On day one - we hit our pyramid solid getting a score of 8.8/10. This team has been a very strong "pyramid team" since the beginning of this school year. Our pyramid difficulty has grown tremendously since last year. It takes the entire team to hit a pyramid, they worked together and executed this section almost perfectly! On day two, our basket tosses got a score of 9.2/10. Our flyers are beginning to ride to the top before throwing their tricks, and our bases are doing better by using their legs to throw so that there is more height in our tosses."

Lumberjack Coach Talks to salineriverchronicle.com

Warren Lumberjack boys basketball coach Josh Nix stopped by the studio of salineriverchronicle.com and talked about the Sr. boys 2016-2017 basketball season to date and hopes to keep playing in the state regional tournament and the class AAAA state tournament.
Warren boys and girls will play their first games in the conference 84A tournament beginning Thursday February 16th at the Pine Bluff Convention Center.

Coach Nix, in his first year as the boys basketball coach stated that the guys are 16-11 on the year and 4-2 in conference play.  Warren plays in the 84A South conference and during the regular season played Monticello, Hamburg and Crossett twice each.  The conference tournament will consist of all eight teams which includes Dumas, Dollarway, DeWitt and Star City.  Warren will enter the tournament as the # 2 seed of the South division.  Their first game is Thursday, February 16th beginning at around 5:30 P.M.

Coach Nix stated that he feels the team has improved all year and is learning to finish strong.  He talked about having moved up 9th grader Vincent Stepps a couple of weeks ago to bolster the Sr, Team and said he has moved up T. J. Phillips and J. J. Hampton at the conclusion of the Jr. High Season to provide more depth.  He stated that when  Stepps moved to the Sr. Team, it allowed some of the Jr. High players to develop more rapidly.  It must have worked as the Jr. Jacks completed a very good year and won the 84A South Division District Tournament.

The coach indicated he is excited to be at Warren and believes the basketball program has a bright future.  When asked about getting the season started late every year due to the success of the football program, he grinned and said "that is a good thing."  He was sporting a Lumberjack football shirt during the interview.  He is dedicated to making Warren competitive in basketball year in and year out.
