Basketball Teams Fall Short At Star City

Vincent Stepps takes a shot inside.
Just a few weeks ago, the Warren Lumberjack Sr. Girls, Sr. Boys and Jr. Boys traveled to StarCity to play what should have been a home game in Warren, but was moved to Star City due to construction issues with the Warren gym.  That night the Jr. boys lost a very close game, the Sr. Girls beat Star City for the first time in years and the Sr. boys sportsmanship ruled Star City.  Friday night, February 1st proved to be a less enjoyable evening.

The Jr. Girls lost 36-14 and the Sr. Girls lost 49-33.  The Sr. Girls fell way behind in the first quarter and clawed their way back, getting to within three points in the fourth quarter, only to let the game get away.  Warren battled depth problems due to fouls and injuries.  They seemed to run out of gas, but made a valiant effort.

The Sr. boys played hard and well in the first quarter, but incredible shooting by Star City, including a high percentage of three pointers made and excellent free throw shooting was too much for the Sr. boys to overcome.  They never quit but could not catch up. 

Lumberjack basketball teams will face Crossett Tuesday, February 5th on Sr. night, when the Warren Seniors will be honored.  The game will be a home game for Warren but will be played at Fordyce, due to the work ongoing on the Warren gym.  Warren fans are urged to make the short drive to Fordyce and support the Lumberjacks in basketball.
The Lady Jacks battle hard.

Razorback Baseball Home to Have New Name

Home of Razorback Baseball changed to Baum-Walker Stadium at George Cole Field

Online Version:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – In recognition of the extraordinary longtime support of the Walker Family and the Willard and Pat Walker Charitable Foundation, the nation’s top collegiate baseball ballpark has been renamed Baum-Walker Stadium at George Cole Field. On Thursday, the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees approved a resolution renaming the stadium that has been home to Razorback Baseball since 1996. Arkansas will open its 2019 season at Baum-Walker Stadium on Friday, February 15 against Eastern Illinois at 3 p.m.

The Willard and Pat Walker Family have been instrumental in supporting Razorback Baseball for many years. The Walkers gave a signature gift to enable the University of Arkansas to build Baum Stadium in the early 1990s. Initial plans had called for a renovation of the existing George Cole Field, but thanks in large part to the Walkers’ gift, and a gift from their friends, the Charlie Baum family, a new state-of-the-art stadium was constructed. The Walkers have remained steadfast supporters of the Razorbacks, including Razorback Baseball. Most recently, the Walker Charitable Foundation pledged $5 million in support of a new Baseball Performance Center to be constructed in the right field corner of the stadium.

“For more than four decades the Walker Family has been integral in the transformation of Razorback Athletics and most importantly the enhancement of the lives of our student-athletes,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek said. “Nowhere has that been more evident than with their support of Razorback Baseball. Through their unwavering support of our program, the Walker Family has enabled our baseball program to emerge as one of nation’s best. The beautiful place we call home for baseball wouldn’t exist without the Walkers. I want to thank Johnny Mike (Walker) and Mandy Macke for their continued commitment to the Razorbacks. It is fitting that from this day forward, this iconic ballpark will celebrate not only the Walkers’ tremendous contributions to our program, but the friendship that linked these two special families.”

Willard Walker and Charlie Baum worked together for Walmart founder Sam Walton in the early days of the company. The families were friends and combined philanthropic efforts to support several projects in Northwest Arkansas including Baum Stadium and Baum Walker Hall, the main auditorium at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville.

“Razorback Baseball has been a longstanding passion for our family,” Johnny Mike Walker said. “From my days as a Razorback player to our family relationships with legendary coaches Norm DeBriyn and Dave Van Horn, we have enjoyed the opportunity to be part of such a special program. To have our name associated with the Baums and the Razorback program in the formal name of the baseball stadium is something I know my parents would be very proud of. We are grateful to be honored in such a meaningful way.”

The Walker Charitable Foundation and the Walker Family have been long-time benefactors of the University of Arkansas and Razorback Athletics. They are the namesakes of the Walker Family Training Center, which includes the Willard and Pat Walker Pavilion and the Razorbacks’ spectacular 18,000 square-foot weight room facility. The Walker Foundation made a grant to help fund the Fred W. Smith Football Center. The Walkers also made a gift for the construction of Bud Walton Arena which includes the Willard and Pat Walker Entry.

In addition to their support of Razorback Athletics, the Walkers have made signature gifts to the College of Business’ Willard J. Walker Hall, the Pat Walker Student Health Center and the Fowler House. In 2009, the Walker Charitable Foundation made a significant donation for need based academic scholarships at the University of Arkansas.
