ROSSBURG, Ohio — Billy Moyer is on top of the World again.
Moyer won the World 100 Saturday night at Eldora Speedway for a record-breaking sixth time.
The Batesville man qualified 48th of 134 cars Friday night and finished fourth in his heat. He made the feature by placing second in a last-chance qualifier and started the $43,000-to-win main event in 23rd position.
WEST PLAINS, Mo. — The Batesville Lady Pioneers saw their win streak come to an end here Saturday in the Show-me Showdown volleyball tournament in the West Plains Civic Center.

Lyon Sports Information
SILOAM SPRINGS — Martel Reid-Warden scored two goals for the second straight match and helped lead the Lyon College Scots to a 4-2 victory over No. 24 Oklahoma City on Saturday in the John Brown University Classic.
Reid-Warden booted a goal in the 60th minute and scored on an empty net from 11 yards out in the 89th minute. The forward leads all Scots with six goals this season.
SOUTHSIDE — The Riverview Raiders returned to Searcy with a 33-20 nonconference victory over the Southside Southerners Friday night.
Southside led 8-7 at the end of the first quarter, but Riverview scored five minutes into the second frame and kept the Southerners at bay.
Despite the win, Riverview Coach Stuart Hill was anything but satisfied after the game.
SEARCY — The Batesville Junior Pioneers outlasted the Searcy Lion Cubs en route to a 42-20 nonconference victory here Thursday night.
Batesville Coach Doug Walls said prior to the game that it would be important to not let Searcy jump ahead early. The Lion Cubs did that last year and Batesville was never able to recover, suffering their only loss of the season.
The Batesville Lady Pioneers remained unbeaten in 5A-Central Conference volleyball action with a 3-1 victory over the Vilonia Lady Eagles in Pioneer Gymnastium on Thursday night.
The game scores were 25-14, 25-18, 24-26, 25-18.
The Lady Pioneers won despite 18 service errors. They won, Coach Tanya Haigwood said, because, “We stayed aggressive … and our passing, setting and hitting were good. Our passing, especially when receiving serve, is getting better,” she added.
If holding up to the heat is a measure of what the 2010 Batesville junior and senior high cross country teams can do, this is a promising bunch.
“The heat made things much harder, but they just kept hanging in there and hanging in there,” said Diane Treadway, who directs the Lady Pioneers and Junior Lady Pioneers. “It was nice when we got this recent break in the weather.”
If “hanging in there” leads to a state championship for the Lady Pioneers, it will be their seventh straight. With four of their five scoring runners returning, that’s not a stretch.
EDEN ISLE — The Heber Springs Panthers won a triangular high school golf match at Red Apple Inn on Thursday.
Led by Tanner Rockwell’s 4-over-par 39, Heber Springs’ team score was 127, 20 strokes better than Southside. Lonoke finished another six strokes back.
Clayton House led Southside with a 43. Adding to the team score were Wyat Gambill (48) and Dalton Littleton (56). Tanner McGuire’s 58 and Chris Morris’ 64 did not count.
Louisiana-Monroe will have one factor in its favor when it tries to pull off the upset against No. 14 Arkansas: the element of mystery.
The Warhawks are only now playing their season opener, and that means no scouting report from last weekend to help the Razorbacks. In fact, even last year’s tapes might be a bit deceiving because Louisiana-Monroe has a new coach and a new quarterback.
“There’s no question about it,” Warhawks Coach Todd Berry said. “There are some unique things to us that they haven’t seen from us before or haven’t seen from me.”
