  • Batesville drops charter

    Batesville Schools’ hopes of being approved for a $350,000 charter grant will have to wait.
    In an effort to gain more public support and input, the district has decided not to apply for the five-year trial grant for its junior high, which, if approved by the State Board of Education, would have gone into effect in the 2010-11 school year.
    While the benefits of a charter status is something the district stands behind, Superintendent Ted Hall also understands the importance of having a community standing behind what it sees as something positive for both students and teachers.

  • Eagle Mtn. takes title

    Second in the state, 11th in the nation, first in the world.
    It’s been quite a year for the Eagle Mountain Magnet archery team. Just ask Susan Parker.
    “It wasn’t what I expected, that’s for sure,” the coach said with a laugh when asked about her team’s first-year success.
    On Sunday the group of more than 20 archers won the National Archery in the Schools Program world tournament in Orlando, Fla., beating out more than 500 other archers from 18 states and Canada with a score of 3,149 points out of a possible 3,600, including 106 bull’s-eyes.

  • Some numbers give instructions on BHS-Wynne

    Numbers can be instructive. Take a look at these:
    The Batesville Pioneers managed to get out of Wynne last fall with a 14-12 victory despite being doubled in first downs (16-8) and more than doubled in rushing yards (307-109) and offensive plays (63-29).
    Even more telling are these:
    That loss to the Pioneers last October made the Yellowjackets 0-4 in the 5A-East District and 0-7 overall. Four weeks later they were 3-4, 3-7 and in the state playoffs.
    Batesville Coach Dave King said it best about the resilient ’Jackets.

  • Cavemen set to begin toughest part of 3A-3 test

    The bar has risen for the unbeaten Cave City Cavemen (6-0) as the Rivercrest Colts (5-1) make the 128-mile gallop from near the banks of the Mississippi River.
    Each team is 3-0 in the 3A-3 District, but most will argue Cave City’s opponents to this point have been much weaker than what Rivercrest has gone up against. Cave City Coach Jon Bradley is among them.
