TNT Fastpitch team garners 4th at State
TNT Fastpitch, a 12 and under girls' fastpitch team playing from Benton, earned a 4th place trophy at ASA B State this past weekend.
The tournament was held in Bentonville. TNT finished play on Sunday afternoon after a courageous weekend pitted against the state's toughest fastpitch teams.
TNT has qualified for ASA Southwest 6 Regionals to be held later this month in Lake Charles, La. TNT will proudly represent member home towns of Benton, Sheridan, Lonsdale, Haskell, Springhill, Grant County, and surrounding areas as they seek to qualify for Nationals. Sheridan's Shiloh Marlar (Sheridan Junior High) and Grant County's Sarah Hightower (Sheridan Junior High) helped TNT to top ranking in their responsibilities as pitchers; both girls enjoy the reputation of being among the best pitchers in their age brackets in the state. Although this is TNT's first spring season together, TNT succeeded in earning 1st, 2nd or 3rd place ranks in all area tournaments.
