PBR AR 1A State Championship



6A Title bout will crown a new champion. Bentonville comes in as the hottest team in the tournament and Conway is as solid as you can get in all facets. Each team has left handed arms galore so look for this one to be a close game with whoever blinks being the team on the wrong side of the outcome.

Road to Benton: Defeated NLR Defeated Catholic, Defeated Har-Ber.

Outlook: Hot is an understatement. Sohosky on the mound presents a tough matchup for Conway as he has been solid all season long. The Bentonville offense has found a way to put up big runs and being down to their last out show no signs of giving in at any point. 

CONWAY

Road to Benton: Defeated Southside 3-0. Defeated Heritage 10-0.

Outlook: Conway may be the most complete team in the tournament. They have a 3 headed monster on the mound and an offense that puts together at bat after at bat wearing the opposing pitcher down. Wampus Cats will have to be beat as they don't typically beat themselves.
