I watched girls at the Valley View tournament last night. Haven't seen any of the boys teams play. Of the girls teams I've watched through the summer, I'd say Melburn's jr. High girls are about as good as anybody. Beebe has a really, really good Jr. High girls team as well. Lake Hamilton's team is very good and Annie camp will be tough, as usual. GCT, Batesville, and Nettleton are up there, too, as usual.

Of the girls teams I'm watching in this tournament, Valley View, MacArthur, and Trumann are the standouts.

LISA Academy North's Junior Boys are 3-0 in conference beating Marvell by 30 and Bradford and Quest Academy by 40+.  Good group to watch the rest of the way

Saw Newport Jr. boys play a pretty good Harding Academy team last night. Junior Hounds are big, athletic and talented. They are quick to the ball. And they play tough defense. They use those long arms to good advantage, deflecting pass after pass and blocking numerous shots.

Coach “H” has been working on those girls for quite a while. They’re a tough bunch of kids.

They don't have a super record, but Harding Academy Jr. Wildcats proved last night that they could surprise most anybody on a given night. They overcame about a 15-point halftime deficit to defeat a very talented CAC team at CAC.

They did this despite the fact that fortune seemed to smile on CAC with an approximately 55-foot shot by No. 5 to beat the 1st Qtr. buzzer. Yep, well past center court.

Melbourne's jr girls would beat most schools senior high teams.  Talented group of girls.  Melbourne is going to be tough to handle for several years.

That is a talented bunch, and well coached.  Can't agree with the thought that they'd beat most sr. high teams, however.  I watched GCT's jr high girls thump them pretty good at their last meeting this summer, and GCT's jr high girls are good, but not THAT good.  Nonetheless, expect the Melbourne senior high girls team to be taking home a state trophy within two years.  Will happen.  Those kids are players.

Thanks for the compliment. However, it’s hard to compare summer camp games to the regular season.  Coaches do things in the summer for development that they wouldn’t do during the regular season. In the summer game, Melbourne’s starters did not play during the second half. Melbourne beat GCT in their first game of the regular season.

They would definitely beat most of the senior high teams around the Izard/Fulton/Sharp County area.

Pottsville beat them tonight 44-41

Dover Jr Girls are 19-2 beat a good Pottsville bunch 35-21 Tuesday night.  The thing that makes this impressive is that they start 4 eight graders.  Expect them to be even better next season.

Always good to hear that the future looks bright for my local schools

Annie Camp's jr. high girls finished their perfect record season last night by defeating McArthur.  Undefeated both in the 5A East and overall.  They are an exceptional bunch of young athletes, led by what I'm going to boldly call the best point guard in the state in her class.

They are very good. Annie Camp boys and girls both secured the #1 seed (on their side of the bracket) in their conference tournament.

Nashville Jr girls finish 21-0 and 7-4A champions. Won 15 games by at least 20 points. Closest game all year was a 12 point win over Lake Hamilton. Coach Laura Kidd enters retirement after a great career.

They are a good team.  Southwest Arkansas girls teams are as bad as I have ever seen them overall.
