The Times (Northeast Benton County) - - SPORTS - JOHN MCGEE Spe­cial to The TIMES

The Lady Black­hawk vol­ley­ball team en­ters their fi­nal week of the reg­u­lar sea­son with two con­fer­ence games left on their sched­ule.

The ’Hawks trav­eled to Alpena Tues­day, Oct. 10, and will host con­fer­ence leader Ber­ryville Thurs­day. Last week­end, the Lady ’Hawks played three games at McDon­ald County High School, split­ting a pair of matches with Di­a­mond (2-0, and 1-2) while tak­ing a 2-0 de­ci­sion over East New­ton.

Af­ter con­fer­ence play, the Lady ’Hawks will en­ter the 4A North­west District Tour­na­ment with the seed­ings to be de­ter­mined later this week. Cur­rently, the ’Hawks have the fifth best record of the nine teams in the tour­na­ment which qual­i­fies teams to the state tour­na­ment.

1A-4A District stand­ings Ber­ryville 8-1 Huntsville 6-2

Pea Ridge 5-3 Green For­est 3-6 Alpena 2-7 Eureka Springs 1-7

Lady­hawks rank 14th in state 4A

The Pea Ridge LadyHawk vol­ley­ballers have won two/thirds of their games to garner a No. 14 rank­ing among schools in the 4A clas­si­fi­ca­tion. Games in the district and state play­offs will be weighted heav­ier with re­gards to class rank­ings so teams hav­ing a good run through post sea­son could im­prove their rank­ings con­sid­er­ably.
