The Sa­line County Quo­rum Court hon­ored the state cham­pion 2019 Har­mony Grove base­ball team dur­ing their meet­ing Mon­day night.

“If you don’t al­ready know,” said Sa­line County Judge Jeff Arey. “At the end of last year’s base­ball sea­son, the Har­mony Grove Car­di­nals won the 3A State Cham­pi­onship. We are very proud of them in my home­town of Haskell and in Sa­line County.”

The Car­di­nals de­feated Cen­tral Arkansas Chris­tian 4-3 in May at Baum-walker Sta­dium in Fayet­teville to cap­ture their first 3A Cham­pi­onship in school his­tory.

“It’s my plea­sure to present them with a Sa­line County procla­ma­tion,” Arey said.

Arey pre­sented the procla­ma­tion to Coach Bran­don Myn­hier.

“This is the first time in the his­tory of the school that the Car­di­nals have won a cham­pi­onship ti­tle,” Arey said.

Dur­ing his read­ing of the procla­ma­tion, Arey cited the hard work, sports­man­ship, ded­i­ca­tion and tal­ent of the stu­dent ath­letes as key el­e­ments of their suc­cess and lauded them for bring­ing honor to their school, the city of Haskell and Sa­line County.

Myn­hier was also men­tioned in the procla­ma­tion for his achieve­ments of be­ing named Tri-lakes and District Coach of the Year.

“The en­tire coach­ing staff, team mem­ber par­ents, fac­ulty and stu­dent body of Har­mony Grove High School were in­te­gral in guid­ing the team to vic­tory with un­wa­ver­ing sup­port,” Arey said.
