CLARKSVILLE -- The Pirates and Lady Pirates took their show on the road again, this time to Clarksville to run in the University of the Ozarks Invitational. For the Junior Lady Pirates, Bree McCrotty paced the entire field and was the junior girls individual champion with a time of 13:57. The Lady Pirates finished third overall out of 13 teams. McCrotty was followed by Emily Jones (15:20), Carley Nantze (15:35), Jaidyn Eby (16:12), Piper Koster (17:08), Zoie Stutzman (17:21), Tori Metzer (17:27), Allyson Casey (18:35), Ella Beene (19:44), Avie Reams (19:49), Cady Metzer (20:08), Savanah Daubenheyer (20:25), Olivia Mercier (22:06), Ava Moreland (22:07), Hannah Clayton (22:28), Bailey Metzer (22:47), and Ciarra Shoufler (23:14), Bailey Titsworth and Elouise Chesser went out with injuries. "I was really impressed with our junior girls," Dover head coach Mike Heath said. "Every time they go out now they have targets on their backs and for them to do as well as they did in as tough a field as there was was a great accomplishment. We were without our No. 2 runner, Whitley Singleton, so we had to have some runners step their game up and they did. Emily, Carley, Jaidyn, and piper ran strong races. Bree came out and took care of business and paced us and it was great to see her true to form. Winning a race such as this against these 13 teams is a big deal. We had to compete against the bigger schools like Russellville and that makes it a little tougher but we like that challenge. We won this one last year and just came up short this year." The Junior Pirates placed a very respectful sixth place in a very tough field of 14 teams. They were paced by standouts Landon Canfield at 13:36 and Josh Soto 13:38. They were followed by Xain Eby (14:49), Jakob Lang (15:02), Caleb Raney (15:45), Russell Rook (16:14), CJ Hogins (16:24), Jacob Combs (16:41), Zakary Lang (16:57), Jaques Keener (16:51), Ty Bates (17:19), and Clay Drake (22:44). "I challenged these guys to get things into gear and they responded with one of their best races I have ever seen them run," Heath said. "They ran like I envisioned them to run. Canfield and Soto are becoming a powerful 1-2 punch and now Eby is staring to figure things out and be competitive. Eby has all the tools he just needs to start pushing hard. He and Lang, Raney, Rook and Hogins provide valuable depth and the rest of this team provides even more depth. If they will continue to get better we could have a chance of doing some big things in October." The Pirates were led by Issac Lindsey with a time of 26:18. He was followed by Seth Wagner at 29:34. "Both these guys pushed hard today," Heath said. "I was glad to see Seth get in under 30 and now I am gonna push him for 27 or 28. Issac was impressive today at 26 minutes but I want to see that get down to the 23s within 2 weeks. I believe these guys can do it." The Lady Pirates were paced by Bekah Williams at 28:00. She was followed by Melanie Milsap (31:08) and Brynn Bates (31:55). "I was proud of these rascals," Heath said. "This was a tough field and the conditions were sloppy. I look for these girls to keep working hard and getting these times down." ...

HEBER SPRINGS — Several local teams competed in the annual Josh Park Memorial Cross Country Invitational. The Junior Lady Pirates won their fourth consecutive championship dating back to last year’s 4A-4 District Championship run, five of their last six meets. The Lady Pirates were led by Whitley Singleton, she medaled, placed sixth and ran a sub-15 in the hot conditions at 14:58. She was followed by fellow runners Emily Jones medalist eighth-place (16:07), Carley Nantze, medalist 17th-place (16:11), Jaidyn Eby (16:42), Tori Metzer (17:26), Zoie Stutzman (17:57), Piper Koster (18:50), Allyson Casey (19:05), Savanah Daubenheyer (19:29), and Avie Reams (21:22). “I wasn’t sure exactly where we would start out this year, and was thankful to see us come out on top,” said Dover head coach Mike Heath. “This race is probably one of the toughest in the state when you figure in the competition, the terrain and unfortunately the brutal heat. We had a great showing from our girls and had one, Bree McCrotty go down from the heat. She was running strong but just hit a wall out there. This race is always full of traditional power teams such as Heber Springs and Harrison to name a few, so to come and perform like these junior girls did says a lot about them. I want to say this is the first time we have won this meet. We got edged out by seconds last year by Melbourne. We still have a long ways to go to accomplish our goals and only hard work and time will tell.” The Pottsville Apaches had a team time of 1:10:05. Top runners were Jaxson Cox, Sebasstyn Bartlett, Logan Tatro, Colby Eglioff and Colton Cole. Cox medaled for fifth-place in the 1-4A division with a time of 12:59:75 and received 13th overall out of 380 runners. Karsyn Moudy placed ninth in the 1-4A division for the junior girls with a time of 15:24:31 and 17th overall out of 306 runners. The Lady Apaches placed fourth out of 21 teams. Russellville competed in the 5-6A Division, where Brooklyn Nicholson was the overall winner with a time of 14:23.72. Ali Lara, a seventh-grader, finished fourth overall with a time of 14:48.68. The Lady Whirlwinds finished third overall. River Hardman medaled for Russellville on the men with a time of 13:26.36. Shawn Metz medaled in 13:27.71. The Whirlwinds finished fifth overall....

You can find Morgan Beck, 21, most Fridays walking the sideline at Jack Berry Field with her camera ready to capture the Dover Pirates football team in action. “Football is my favorite sport to capture so you will most likely see me at all Dover football games on the sidelines this season,” she said. “I’m passionate about photography. I started my love for it way back in eighth-grade at Dover School District. My teacher, Sharla Hartzell, has a way of showing her students the art of photography and how to make an image tell a story. I started my own business four years ago, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without her. I enjoy taking sports photos more than anything because I love being able to share those memories with the community.” Beck was born and raised in Russellville. She said she stays here because of everything the city offers her. “It’s expanding, and I like knowing I’m here to watch it grow and succeed,” she said. Beck graduated from Dover High School in 2016 and is currently a freelance photographer in the Arkansas River Valley....
