Tonight we head to the Rhodes for the Lady Bison and Bison basketball Senior Night games against Arkansas Tech. The No. 3 ranked Lady Bisons will put their 25-1 record on the line. A victory tonight ties them for the most wins in program history (1996-97).
I’ve had the privilege of watching two of the six Lady Bison seniors play since their days at Searcy High, Kristen Celsor and Lauren Harrison. It also has been fun to see these two sweet Christian ladies become engaged to the two seniors on the men’s team, Kristen to Hayden Johnson and Lauren to Weston Jameson.
Four other Lady Bison seniors, Lauren Crenshaw, Deshelle Isaac-Boyce, Katy Preaus and Tanja Steed, will play their last home regular season game tonight.
My inside track on the Rowdies tells me there is going to be an interesting matchup during halftime of the men’s game you won’t want to miss if you are in the area.
The senior Lady Bisons will be honored after the girls’ game and the senior Bisons, cheerleaders and Rowdies will be recognized Harding style after the men’s game. There may even be a few tears.
