PLAY BALL!

Members of the White Hall School baseball team line the dugout railing before Friday’s 2014 season opener against Arkadelphia. The Bulldogs, who won the Class 5A state championship in 2012, led for most of the game but allowed two runs in the top of the seventh inning as Arkadelphia rallied for a 3-2 victory.

Headed To State

White Hall’s Lindsey Williams looks for a path to the basket during a game against Dumas earlier this season. The Lady Bulldogs (19-6), who finished second in the 5A-South, will face defending state champion Jacksonville in the first round of the Class 5A state tournament at 7 p.m. Friday in Alma.
