Dickinson and Harper were accompanied on the softball field by head softball coach Paul Ernest and assistant coaches Ayla Smartt and Erica Jones.
GENTRY -- Last season, the old scoreboard on the softball field in the Merrill Reynolds Memorial Complex at Gentry High School worked for only three full games out of all the girls' home games, according to Paul Ernest, head softball coach at the high school. Things should be different this year and in the years to come, thanks to a gift from Farm Credit of Western Arkansas.
