VOTE: Destiny Mejia, Makenna Ward or Gabbi Scott as the Spring Sports Player of the Week.

Decatur's Destiny Mejia took the gold medal in the high jump at a meet in Elkins. Mejia is the two time 1A state champion in that event.


Makenna Ward, a Gentry sophomore, is the goalkeeper for the Lady Pioneer soccer team. She had 12 saves as of March 8.

Assistant soccer coach Jamie Johnson said, "Our goalkeeper has made amazing efforts despite what the scoreboard reflects, she literally stepped up two weeks ago to be the goalie, having never even played the position before, and has made some really amazing saves."


Gravette coach Taos Jones nominated Gravette's Gabbi Scott for this week's player of the week.

Scott is a member of the Lady Lions softball team. Scott is one of the team leaders in stolen bases along with her fielding abilities aided in Gravette's wins over the Vilonia Lady Eagles game in Farmington Softball tournament March 15. Her performance also contributed big shutout win over the Springdale Lady Bulldogs during the same tournament March 16.
