The Walnut Ridge boys and girls teams, and the Sloan-Hendrix girls, advanced to the second round of the Northeast Arkansas Invitational Basketball Tournament in Jonesboro recently, while three other Lawrence County teams lost their first-round matchups.

Second round
S-H - Weiner girls

After ousting Black Rock in the opening round, the Sloan-Hendrix Lady Greyhounds fell to Weiner 64-46 on Dec. 22.

Weiner led 15-13 after a close first quarter. The Lady Cardinals pushed the lead to 27-15 in the second quarter before the Lady Hounds rallied to close the gap to 29-23 at halftime.

Weiner again threatened to pull away in the third quarter, opening up a 15-point advantage at 39-24. Sloan-Hendrix fought back to trail by only 10 at the end of the third period, 39-29. The Lady Greyhounds closed the deficit to single digits with less than four minutes to play at 49-41, but Weiner ended the game on a 15-5 run to seal the victory.
