North Little Rock: Spring sports still swinging for state tournament bids

Just two weeks remain in the regular season and North Little Rock’s spring sports teams are, for the most part, still in contention for a spot in the various state tournaments.

Of the four teams, only boys soccer, 1-8 in conference, has fallen out of contention for a top six finish in the 6A-Central and a spot in the tournament to be held at Springdale.

Girls soccer, 6-2-2, is tied for third place with Conway and will head into the post-season looking strong.

The baseball Cats are 5-5 in the conference, while softball is 3-5, but both teams are still in the top 6 of standings. The 6A state baseball tournament is hosted by Fort Smith schools this May, while the softball state tournament is at Cabot.

All games are, of course, weather permitting and the forecast calls for severe weather on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week with temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

All schedules have been updated for wins and losses and also revised to reflect postponements and games that have been rescheduled.
