MHS's Lentz Shines in All-Star Game

Thursday, June 28, 2018

Former Marmaduke Lady Greyhound standout Natalie Lentz played in the Arkansas High School Coaches Association All-Star basketball game Saturday in Conway, and had a good showing in the east squad's 86-79 loss to the west.

Lentz scored five points, and handed out two assists, on the team coached by Nettleton coach Jason Smith—a Piggott High School grad. She was joined on the east team by two Lady Rebels from Riverside, as Britteny Sain and Haven Robertson were also on the roster. Leading the east in scoring was Lonoke Lady Jackrabbit Keiunna Walker with 15 points, all coming on three-point-baskets.

In the boys game it was a NEARK show, as the east team rolled to a 124-87 win with regional players accounting for nearly 90 of those points. Paced by Travonta Doolittle of the Earle Bulldogs with 24, the squad also got a big game from Dante Adams, of Osceola, as he was chosen Most Valuable Player.

The games were played Saturday in the Ferris Center, on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas as part of All-Star week.

Saturday night the west squad pounded the east squad in the annual All-Star football game, with Prescott's Thomas Muldrew leading the way with 185 yards, and two touchdowns, on 11 carries. The contest wrapped up the week and was played in Estes Stadium on the UCA campus.
