HEBER SPRINGS – Heber Springs got eight points from Sophie Joyner and seven points from Mackenzie Lozeau as the Panther seventh-grade girls basketball team claimed a 24-15 win over Newport.

Heber Springs (1-1) led 6-3 at the end of the first quarter, but trailed 12-11 at the break, thanks in part to four 3-pointers by the Greyhounds.

Newport would add another 3-pointer in the second half, but the Panthers would outscore the Greyhounds, 13-3, in the second half to claim their first win of the young season.
