Opening statement:

Van Horn: “What a great pitching duel actually. I think both pitchers gave it their all. Connor, seven innings, gave up seven hits. You look at DeLucia, the same, four hits, seven strikeouts. Connor (Noland ) had seven strikeouts. We had a few chances, but just kind of baseball, the way it works, we hit a couple balls hard in the middle of the innings, and we just kept hitting the ball at them, and they made the other plays. Dylan just did. He did a great job there. He didn’t walk. He didn’t give us a chance. We didn’t have a point guard once. in nine innings.

“It’s hard to score against a good pitcher when the point guard doesn’t come up here and there. So disappointed we lost, but so proud of my team. Just proud of how they really fought those four or five last few weeks to get back to where we knew we should be, and that’s here in Omaha. I told them after the game how proud I was of them. I’m not going — I had a little trouble talking, but I told them I’m not going to cry. I’m not going to cry when you finish your season in Omaha.”

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – A federal appeals court on Wednesday upheld Arkansas’ law requiring state contractors to pledge not to boycott Israel, ruling the restriction is not an unconstitutional violation of freedom of expression.

Last year, the US Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit overturned a 2-1 ruling by a three-judge court panel that found the requirement unconstitutional. The Arkansas Times had filed a lawsuit to block the law, which requires contractors in the state to cut their fees by 20% if they don’t sign the recognizance.

BY DUDLEY E. DAWSON

OMAHA, Neb. –A year ago around this time, Houghton, La. prep baseball star Peyton Stovall was pondering what his future would be like the following summer.

Would Major League Baseball teams meet his asking price and take him to the first round of the July draft and thus immediately launch his professional career?

Or would he go to Fayetteville and play for one of college baseball’s elite programs with the idea of ​​eventually playing in the College World Series?

Razorback fans are no doubt happy that he ended up doing the latter.

Stovall continued his College World Series hot shot Tuesday night by going 5 of 6 with three RBIs in Arkansas’ 11-1 playoff win over Auburn.

Stovall is now 9 of 16 in three games in Omaha with a team-leading and CWS-leading 10 RBIs and increased his season average from .253 to over .300 in the postseason.

“I’m just playing with confidence,” Stovall told the SEC Network after the game. “That’s the biggest thing for me and the biggest thing for this team. Just getting out and relaxing and having fun.

Arkansas wide receiver Michael Turner, who had three of his team’s 16 hits in the win, knew Stovall was on the verge of a breakout.

“He’s a stallion,” Turner said. “We’ve said it all year. Work extremely hard. He sees the ball deep in the area. I feel like at the start of the year, we kind of talked a bit. He was a little nervous, trying to do too, which happens to everyone.

“But he sees the ball very well at the moment. Even his shots, he sees it very well. It’s fun to watch and fun to hit with guys on base too.

Stovall had four singles — including a first-inning single that put his team up 1-0 — a double, three RBIs and tackles twice in a night Arkansas scored 10 runs with two outs.

His five-hit game made him the 16th player in CWS history to record more than five hits in a game and the first since North Carolina’s Dustin Ackley against Southern Miss in 2009.
Stovall’s five hits were the most by a player in Charles Schwab Field history and matched the most ever by a freshman in the CWS.
“I had my struggles throughout the season, but I knew if I had the opportunity in the playoffs, I would do everything I could for the team,” Stovall said.

“I’m just happy and grateful to be here and I’m blessed.”

Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn, whose team faces Ole Miss Wednesday night at 6 p.m., knew what he was getting at Stovall.

But Van Horn, whose team needs two wins over the Rebels to advance to the championship series, also knew expectations would be a challenge for the youngster.

“He had unrealistic expectations of him because he was a guy who turned down a lot of money,” Van Horn said. “He wasn’t even drafted (after) that he was maybe going to go in the first round. He wanted to go to college.

“And he just felt a lot of pressure. Social media and everything and you read everything and preseason this, preseason that. It’s hard to impose that on children who haven’t even seen a
college arms again.

“…He was really good last month. And like Michael said, even his takes are good. He was in front. He’s not a forward type hitter.

Stovall has been a versatile hitter during this current hot spell.

“He’s pretty balanced,” Van Horn said. “Stay back, and he does now. He starts hitting for power, hitting for average, walking around. And we really got to see the future last month. It was funny,”

Van Horn picked a good time to move Stovall from eighth to second in the order, as he did on Tuesday during his trade with Brady Slavens.

“The game kind of tells you what to do from time to time,” Van Horn said. “I feel like Brady isn’t swinging the bat like he did even last weekend. He struggled yesterday and maybe the second half of the game here.

“And Peyton swung it well, the whole thing, I guess – maybe even towards the end of the season. I was going to say he’s done really well since we finished the regular season, but he did well a bit later.

“But he’s been really good since the playoffs started. So I thought about it last night. I thought I was going to flip those two.

Auburn head coach Butch Thompson was also impressed with Stovall, who sat out the regular-season series with the Tigers due to a finger injury.

“He’s a talent,” Thompson said. “I know what he came out of high school. And sometimes you can get off to a slower start and then be there… Just a stable, good, promising player with a bright future that, it happens.

With temperatures rising across the state this week, Arkansas Department of Health officials are encouraging people to practice thermal safety.

ARKANSAS, USA — With temperatures rising across the state this week, Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) officials are encouraging people to practice thermal safety.

Some of the most common heat-related illnesses include heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, sunburn and heat rash. “It is important for everyone to know the warning signs and what to do if someone has one of these illnesses,” an ADH statement read.

The body normally cools itself by sweating, but in some conditions sweating is not enough. Children under four, adults 65 and older, overweight people, and people taking certain medications are most likely to be negatively affected by heat.

Heatstroke: Symptoms include abnormally high body temperature; hot, red, dry or moist skin; a rapid and strong pulse; headache; dizziness; nausea; confusion; and fainting. If you think you or someone is showing symptoms of heatstroke, call 911 immediately, move to a cooler area, and try to bring down body temperature by applying cool cloths and drinking water. ‘water.

The ADH reminds that heat-related illnesses are preventable and lists some tips to avoid a bad reaction to rising temperatures:

  • Stay in an air-conditioned space during the hottest hours of the day. If your home doesn’t have air conditioning, consider public places like a library, senior center, or shopping mall.
  • Wear light, loose clothing.
  • Drink water often. Don’t wait to be thirsty.
  • Avoid unnecessary exertion or activity if you are outdoors or without air conditioning.
  • Avoid unnecessary sun exposure. Wear a hat and sunglasses when out in the sun.
  • Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher as directed and reapply as needed

Heat exhaustion: Symptoms of heat exhaustion are different from heatstroke in that you will have cold, pale, clammy skin and a weak pulse as opposed to a strong pulse with heatstroke. Move to a cooler location and apply cold cloths to the body and sip water if you suspect someone is suffering from heat exhaustion.

Seek immediate medical attention if vomiting, dizziness, or symptoms worsen or last longer than 1 hour.

Heat cramps: Heat cramps can be identified in people who sweat profusely during exercise and have muscle pain or spasms. If you think you have heat cramps, stop all physical activity and move to a cool place, drink water, and wait for the cramps to subside before continuing to exercise. If someone is on a low sodium diet, has heart problems, or cramps last longer than an hour, they should see a doctor immediately.

Sunburn: Sore, red, hot skin and blisters on the skin would indicate sunburn. Stay out of the sun until the burn heals, put cool cloths on the sunburned areas or take a cool bath, put moisturizing lotion on the sunburned areas and don’t break the blisters .

Heat Buttons: Symptoms include red clusters of small, pimple-like blisters on the skin, usually on the neck, chest, groin, or elbow creases.

FAYETTEVILLE – The talented cornerback of Gardendale (Alabama) Dallas Young enjoyed a very good visit to Arkansas this weekend.

Young, 6-1, 180, was one of nine official visitors to Arkansas. He committed to Arkansas on Dec. 29 on a long list of other schools. After the official visit over the weekend, Young explained how it went.

“The tour went well, I really enjoyed it,” Young said. “That was probably the most fun time being here, with my game visit. We have a really good class coming in, and I just want all the fans to just believe in being good, and don’t have not just one winning season, I want it to be consistent winning and dominating. That’s my biggest thing and hopefully we get those two linemen who have come down. They’re pretty big and I’m going to get them. would love on my team. But other than that, solid visit for everyone.”

Young is recruited in Arkansas by Dominique Bowman. He developed a good relationship with Bowman.

“I love it,” Young said. “He’s a very technical guy. He’ll break it all down with the footwork, the way you move, the coaster, everything, so it’s really the mechanics with him.

Young said the official visit helped ensure he made the right decision on Dec. 19 about his future school.

“Most definitely, yes,” Young said. “It just reassured me that there is better for me out there.”

Young traveled to Arkansas for day-long scouting visits, but the trip gave him more access to the team’s current players.

“Yes sir, we can hang out with them a lot more and just be with them,” Young said. “It was a very fun experience.”

It was a fun experience Sam Pittman and the staff had for the players on Friday night that turned out to be the highlight for Young.

“Probably Friday night media day,” Young said. “They had a role for us, we got exhausted and we kind of danced and everything, it was kind of fun.”

When Young joined Arkansas, his recruiter and future coach was Sam Carter. On Sunday, he spoke about Carter’s transition to Bowman as well with Sam Pittman’s role in recruiting.

“It was pretty tough,” Young said. “Coach Carter, I talked to him and he talked to my mom almost every day, so when Coach Bowman came, it was just to trust Pitt. That was my biggest thing because really, I signed up for Carter, but I also signed up for Coach Pittman He’s a down to earth guy, just loyal to you, so I made sure if I sign up, then I sign up. towards the University.

Anthony Brown was his player recruiting host. Some of the recruits said Young was one of the vocal leaders for the Class of 2023. He also talked about that and also talked about his dream school growing up.

“My dream school was Florida State, so I thought I was going to Florida State all through the summer of 10th grade,” Young said. “I went with my hairdresser once, he’s an Arkansas fan, and I never even thought about going to Arkansas. I went there and it changed everything, my whole thinking about Arkansas. So when I saw that it changed me, I was talking to a lot of people in Alabama or just guys I know down south who really don’t think about Arkansas, (telling them ) to just think of them and come up and visit, that’s all I can do. If you like the visit, I know I got you.

Young is Arkansas’ only committed defensive back in the Class of 2023 right now, but they would have struggled to find a better base for what will likely be a secondary group of talented rookies.

Arkansas will experience its first serious heat wave of the year this weekend, according to the National Weather Service in North Little Rock.

After hitting around 90 degrees today, high temperatures Sunday and Monday will be in the upper 90s for much of the state, said National Weather Service meteorologist Colby Pope.

But it will be more like 105 degrees because of the rain-saturated grounds, he said.

The Pope said high temperatures will be in the 90s at least through Thursday. A brisk wind will make things a bit better on Tuesday.

“Sunday and Monday are the days I really worry about in terms of the heat because we just got all this rain,” he said. “I consider it one of the most dangerous parts of the year because we haven’t acclimatized to it yet.”

Pope said heat advisories could be issued for central and southern Arkansas, but they had not been issued by mid-afternoon Friday.

The weather service sent out a hazardous weather forecast later Friday afternoon.

“Hot, humid and at times oppressive conditions will prevail in the region on Sunday through the middle of next week,” it read. “Daily high temperatures will climb into the low to mid-90s … and heat index values ​​will likely approach or exceed 100 to 105 degrees on some afternoons, with Sunday and Monday currently showing the most widespread potential. for heat index values ​​of the heat advisory level (105 degrees or more).

“In addition to a daytime heat threat, overnight lows will also be of concern…for example, overnight lows in the mid-70s associated with dew point temperatures in the low 70s, resulting in potential relief/cooling minimal overnight.

“Given several days of blistering heat and poor overnight cooling/relief in the forecast through the first half of next week, be sure to check those who will be most vulnerable, adjust exterior plans accordingly and ensure that pets are brought indoors during peak heating hours.”

Colby said people should drink plenty of water and take breaks if they’re outside this weekend.

Fort Smith received the most rain in the state with 2.7 inches in the 24-hour period ending at 3 p.m. Friday, Pope said. Monticello got 2.47 inches over the same span. Hot Springs got 1.86 inches. Little Rock and Fayetteville each got just over half an inch.

Pope said it will be slightly cooler Sunday and Monday in northern Arkansas with heat index readings in the mid to high 90s.

Heavy rains in Sebastian County flooded several roads, rendering them impassable early Friday morning, according to Capt. Philip Pevehouse of the sheriff’s office.

“Do not drive on flooded roadway,” he said in an 8 a.m. news release. “We currently have several vehicles blocked and we are grateful that no one has been injured so far. Do not drive around barricades or law enforcement who are doing their best to block impassable roads.”

A few rivers in Arkansas were in the stage of minor flooding Friday afternoon. This included the Arkansas River in Van Buren and Ozark, the White River in Augusta and Clarenden, and the Fourche LaFave River near Houston, Ark.
