Basketball by Joe
|Hello to all the Roses:
Paul Hensy joined ten Bentons and Newtons in Conway, Arkansas on Thursday night to watch Caty Hensy play her first collegiate basketball game. Watching the game with Paul was Joe and Linda Benton, Kevin and Jenny Newton, Tucker, Kade and Ashlynn Newton, Russ and Carolyn Benton and Carolyn's grandson, Jared.
Caty is a freshman at Hendrix College in Conway. Russ and Phil Benton are graduates of Hendrix and both played basketball while in college there.
The game was played at the University of Central Arkansas (UCA), also in Conway and a crosstown rival of Hendrix. Joe, Linda, Joey and Jenny are all UCA graduates.
UCA has about 15,000 students and is a NCAA Division I School and Hendrix is a smaller school with a little over 1,000 students. Hendrix plays in NCAA Division III.
The Hendrix girls played very well against a stronger UCA team. Caty is a very talented basketball player and it looks like she will have a great career at Hendrix. We look forward to seeing her play many more times.
