Softball tournament in memory of three cheerleaders

The annual Three Cheerleaders Memorial Softball Tournament is being held Saturday, May 25 - Sunday May 26 at the Sherwood Sports Complex.

Over 40 all-girl teams will compete from all over Arkansas and other states.

The tournament is held in memory of Alicia Rix, 16, Jae Lynn Russell, 16 and Taylore Hall, 15, who where killed in a car accident in 2004 just outside of Cabot. The girls' families developed scholarships in their names.

Jae Lynn, Alicia and Taylore were all cheerleaders and softball players. Tournaments in their memory have been held the past few years.

The families have raised over $250,000 and given nearly $110,000 in scholarships. Three recipients are selected each year; nearly 35 students have been encouraged in their education process.
