Arkansas' state high school softball championship games will head to Benton, after all.
The Arkansas Activities Association made the announcement Monday morning after having to make changes twice within the last 24 hours because of collegiate softball tournament announcements.
The seven games were originally scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Bogle Park, but they had to be moved when Arkansas was selected to be one of 16 NCAA regional sites Sunday night. The AAA then announced minutes later that the games would be moved to Farris Field at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, but the dates and times would remain the same.
However, UCA was selected later Sunday night to be one of four regional hosts for the National Invitational Softball Championships, and that tournament will be held Wednesday through Friday. That caused the AAA to look for another site for its championship games.
The games will be played at Benton High School, with the dates and times remaining the same.
