The synopsis in the production’s program states that “Monday Always Leads to Murder is a fast-paced, clue-strewn mystery comedy play with an effort to solve some murders that took place some 20 years ago and some even just to days ago.

Several years ago while returning from a fishing trip to Arkansas, I was pulled over by a police officer.

Bailey Allen (11-6) got the start in the circle and absolutely dominated the Warhawk lineup.
The Pineville native tossed five frames allowing just two hits and an unearned run.
The first inning got off to a slow start as Kristen Miles, who reached on an infield single with one out, stood at first with two outs in the inning. That’s when LA Tech broke out the big sticks.
