Scrimmage time, site changed The site and date of De Queen's pre-season football scrimmages have been changed.
The Leopards' scrimmages with Bauxite will now be held at Benton High School. The junior high teams will take the field at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 22, followed by the senior high teams at 7 p.m.
The move was made because a week of wet weather has left the playing surface at Leopard Stadium a quaqmire. Bauxite's field is not usuable because of ongoing construction, so Bauxite will host the scrimmages at neighboring Benton High.
