2010 Sonic Air Raid Preview

Over the last few years, the Sonic Air Raid in Searcy (hosted at Harding Academy) as been the unofficial kick-off to the 7-on-7 season.  In fact, last year we named this tournament (the state's 3rd largest) the first leg of the Arkansas 7-on-7 Triple Crown. The Shootout of the South and Vype Select tournaments complete the state's triple crown competition.

Once again, this one day tournament on June 5 boasts a very impressive field.  The field is divided into 4 sections for Division or Pool Play.  The top 2 teams from each pool advance to the Land O' Frost Championship double elimination bracket.  The lower 2 teams from each division will participate in the Sonic Consolation double elimination bracket.

Here are the divisions for this Saturday:
  • Division A
    • Conway
    • Pulaski Academy Blue
    • Pine Bluff
    • Searcy
  • Division B
    • Greenbriar
    • Lake Hamilton
    • Pulaski Academy Gold
    • Watson Chapel
  • Division C
    • Bald Knob
    • Greene County Tech
    • Harding Academy
    • Lonoke
  • Division D
    • Conway Christian
    • Des Arc
    • Dewitt
    • Rose Bud
We look for a very competitive day of 7-on-7 football in Searcy with division games starting  at 10 am.  The double elimination bracket play will begin at 1:30 pm.  The bracket championship games are scheduled for 5:15 pm (with an "If Necessary" game at 6 pm).  We hope that you get a chance to take in the action on Saturday.


  1. Does this mean that PA is playing both a varsity and a JV team in the tourney?


  2. They entered as two separate "varsity" teams, but have suffered several injuries during spring, so they will probably split up as varsity and JV.
