Summer Driver and Madison Bowyer have spent the summer playing Basketball for the Arkansas Lady Blazers. The Arkansas Blazers are an Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) team based out of Bentonville Arkansas. The girls went through two rounds of try outs to reach the top 10 elite players to make the 2021 team. The 2021 Blazers played teams from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri in tournaments throughout the Midwest during the season. These were highly competitive tournament teams. The girls were coached by Sheila (Frost) Anderson a two time national championship player from University of Tennessee under Coach Pat Summitt.
