Needra Hansen sat in the recliner, her glasses on but her eyes closed, a throw pulled up close to her chin. A sliver of bright sunlight slipped between the curtains and bathed the side of her face. A college basketball game played out on a big screen TV.
“Mrs. Hansen, you have a visitor,” the attendant said to her gently. Mrs. Hansen opened her eyes and inspected the intruder carefully before a smile came to her face. “Well, hello,” she said.

Poyen only scored one run in the first inning, as Kaylei Hopkins got an RBI on a hard-hit single that brought in Kindi Puckett, who had reached base on a walk.
After coming off of an incredible performance against Jessieville, the Poyen Lady Indians continued their domination on the softball field, beating Maumelle Charter in a blowout: 15-0. The game was called at the end of the third inning. The first inning was completely lopsided as Poyen scored 11 runs. With the bases loaded, Kyla Puckett approached the plate.
