Bolton served as an assistant for the past three seasons at Benton. She played her high school basketball at Benton. 

"I plan to really continue the success we've had, you know, with the help of Brett but also just with an insane amount of work. Like I said I don't know, I don't have a lot of words it's all come fast but I'm just very thankful for what this opportunity is," Bolton said.

The Lady Cardinals return plenty of girls from last year's team. Their season ended with a sectional loss to Kearney High School.

Summer-like weather has taken hold and will stick around for the next several days. For tonight, an isolated shower or storm is possible early on but we should dry out overnight. Lows will be mild in the upper 60s.
