RHS great for education, too

in

The author of the editorial “Schools’ Scores Show Growth,” featured in Sunday’s edition of The Ruston Daily Leader is certainly correct in their assertion that both “Choudrant and Simsboro appear to be a great place (to get) an education.” Choudrant High School, with its School Performance Score (based on the 2012 formula) of 136.4 should certainly be proud. Simsboro also made remarkable gains, achieving a 110.5. CHS and SHS are both excellent schools with great administration and competent teachers, and the proof lies in their gains and achievements.

With November here we’re on the brink of the holiday season. However, the severe sugar overload we’re witnessing now reminds us that we just wrapped up one of the most highly anticipated holidays for kids of all ages.
Yes, Halloween has come and gone. No doubt the confection companies are still running totals to see whose sugary treats topped this year’s list. We all have favorites. Some go for chocolate, then there’s the fruit variety, some lean toward mint, others want nuts and on and on.

They showed equipment and clothing they use and allowed the students to ask questions.

Bearcats’ offense explodes

Ruston roars to 61-13 district win on road at Alexandria
090113 RHS Wright TD catch C.jpg

It’s no secret that the Ruston Bearcats offense has struggled at times this season.
But apparently the Bearcats opened a can of spinach before Friday’s game at Alexandria High School as the defense was as strong as ever and the RHS offense was anything but anemic as they roared to a 61-13 District 2-5A win over the Trojans.
Ruston scored 1:15 into the game and never looked back to move to 6-3 overall and 2-2 in district play.
The Bearcats rolled up 615 yards of offense while holding ASH to 117 yards, as RHS punted only twice in the contest.

110313 Creek Perry run C.jpg

Wide receiver Chase Murphy is one of the hardest working players on the Cedar Creek Cougars’ football team head coach Ben Haddox said.
Early in the second quarter in Friday’s game, a play was called to throw Murphy the ball for a 16-yard touchdown.
It was his only touchdown for the senior in his final Homecoming football game of his four year Cedar Creek career
“Mark (Van) threw a great pass and I just jumped up and caught it,” Murphy said. “It was exciting.”
The Cougars showed why they are one of the best teams in 1A Louisiana football, beating the Redskins of Ringgold, 49-0.

The Black team scored multiple runs in three different innings to defeat Gray, 6-1, Saturday and force a Fall World Series Game 7.
That game is scheduled for 1 p.m. today afternoon.
Black led off the scoring in the top of the fourth after Taylor Nichols reached base on an error, followed by a two-run home run by senior Tyler Ervine over the left field fence for a 2-0 Black lead. Another fielding error by Gray in the fifth led to two additional runs scored for the Black team for a four-run lead.

Former Ferriday product remembered for competitive spirit

Johnson, Walter.jpg

(Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of five features on the Class of 2013 that will be inducted into the Louisiana Tech Athletics Hall of Fame at 10 a.m. Saturday in the Waggonner Room of the Thomas Assembly Center. The public is invited.)
Those who know Walter Johnson best and were most closely associated with his football career are not surprised when the Louisiana Tech two-time all-America defensive star modestly says, “I never thought about making a Hall of Fame, I just wanted to play football.”
