RHS, Mandeville collide on Friday
The Bearcats (7-3, 5-1) will be one of two entries out of District 1-5A to reach postseason play, the other being No. 1 ranked West Monroe (9-0), who will play host to West Jefferson (4-6) on Friday night.
Ruston is seeded No. 15, Mandeville No. 22 in the power ratings that are used to determine who makes it into a “Second Season.”
“Wherever you’re seeded, you’ve got to play because everybody at this point of the season is good,” Laird said. “I like where we are in the playoffs. I like the bracket we’re in. Now, we just have to go out and play and get the job done.
