The North Central Louisiana division of the Fishers of Men launched into their 10th anniversary season with the inaugural tournament held on Feb. 13 on Caney Lake in Chatham.
There were 37 teams from throughout the region gathered at Brown’s Landing for the first of five tournaments in which anglers will vie for a bid to the organization’s annual district and national championships.
Though temperatures were in the 70s in the days prior to the event, a cold front pushed through the area, dropping the mercury to near 40 degrees as daylight broke and the field of anglers blasted off.
HOUSTON — Louisiana Tech sophomore Victor Lange fired a 1-under-par 71 on the final day of the Bayou City Collegiate Championship Sunday as he finished tied for second and was named to the Bayou City All-Tournament Team.
A sophomore, Lange was the only golfer on the All-Tournament team not to play for co-host Houston or Texas.
“This was a good tournament,” Lange said.
“The weather was perfect, the course was great and I really couldn’t have asked for a better venue. It is one of my favorite courses I have played on.”

snowmobile riding, I assumed I’d act polite and appear interested through the other events on the agenda that Geiger and Associates public relations firm had put together for the writers. I signed on mainly because of the outdoors stuff I’d get to do and accepted the fact I’d figuratively have to endure the commercials to get to the good stuff.
BATON ROUGE — When Ruston’s previously gone over the late-game situations in practice guard Tykeem Anderson is seldom the hero in waiting.
That all changed with the Bearcats’ season hanging in the balance.
Anderson drove nearly the length of the floor for a driving layup with 3.7 seconds left, lifting No. 21 Ruston to a 42-41 upset Friday of No. 12 Catholic High-Baton Rouge in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs.
