Leader photo by O. K. DAVIS Ruston High’s Jerry Melton (20) makes a pass against H.L. Bourgeois defender Marlin Bonvillion (13) during a bi-district Class 5A state playoff game Tuesday night. Melton poured in 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the Bearcats’ 77-47 victory.

Jerry Melton was “on” for Ruston High School Tuesday night and at the right time.
