Parish had football fever in ’08
Ruston High, Cedar Creek and Grambling High were among the participants in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association state playoffs. It was the first time in seven years that all of the parish schools enjoyed such a deep march into a season.
Softball and baseball excelled, too.
Ruston’s youth baseball leagues had their best year ever and both city high schools participating in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association state softball tournament.
The Lady Techsters’ softball team won the Western Athletic Conference postseason tournament and participated in the NCAA playoffs.
