SULPHUR — Championship game play is nothing new for Choudrant High School.
After all, the Aggies have played in eight state championship games over the past 21 years.

In 27 seasons under coach Tony Antley, who doubles as principal at CHS, the Aggies won state titles in 1996, 2002, 2005 and now 2017 while earning runner-up honors in 1990, 2006, 2010 and 2011.

While time may help heal wounds, scars always remain.
