For a few minutes Monday night, the Ruston Bearcats were fading as fast as the temperatures outside.
But Ruston roared back in the waning seconds as the Bearcats pulled away for a 71-63 win in District 2-5A action at the RHS gym.
The game was orginally scheduled for tonight but was moved up to be played in advance of potential icy weather.
Ruston (17-8 overall, 5-1 in District 2-5A) took control early and maintained a solid advantage for much of the contest, leading by 11 points with 3:00 remaining.
That’s when the Bearcats learned just how fast a team can lose control of a game.

Each year Americans spend $646 billion on outdoor recreation. That sounds like a lot of money, but when you think of all the people you know who engage in hunting, fishing, birding, wildlife viewing, camping, hiking and canoeing, the numbers become more believable.

As the winter Olympics are in progress, watching these athletes perform reminds me of the endless devotion they possess in order to make the road to Sochi a possibility.
The amount of effort that has been set aside perfecting their skills and the time they have devoted to their sport is immeasurable.
Each of these athletes has sacrificed a myriad of things in their lives in order to be able to participate at an Olympic level, which includes time, money, friends, social lives and other opportunities that they had to put on the back burner for their sport.
