Bearcats crack state’s Top 10

Off to a 3-0 start after Friday night’s 41-3 romp past Captain Shreve, Ruston High was announced Tuesday as the No. 10 ranked team for the highest classification in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association.

Cedar Creek High remained at No. 11 in Class 1A following last weekend’s 35-14 road win against North Caddo.

The needs are great, and Rolling Hills is looking to recruit some new volunteers. If you can, dedicate a week or two to their mission of helping to feed storm victims. Those who can’t take time off to travel to south Louisiana can still contribute to the nonprofit organization.

Ministry rolls forward with Hurricane Ike recovery efforts

A group of 29 Rolling Hills volunteers rotated out of the Sulphur area Thursday, Abernathy said.
