The Cougars have a strong nucleus returning from last year’s 9-2 squad which finished among the top 10 teams in the Louisiana Sports Writers Association poll last year.

Dubach eyes scenic byway designation

The National Scenic Byways Program is a community-based program administered through the Federal Highway Administration to recognize, protect, and promote America’s most outstanding roads.
Through the Louisiana Department of Transportation, communities can apply for designation as a State or National Scenic Byway and receive funding from the administration.

“A lot of publicity goes along with this,” she said.
