Bearcats’ balance big key to success

The two top 10 state ranked clubs (RHS is No. 6, East Ascension is No. 3) will collide in a 7 p.m. showdown at the Bearcats’ gymnasium, with a trip to next week’s “Top 28” state tournament on the line; tickets are $5 and can be purchased by contacting the RHS office at 255-0807.
Brown, who had scored 31 points in a 73-54 first round victory against Lake Charles Barbe High, ended up with 11 against St. Paul’s and had only four by halftime.

Grambling steps out with ‘Walk’
