Henderson, Kenny.jpg

At the Louisiana High School Athletic Association’s (LHSAA) annual convention in January 2010, the member schools’ principals decided to make changes to the high school state basketball championship tournaments. In previous years, the girls’ and boys’ teams played their semi-final games during different weeks and at various locations.
This year, the committee wants to decrease travel time and make the tournaments more convenient for both teams and fans. In 2012, the semifinals will take place at three different regional sites; the finals will be held at one location. Semi-finals are scheduled to be played in Monroe on the University of Louisiana-Monroe campus, in Hammond on the Southeastern Louisiana University campus and in Lake Charles at the Civic Center.

At 13 years old, I could tell you anything you’d possibly want to know about approximately 10 of the most popular movie/television stars of the day, as long as that information could be found on even the obscurest website on the Internet.
