Championships are a thrilling thing for any collegiate sports program.
World Championships are that much better.
That’s why Louisiana Tech University’s track and field team and sprinter Jaquvis Hart are on top of the world right now after Hart shattered a championship record and won gold in the 400m (T47) finals at the International Paralympic Committee World Championships Friday at Suhaim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha, Qatar.
Congratulations to Grambling State University for making what will hopefully be the right move in one of the most important hires ever for the recently beleaguered parish college.
After the most tumultuous football season the school has ever seen, with three different men serving as head coach from the first game to last, the school looked to one of its own to try and restore the luster of the once shining beacon of college football.
If it’s nearing the end of February, it must mean Lincoln Parish has several contributions in the annual Louisiana High School Athletic Association state basketball playoffs.
And sure enough, our area is well represented again to advance in postseason competition and maybe even reach the championship rounds that are going to be staged within a long 3-point field goal of Ruston (at Ewing Coliseum in Monroe, March 6-9).
The Ruston TEA Party is inviting local legislators to speak about their roles in Louisiana government as well as about recently passed bills during the spring session that will directly or indirectly affect the citizens of Lincoln Parish.
