RHS mission: Bouncing back
It not only marked Ruston’s first loss of the overall and District 1-5A campaign, but also forced a complete drop out of the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 5-A top 10 poll.

“I think we learned a lesson,” Laird said. “Our players are hurt and embarrassed over what happened and they’re ready to play.”
Now, he’s also hoping it can lead straight to a win at James Stadium on Friday night when league opponent Shreveport Huntington High comes in for a 7 p.m. meeting.
