Scores show help needed for schools

For the second year in a row, Lincoln Parish School System ranked in the Top 10 districts based on percentage of schools meeting their school performance growth targets.
On a less happy note, when letter grades were passed out, the parish as a whole received a C, and no parish public schools received an A, though Ruston High School was only two tenths of a point away from the minimum A score.
The school system overall did improve by 1.5 points, though the ranking in the state slipped down two spots from No. 21 in 2009-10 to No. 23 — tied with Winn Parish — for the 2010-11 school year.

Techsters still winless in California

in

SAN JOSE, Calif. — After going to halftime scoreless, the Louisiana Tech soccer team surrendered two second half goals to fall to reigning regular season conference champion San Jose State 2-0 Sunday afternoon at Spartan Stadium.
“To go on the road and dominate the reigning WAC champions in the manner we did was awesome,” said head coach Kevin Sherry. “We just lacked a striker to finish our opportunities, which is a problem we have had since preseason. I feel sorry for the team because they gave so much for the cause.”
