Talk about Choudrant High’s outstanding tradition in athletics and, more times than not, the Aggies’ super baseball program earns a quick and admiring mention.
And it won’t be long before Tony Antley’s Boys of the Spring get in gear and make their proverbial march to postseason play.
But right now, the buzz around Aggie Country is boys’ basketball and for a good reason.
They’re simply one of the best teams in the Class B ranks of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association.

Waldon: Passing of a fellow angler

in

In this book, Grizzard, born with a heart condition, wrote about his three open heart surgeries to replace a faulty mitral valve.
