RHS earns national 7-on-7 berth
Ruston had a 7-0 record going into the title game against the Shreveport-based power and was 4-0 during “pool” competition; Evangel took the championship with a 20-10 victory.
Initially, head coach Billy Laird wasn’t sure if he was going to have the Bearcats participate in the national event, but then decided on Monday to do so.
“Our players have worked very hard all summer, have done a good job and they are deserving to be a part of the national meet,” he said Monday morning. “This is a reward for their hard work.”
Laird plans to take approximately 25 players to the tournament.
