Parish champions !!!

BASILE – Not all championship games turn out to be barn burners. A lot of times the hype does not live up to the contest itself.

Valiant effort

OAK GROVE – Despite a valiant effort, the Basile Bearcats could not overcome the size, speed and numbers of the Oak Grove Tigers, as they fell 34-6 here Friday night in the Class 1A quarterfinals.
