The hard work and effort put forth by West Baton Rouge’s volleyball and football athletes has paid off and earned three of the four fall teams a spot in the playoffs.
Both Port Allen and Brusly’s volleyball teams qualified for playoffs as did Brusly’s football team.
For the first time in the past five years, Port Allen’s football team did not make it to the playoffs.
“This won’t happen to us next year, I can promise you that,” said Coach Blanchard. “Things are going to change for the better.”
After a loss to St. Thomas Aquinas Thursday in the first round, Port Allen’s volleyball team is finished with playoffs.
Brusly’s volleyball team had a bye week in the first round of playoffs, but lost to Parkview Baptist Monday night, ending their winning streak and their chance for advancement in a heartbreakingly close game.
The Panther football team will play their first playoff game this Friday at 7 p.m. in Kentwood against Jewel M. Sumner. The Cowboys have had an overall record of 8-2 and a 3-2 district record.
“They’re a good team, but I expect our kids will perform well,” said Brusly’s Coach Erik Willis. “I really believe they will.”
