Recently graduated senior Brusly Lady Panther Akiya Thymes traveled to Louisiana College’s Coca-Cola Field this past weekend to participate in the Louisiana High School Coaches Association’s All-Star Softball weekend.
Many high school football programs took off this week for a cool-off period between spring drills and the start of summer vacation.
Port Allen is not one of them. The Pelicans headed back to work the day after Memorial Day for the start of what promises to be a busy summer.
Brusly High School has hired Kirby Loupe as the new head coach of the boys basketball team.
It shouldn’t take long for Loupe to feel home, since he will basically already be home.
Just five years ago, Loupe was the head basketball coach at Port Allen High, winning a total of 103 games in his four years as head coach. He led the Pelicans to the Class 3A semifinals in 2008 and the quarterfinals in 2009.
