Those looking for a good basketball game between in-parish rivals Port Allen and Brusly weren’t disappointed as the two teams served fans a nail-biter last Tuesday in the Brusly High gym.
Port Allen closed the week with a district win over Baker, but bigger tests loom for the Pelicans.
The next week should say plenty about the direction of Port Allen basketball, and the rest of District 7-3A for that matter.
The Pels head into the week 14-3 and unbeaten in district action.
“We’re actually one game better than we were on our record from last year at this time,” head coach Brandon Ricard said. “I also think we’re playing better at this point than we were at this time last season.”
Holy Family 5/6th grade cheerleading squad attended the UCA cheer camp over the summer at St. George and were invited to perform at the Buffalo Wild Wing Citrus Bowl Pregame show in Orlando, FL on January 1, 2015. They were invited for receiving all Superior ribbons at camp. They were one of very few Junior High squads that were invited. Not all of the girls were able to attend the trip to Orlando. Along with this high invitation honor, they also won the coveted UCA Spirit Award “The Banana” on the first day of cheer camp, which is the highest award at camp for outstanding school spirit, teamwork, and best representation of a cheerleading squad. On the second day of camp Holy Family won “The Banana” again and was able to take it home for the school trophy case. Along with this honorable award, this squad also received a High SPIRIT trophy for their efforts during the entire camp.
The girls were able to enjoy several days at Disneyworld as part of their trip. They made many new friends and many lifetime memories!
