The 2014-2015 Brusly Middle School Cheerleaders won “Best-Overall Cheer Squad” during the National Cheerleading Association Summer Camp hosted by St Aloysius Catholic School.
Brusly High standout softball player Carli Jo LeBlanc was in a car accident Monday night, July 28.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the West Side Journal’s final deadline before print, LeBlanc was in the Intensive Care Unit at a Baton Rouge hospital following injuries suffered in the crash.
LeBlanc was named a first teamer for Division 3, after her stellar 2014 season as the Lady Panthers’ outstanding pitcher. As a junior in 2013, LeBlanc led the Lady Panthers pitching squad with a 26-1 record and was named a pre-season all state first-teamer.
Friends and family are soliciting prayers for Carli Jo’s full recovery.
It’s back to the grind for the Brusly High football team.
Players and coaches leave around 11 a.m. today (Thursday) for Kings Arrow Ranch in Lumberton, Miss., for a series of practice sessions that will continue into November – or possibly December – as the Panthers kick off their 2014 season.
The training camp, which runs through Saturday, will cover every aspect of the game in hopes that the team will reach the playoffs and possibly get the trip to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the 3A non-select championship Dec. 12.
It marks the second consecutive year Brusly travels to the vast surroundings at Kings Arrow Ranch, but the Panthers will not be alone at the camp. Several other schools will converge at the camp near Hattiesburg for similar sessions - including Live Oak, West St. John and Plaquemine.
