LAKE CHARLES – McNeese men’s basketball had quite the experience last week in the Bahamas where the Cowboys faced off against three of the island’s professional teams at the BBF Summer of Thunder event.

Andre LeBlanc wins VC’s 2019 Todd LaPorte Award

Vermilion Catholic graduate Todd LaPorte was the type of person who helped his community and school but did it behind the scene and did not let everyone know how or what he was contributing.
At the age of 53, Laporte passed away in March of 2019.
As way to keep his memory going, the LaPorte family and Vermilion Catholic family wanted to do something special.
Vermilion Catholic found a way to keep LaPorte’s legacy alive by naming a football award in his honor. Before the season begins, the head football coach will name one athlete who lives the way LaPorte did.

Improving Each Year: Abbeville volleyball team eager to build on last year’s success

When a volleyball team ends the season with a 9-14 overall record, some would argue it was a terrible year. For the Abbeville Lady Wildcats Volleyball Team, nine wins is a great season. The Lady Wildcats won nine matches last year which is twice as many wins as the year before. 
With the 2019 season fast approaching, the Lady Wildcats plan to build on those wins with the help of eight seniors. 
AHS Volleyball head coach Ashley Boudreaux is looking forward to this season.
