Lady Hornets still undefeated

Despite a horrendous pre-district schedule, the Rayville Lady Hornets (10-9) captured a few prize pelts for their belts in wins over Wossman, Carroll, Neville and a split with the 5A powerhouse Ouachita. 

It served them well, for they have breezed through six district games by an average difference of 33 points a game.  And this is without two stalwart starters Shamari Franklin and Emonni Baker who were injured in the win over Ouachita on Dec. 23. So far they have not returned.

Hornets headed to state tourney

Two more games, two more wins.  

Mangham 102-48. Delhi Charter 89-53.

For the second consecutive seasons, the Hornets played havoc in district winning on the average by about 40 points a game.  Mangham played tough in the first quarter trailing by only one 20-19 on the strength of Harrison’s three threes (he had five in the game) only to be down 48-30 at the half.

RHS boys continue proving themselves

The number two team in the district came into Rayville seeking revenge for a loss in their gym earlier this season.  

They didn’t get it from the number one seed in Louisiana. It didn’t take long to determine that they wouldn’t as the Hornets raced out to a 30-14 lead in the first quarter on the way to a 109-69 Hornet win.

Their percentage wasn’t particularly good but seven different Hornets hit a three. Nashaun Ellis had four, Rashad Naylor three, Mylik Wilson two, JaMichael Wilson, Jalen Qualls, Christopher Jones and Zyquarcus Cowart all had one.

Lady Hornets top Beekman

After another breeze at Beekman Charter (64-19) the Lady Hornets returned home to host probably the last threat to their undefeated district season by the number four ranked Ferriday Bulldogs. 

Because of a tough predistrict schedule, the Lady Hornets have only  garnered a thirteenth position even though they beat the Lady Dogs by five points in Ferriday.

Not so close this time as the Lady Hornets jumped out to a 23-9 first quarter score and they increased the lead by 21 at the half, 39-18.  

Hornets wow Riverside

The Rayville  High  School Hornets have established themselves as the greatest basketball team to ever play for Rayville High with their signature win over undefeated Riverside Academy of Reserve. 

Riverside, a select school, was designated as he number one team in Louisiana in all classifications. Would you believe the Hornets won 82-64? It seems that the lack of competition in district makes no difference. They can rise to the occasion when the situation demands.
