DCS tracks teams off to strong start in 2018

The DCS Track teams are off to a strong start this season with two meets under their belt.

The track teams competed in the T ri State D&H Relays March 3 and Cedar Creek March 8.

The DCS girls brought home the Cougar Relay  championship with a number of first place medals and other valuable scorers. 

In the field events: Ashari Jones took first place discus and second shot put while Megan Holloway took second place in long jump and third in triple jump.

RHS girls ready for playoffs

For the girls the playoffs have started not so much with a bang as with a whimper.  

The seventh seeded Lady Hornets played host to Beekman Charter, a district foe that Rayville vanquished  easily in two district games and seeded 26. You would not have known it by the play in the first quarter.  The girls came out tight and suffered through the worst first quarter of the year with eight only points.

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.
