The Richland Parish Chamber of Commerce hosted a community event April 11 in the gymnasium at Delhi High School to celebrate the Delhi Girls Basketball State Championship and help raise money for their championship rings. 

“The support from the community and town leaders in Delhi was overwhelming. We thought we would pass flyers out to help spread the word about the event. Everyone we spoke to already had plans to attend. Mayor Washington said he had already been the bank and was ready to donate,” says Richland Chamber Board Member Chelsea Higginbotham.

Longino signs to play at Lakeland University

Delhi Charter School’s Desmond Longino signed to play basketball at Lakeland University in Plymouth, Wisc.

Longino has played every position at DCS since he began playing varsity as a seventh grader. 

He will end his career at DCS as the all time leader in games played, points scored, playoff wins and a host of other records. He was on the first team to win a playoff game. Longino has been a big part of changing the way DCS basketball is viewed in the area and will be missed tremendously.
