“ It was a fantastic night at Louisa Middle School for our players, cheerleaders, coaches, teachers, administrators, parents, and community! It’s been a blessing to coach all 31 of these young men. I want to thank everyone that made 8th Grade Night so special for our school and community. I also want to brag on my coaching staff Blake Prince and Josh Thompson, they put in a ton of work that goes unnoticed. Our season is not finished though. We have three big games at McKell Thursday then our OVC Tournament starts!”
“ Big shout-out to our 8th graders for taking care of business on their last home game! We tell our players to be happy for someone else’s success. I believe everyone in the gym could feel that energy from our players tonight. It was a special night, full of smiling faces.“
