Lady Tigers close out non-district play with two wins

The LaSalle Lady Tigers have closed out non-district play with wins over Calvin and Georgetown. The Tuesday night Calvin game was also the Lady Tiger’s Senior recognition night.

This night is usually held on the season’s last home game, but with all the uncertain-ty surrounding sports it was best to have it when we could. The three seniors honored that night were Bree Hester, Kylee Hillestad, and Stormy Street. These three girls have been a part of the Lady Tiger basketball team for 4 years.

It has been an honor watching them grow into the incredible student-athletes that they have become. They will be missed on the court next season as they have been starters for the last three years.

Anna Kate, high school senior, learns hunting lessons well

Anna Kate, high school senior, learns hunting lessons well

This is a busy time of year for me with my assignment from LA Sportsman magazine to interview successful hunters and write stories about how they took trophy bucks. There has been little time to cover other matters regarding the outdoors as long as deer season is going on.

I ran across one story, though, that temporarily placed Louisiana’s big bucks and how they were taken on the back burner for a bit.

This is a deer story but it reached its peak, not in Louisiana but in Kansas. The subject of this story is a 17 year high school senior at Cedar Creek school in Ruston. The subject happens o be a young lady. Anna Kate Scriber, daughter of Ruston painting contractor and police juror, Glenn Scriber.

Jordan downs his biggest buck ever in Catahoula Parish

Twenty-eight year old Tyler Jordan works with Realtree, one of the world’s best known manufacturers of camouflage, a company started by his dad, Bill Jordan more than three decades ago.

Tyler works in marketing and video production for the company and has had the opportunity to deer hunt all over the country in states known for the production of big bucks. He has chased big bucks in states such as Montana, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Kansas, Iowa and Illinois and has taken some real trophies. Tyler had to come to Louisiana, however, to take his personal best buck.

‘If you had told me I’d get my biggest and highest scoring buck in Louisiana or any state in the deep south, I’d never have believed it,” said Jordan.
