Jena Giants looking to defend 3-3A district title

Last season saw the Jena Giants win the district 3-3A title and win their first round playoff game before seeing their season come to an end in the second round of the state playoffs.

With the Giants returning most of their starters from last year’s team, the Giants look to be the favorites to defend their district title this season. The Giants have a tough schedule this year as they look to prepare themselves for the playoffs.

The Giants have gotten off to a good start as they have started with 4 wins with two of them over 4A schools. The Giants defeated Buckeye 8-5 and defeated Grant 5-2.

Tips to “Keep the Beat” going shared by BC/BS

February is American Heart Month, and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana is promoting awareness of heart disease and how Louisianians can delay or prevent it.

“Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States,” said Dr. Vindell Washington, Blue Cross executive vice president and chief medical officer.

“While people 65 and older tend to be at a higher risk, heart health is something to be mindful of at any age.”

With rising rates of obesity and high blood pressure nationwide, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting increasing cases of heart disease among younger people.

Jena Giants fight hard to the end but come up short

The Jena Giants earned the #20 seed in the class 3A state playoffs after finishing the season with a 17-11 record and 6-4 in district, which was good enough for 2nd place in district.

The Giants came into this season looking for a playoff win as the last two years have seen the Giants earn home playoff games for the 1st round but have come up short in both games. This year the Giants would have to go on the road to take on the #13 Northwest Raiders of Opelousas.

The Giants had a lot of confidence coming into the game as they brought a veteran roster, which included mostly juniors and seniors into the game.

Lady Tigers fall to White Castle

After the tremendous amount of time spent on the bus for the trip to White Castle, the Lady Tigers were able to get in the gym and shake off the nerves for this first round of state playoff game.

The Lady Tigers were ranked #20 and the Lady Bulldogs of White Castle were ranked #13 for this Class 1A playoff game.

The game started with White Castle hitting four 3-pointers before the Lady Tigers could find an answer for them. The Lady Tigers settled in and the game became manageable for the remainder of the first quarter.

The Lady Tigers would be able to keep the game within single digit leads for the beginning of the second quarter, but the last two minutes would prove costly for the Lady Tigers as the Lady Bulldogs were able to go on a 12-0 run to close out the first half.
