“Second Season” begins for area prep teams

It is called the “second season” and if you ask any coach they will tell you it is the most important season of all and winning it is one of the main goals of their team. Beginning this coming Tuesday, every local area team and virtually the entire state, starts competing against teams in their respective districts. 

There was a time in Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) when winning district was the only way a team could compete for a state title. Even after second place and even third place teams were allowed in expanded playoff brackets, winning the district title assured a school of a top seeding. Now  in the day of “power points”  determining seedings and virtually every team makes the playoffs  in the overall scheme of things winning district is not as vital as it used to be but claiming the title is still special. 

There is not a player or coach who ever graced the hardwoods that doesn’t remember clinching a district title.  The may not remember the score or even who they played against but they will always remember being the district champion.

It is also something that is talked about again and again years and decades later by old timers who remind all the young whippersnappers that when they played they were district champs. Being a district champion stays with you forever.  

In an effort to provide Jackson Parish Journal readers the best prep information that can be found district standings for each of area schools (bold print) will be provided each week throughout the rest of the season. Official LHSAA Class or Division rankings as well as the upcoming schedule for each for the week of January 20-26 is shown as well. District games are denoted with a (D). Tuesday, January 19th, games are not included due to press time requirements.
