It was going to be a controlled scrimmage between JHHS and Homer, two projected district championship contenders in Class 2A and Booker T. Washington, an up-and-coming Class 4A team from Shreveport. Mother Nature won. The round-robin competition that was supposed to be played this past Friday night in Homer got called off at the last minute as thunderstorms, heavily laden with lightening, rumbled through north Louisiana.
“Naturally we are disappointed that we didn’t get to play,” said JHHS head coach Terrance Blankenship. “We were looking forward to seeing how our guys would perform following our spring practices.”
The Tigers, who will once again compete in district 1-2A in 2021, will open summer practices on June 7th and go to Northwestern State University for a 7 on 7 competition on June 14th. The fall season begins on August 28th at the “Bayou Jamb” in Monroe where JHHS will face St. Frederick’s followed by the regular season opener at traditional rival Winnfield.
