Jonesboro-Hodge Elementary School will field a basketball team for the first time ever. An ambitious schedule of eight games against mainly schools in Lincoln Parish will be played throughout January and February, including four home games that will be played at Jonesboro-Hodge High School.
The season will cumulate with an Elementary Championship tournament that will be played in Ruston on March 4th. The team will be coached by Assistant Principal Jacob Barron, who before moving into administration at J-HES coached both boy’s and girls’ varsity basketball at Quitman High School.
“We are very excited about our upcoming season and want to thank Hodge Bank & Trust, Mitchell’s Pharmacy, and Willy T’s for their sponsorship that allowed us to purchase our uniforms,” said Barron. “We would also like to thank JHHS Principal (Chevonda) Leonard, Coach (Kris) Cash, and Coach (Allen) Tew for allowing us to use their facilities.”
