1-5A shows its strength

Imagine my surprise when I approached the losing H.L. Boureois coach after his team lost to the Airline girls on Monday night. He and his team have driven almost through the night to get to a hotel room, and he still gave credit to the Lady Vikings for being an excellent team. Not only was it refreshing, but it was an admission of the strength of District 1-5A girls basketball.
So was last night, when Airline went on the road and won a quarterfinal game by 25 points. Back in Shreveport, Southwood survived a struggle against Natchitoches Central to advance to the Sweet 16 as well.
Airline has a very tough foe in Denham Springs, which has already knocked off Ruston and West Monroe, but don't be surprised if the Vikings and Cowboys meet again on Saturday night.
