So I'll get a head start this week. I'm planning to see Minden against Parkway at Parkway High School on Friday. It's the second week of District 1-4A play, and both teams are unbeaten. The winner sets itself up as the top competition to Captain Shreve, which plays on Thursday against Northwood.
If you're further east, go check out Bastrop at Ruston. The Bearcats are coming on, and the Rams should tell us whether Ruston is ready to challenge for the 1-5A title. A little north? Haynesville at Plain Dealing. The Tors started slowly but opened up 1-1A play with a win, while the Lions started well but lost their 1-1A opener.
