New territory for Leesville
The Leesville high school football team are the new kids at the table when it comes to the makeup of the Class 4A semifinals. Both Neville and Edna Karr have won state championships within the last five years, while the Wampus Cats' opponent this Friday, Warren Easton, recently made it the state finals.
The Wampus Cats meanwhile haven't been in this position since 1995, but head coach Robert Causey hopes that this season's success is the start of a program shift in Vernon Parish. The #6 Wampus Cats will face #2 Warren Easton this Friday in New Orleans. Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
