Super Region Champions: North Vermilion Gets It Done

Good things come to those who wait.
The 10-year-old North Vermilion All-Stars have waited three years for this to happen.
Early Friday morning, at around 12:02 a.m., the North Vermilion All-Stars were celebrating their 17-14 victory over SLYSI of Lafayette. The game began Thursday at about 9 p.m. and ended just after midnight.
With the win, they have qualified to play in Deer Park, Texas for the next round. The tournament begins on July 25.
Last year, with most of the same boys, the club finished third in the same tourney.

Abbeville track/field records completed

No one ever put it down on paper, until this track season at Abbeville High School.
Abbeville High graduate and head track coach Ivy Landry began researching track and field records for Abbeville High School.
Finally, with a combination of former track coaches, Ossie Blaize, Erik Lege, Brent Indest, John Prestridge and current track coach, Ivy Landry, a record book was created. Also, helping were Brandon Mitchell, Chad Brown and Russell Betts.
The AHS records go as a far back as 1969 to as recent as 2018.
