Outright champions: Abbeville Lady Wildcats declared district champs

The Abbeville Lady Wildcats and the Kaplan Lady Pirates made plans to meet Saturday night to settle who will be declared the outright District 6-3A champs. The plans were made Friday morning before their final regular-season game was played
Their thought was that Kaplan was going to beat Crowley and Abbeville would handle David Thibodaux High, and both teams would finish 8-2 in the district; the Saturday game would’ve broken the tie.
But, like in life, athletics does not go as planned.
