The COVID-shortened football season will begin Oct. 2 for Avoyelles Parish's three football-playing high schools.
School starts -- fingers crossed -- in three weeks. For a select group of Avoyelles Parish high school students, their studies and lessons began a few weeks ago.
Several of the parish's baseball and softball teams were just putting things together when the season was cut short by an emergency order to stop the spread of COVID-19.
It doesn't take Nostradamus to predict the future of girls high school basketball in AvoyellesParish.
This past week was the last baseball/softball action at least until mid-April, due to high schools being closed and sporting events cancelled until April 13.
