Upon further review, it was a win for Class 1A False River Academy last Friday night.
MaxPreps and various media outlets listed North Central as a 40-26 winner over False River in the District 5-1A game played at NCHS in Lebeau.
But in reality it was an 18-12 victory for the Gators.
“We’re not exactly sure what happened there other than it (the score) was input wrong,” False River Principal Melanie Ezell said. “We were told by the LHSAA that the schools have to change it, and we’re working on that.”
The victory was the first for interim coach Drew Leonard, who is also set to be the school’s baseball coach. The previous coach, Devyn Baker, remains at the school as a teacher. Ezell declined comment on the change, calling it a “personnel issue.”
False River (3-4, 1-1) travels to Basile (6-1, 2-0) Friday night for its next District 5-1A game.

Last fall Pendarvis placed 13th in the 500 freestyle at the Division I state meet. He was sixth in the 200 individual medley and seventh in the 500 freestyle at the Capital City Swim League Championships last fall.
