Caddo Parish schools get reprieve, will not receive playoff bans _lowres


A sportsmanship hearing for Bogalusa High will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the LHSAA office in Baton Rouge.

The hearing is a result of a fight during Bogalusa’s Class 4A quarterfinal playoff game against Amite on Nov. 27.

The sportsmanship hearing is open to the public and all media. LHSAA assistant executive director Keith Alexander will preside over the hearing, along with three executive committee members: Jeffery Sampson of Arcadia, Sharon Clark of Sophie B. Wright and Mike Oakley of Iowa and vice president of the executive committee.

Originally Wednesday’s sportsmanship hearing was to be for Bogalusa and Amite. However, Amite asked for and was granted an extension. Amite’s sportsmanship hearing stemming from the incident will be at 10 a.m. Jan. 7 at the LHSAA office. Once Amite was granted an extension, Bogalusa was offered one, but it declined.
