Tigers Coming Off Disappointing Losses, Looking For A Win Against J-Hodge Tigers

The Tigers of Winnfield Senior High School are recovering from two disappointing losses to teams who were described by Tiger Coach Bankston as being “established programs and playoff teams.” On the Friday leading into Labor Day Weekend the Giants from Jena came to Stokes-Walker Stadium and left with a 46 – 13 win. Then this past Friday night, the Tigers from St. Mary’s in Natchitoches left Winnfield with a 62 – 34 win.

Coach Bankston said that the Tigers may have two losses for the season, “but good teams have a way of rebounding. Everything being done is being done for a more positive outcome in the future.” He added that although the Tigers have some inexperienced players, “the positive side of this is that the more our inexperienced players get to play, the better they get.” Coach Bankston also stressed that every player played extremely hard, saying, “they may not have been in the right spot, but they gave 100%.”

Several homeowners have video surveillance cameras that have provided officers with possible descriptions of the suspects. “Any person walking in neighborhoods between midnight and morning will be stopped and questioned,” warned Chief of Police Johnny Ray Carpenter. Carpenter, himself, has been working overnights in efforts to catch these thieves. “We have a curfew law in the city ordinance and it will be strictly enforced,” he stated.

Winn Parish Residents Battle Harvey, Work To Help With Recovery

As a designated volunteer for the Cajun Navy, Winnfield resident Randa Connor could not simply sit back and watch people of our community, state, and neighboring Texas in their time of need. She and Chris Williams, also of Winnfield, have networked with area churches and are collecting items that flood victims need to help in recovery efforts. They have stressed that they will assist our local flood victims first, and then supplies will be moved to a shelter in Alexandria.
