As Shelly Fontenot says, “I never dreamed that I would give birth to 4 children..and now raising four teenagers. It has always been a challenge in every way possible. However, it’s also so rewarding.” Seventeen years ago, on July 31, 1997, Tommy, Jr. and Shelly Fontenot Trosclair of Eunice became parents of quadtruplets.
VILLE PLATTE – The St. Edmund Lady Jays opened the season with a 42-30 loss to Pine Prairie in the annual Turkey Tournament at Sacred Heart of Ville Platte. The Lady Panthers jumped out to a 7-2 first quarter lead as St. Edmund’s Payton Crowell scored the first Lady Jay basket with 6:11 on the clock.
For a few minutes Monday night, it seemed that the home court might be the key to the Lady Bengals’ first win of the season. But late surges in each half by the visiting Lady Bulldogs lifted Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College to a 78-62 win over LSU Eunice.
