Bulldogs run past Eunice

The fight between the two historic rivals was to be expected when Jennings visited Eunice High Friday night to take on the No. 7 Bobcats.
The Bulldogs took an early lead against the Bobcats on a 15-yard touchdown run by Darrien Achane to take a 6-0 lead in the opening quarter.
The Bulldogs had stopped a Bobcat drive by forcing a punt after holding the Bobcats at the Eunice 44-yard line.
Jennings took possession of the football at their own 37 and used a strong running attack to advance to the Bobcat 45-yard line.

Lady Cats look to improve

In the third season of their existence, the Eunice High volleyball team is working hard to get better, according to head coach Wayne Fontenot.
“I’m very pleased with the team’s work ethic,” said Fontenot.
“Our goal for this season is to strive for excellence and the girls are working to achieve that goal.”
At practice this past Saturday, Fontenot was focused on teaching fundamentals.
“We’ve spent a lot of time on fundamentals of the game because we have a lot of young kids that are inexperienced.”
