Basketball Bears Pick Up Two Wins
The CHS basketball team improved their early season record to 6-3 on the season with two victories this past week over Istrouma and Parkview Baptist.
Last Thursday, CHS played host to Istrouma. After a competitive first half, the Bears dominated the third and fourth quarters outscoring the Indians 58-26 in the final 16 minutes of play. CHS had four players score in double figures for the night, including Dennis Hebert III with 16, Harlan Hamilton with 14, Ian Cavana with 12, and Connor Green with 10.
On Saturday, the Bears traveled across town to face Parkview Baptist. The Eagles jumped out to an early lead, but CHS used hot shooting from beyond the arc to take over control of the game. The Bears knocked down 16 three-pointers on their way to a tough 66-61 road win. Senior Ian Cavana led the way with 20 points, including five threes.
After the conclusion of exams this week, CHS will travel to Denham Springs on Friday night. Freshmen tip off at 5 p.m. followed by JV at 6 p.m. and varsity at 7:15 p.m.
