Bossier girls basketball on the upswing

Bossier's boys high school basketball program has greatly overshadowed the girls program over the last few years.

That could be about to change. Bossier's title in the "Doc" Edwards tournament says a lot.

The Lady Kats beat the two teams that played for the Class 5A state championship last year, Southwood and Airline. They had lost to Southwood twice this year, including once by 22 points.

And they won it without their head coach, T.J. McCall. McCall was apparently suspended by the school for three games for a run-in with a game official. Assistant Faith Jones deserves credit for taking Bossier to the title.

McCall, of course, deserves credit, too, for getting the team to the point where it could compete for a championship in a tournament with as strong a field as the "Doc" Edwards.
