Good news for Pleasant Hill

Pleasant Hill boys basketball coach Rusty Johnson did not have a very merry Christmas.

Instead, he was wondering how to lift the morale of a team that had 18 wins taken away from it by the Louisiana High School Athletic Association. Then came Jan. 12 and Johnson was able to smile.

That's when the LHSAA informed him it would no longer make the team forfeit the 18 games in which D'Ante Youngblood played.

It is a seemingly rare instance in which the LHSAA admits to making a mistake, especially of this magnitude, but it certainly made for some heartache in Sabine Parish.

Now, Pleasant Hill gets to keep its 27-3 record and will probably be ranked in the Class C top 10 when the polls are released later this week.
