Vagabond Lady Pirates win third consecutive state championship


HAMMOND – Not even a Category 5 hurricane destroying their gym could stop the Hicks Lady Pirates from repeating as state champions.

The second-ranked Lady Pirates closed out one of the most challenging seasons in school history with a resounding 59-46 win over the fourth-seeded Reeves Lady Red Raiders in the Class C state championship on Friday at the University Center on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University.

“These girls understand that hard work works,” veteran Hicks head coach Mike Charrier said.

When Hurricane Laura pounded southwest Louisiana with Category 5 winds last August, the powerful storm made its way into Vernon Parish with a vengeance, destroying the gymnasium at Hicks High School, leaving the Lady Pirates and their male counterparts without a home gym.
