|Chiefs look to future successes|
The West Ouachita Chiefs ended their basketball season on a sour note with a lopsided loss to the Neville Tigers.
Although the records may not indicate the progress, few around the West Ouachita community are not excited about the future of the program under first-year head coach Josh Brown.
Brown led West Ouachita (9-21) to a few wins that some thought would not come this early in his tenure.
West Ouachita began the year with wins over Saint Frederick and Class 1A playoff team Mangham.
West Ouachita then had a skid of three games against Sterlington, Caldwell and Grant — all playoff teams — before getting back in the win column against Forrest High School.
West Ouachita was led in scoring by Gary Thomas and Andrew Harris, who each scored in double figures throughout district play.
West Ouachita failed to pick up a district 2-4A win once again this year. The Chiefs will use the summer to get bigger and stronger, a benchmark in their district which includes title contenders Franklin Parish and Carroll.
"We were out-rebounded most games because of size," head coach Josh Brown said. "We have to work on rebounding position and boxing out in this district because everyone is bigger than us."
Only two seniors depart from a team that is young and could be up and coming in this district. The team has a big summer planned at getting stronger and ready to withstand another physical season in one of the area's best districts.
