RA: Hathaway junior guard Chloey Guidry rained down 3-pointers Thursday at the Iowa tournament in a 78-36 win over Washington-Marion. Guidry hit nine 3-pointers and finished with 38 points. Guidry added 17 points Friday in a 75-49 over Welsh.

Name a football player of the week.

WA: Grand Lake running back Levi Murrell ran for 134 yards and scored on a 15-yard touchdown run to lead the Hornets to a 13-8 win over East Iberville in a Class 1A semifinal.

RA: Visibly limping in the second half after an injury late in the second quarter, Lake Charles College Prep quarterback Dillon Simon put on a gutsy performance and nearly lead the Trailblazers to the Class 3A finals. In his final game, the McNeese signee completed 20 of 28 passes for 216 yards and four touchdowns.

Simon finished his high school career with more than 6,400 passing yards, 74 touchdowns to only 15 interceptions.St. Louis’ Myca Trail forces her way past Hicks’ Lauren Quinn during a game at the South Beauregard tournament.
