Friday, September 2 was indeed a red-letter day for the Natchitoches Central High School community, as the Chiefs emerged victorious in their home opener against Shreveport’s Woodlawn High School. The game was also filled with fun activities. The Natchitoches Parish Library staff was on hand with face painting for children, including more than a few high school aged ones.
There was certainly no reason to leave the game hungry! The Lady Chiefs softball team held a superbly done brisket plate fundraiser featuring cooking from Sweetie’s BBQ. The funds raised will be used to feed the players on away games and for equipment for the program.
Halftime featured the young ladies of the “Little Chiefs” cheerleading camp. The one day camp has been held by NCHS cheerleading for over 30 years. Young girls attending the camp are given basic instruction on cheerleading and have the opportunity to show off their new skills at a Chief’s game. Over 100 young ladies attended this year’s camp.
The Chiefs’ hard work and preparation was rewarded with a most auspicious start to the football season. The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes NCHS a safe and victorious season. Go Chiefs!
