By Michael Kiral / L’Observateur / February 9, 1998

RESERVE – Reserve Christian High School will look to continue its successin athletics in recent years when it moves up to the Louisiana High SchoolAthletic Association in the 1998-99 school year.

The school, currently a member of the Louisiana Christian SchoolsAthletic Association, was accepted into the LHSAA at an executivesession during the group’s annual convention in Baton Rouge last week.

Reserve Christian administrator Raymond Goodman said that the Eagleswill compete in Class B and will be placed in District 13. The districtcurrently includes French Settlement, Louise McGehee, Maurepas and Mt.Hermon. “It is a big step for us,” Goodman said. “We are excited about it.”

The Eagles will compete in boys’ basketball and baseball and girls’volleyball, basketball and softball. Unlike the LCSAA, the LHSAA requires that coaches be full-time staffpersonnel. Goodman said he has almost everyone in place and is talking topeople about filling the other coaching positions. Moving into the LHSAA allows Reserve Christian to scrimmage andschedule other association schools, something that it had been barredfrom doing while competing in the LCSAA. The teams will also play moregames than it did in the LCSAA. “There is a lot more opportunities for the kids,” Goodman said.

Reserve Christian has competed in the LCSAA since its inception.

The Eagles has been very successful in recent years, winning four-straightstate titles in volleyball and championships in baseball and girls’basketball in 1995 and softball in 1996.
