Thibodaux recently played Natchitoches Central in a tournament and lost by two points. Natchitoches Central was champion this year of West Monroe’s own District 2-5A. In girls soccer action, No. 6 West Monroe lost to No. 3 St. Scholastica 8-0 in the third-round of the LHSAA Division I playoffs Monday in Covington.
