Tigers keep Catskin
Marksville High School Tigers players and coaches surround the coveted Catskin banner after defeating the Bunkie Panthers, 44-0, in the season opener for both teams on Sept. 1. Marksville now holds a six-game winning streak in the traditional rivalry game that was put on hold the past two years due to scheduling conflicts. Bunkie holds an overall advantage in the long-running series. The win means the banner will be displayed again this year at Marksville and be up for grabs again next Fall. {Photo by Crystal Fuqua}
