Wildcats Head to State Title Game Looking for 8th Championship

The game was never in doubt on Friday night (Nov 29) as the Louisville Wildcats traveled to Charleston for the North 3A title game against Charleston. Most experts picked the Tigers of Charleston to be the toughest test yet for the Wildcats but a strong defense and big pass plays and runs put Louisville up early and they were never really challenged.

On the last play of the 1st quarter,Roberts took the ball to the Charleston 1 yard line on a 49 yard run. Sangster took the ball in from there as the 2nd quarter began.

WCCRCF Looks at Full Compliance of Facility

Big changes have been taking place at the Winston Choctaw County Regional Correctional Facility over the past few months after an accreditation audit by the American Correctional Association (ACA) in the Spring of 2013 revealed documentation issues within WCCRCF. These issues ultimately led to a probationary period for the facility. Failure to correct these issues could have led to a loss of accreditation of the facility. WCCRCF houses state inmates as well as local prisoners and a loss of accreditation would result in the removal of  the state inmates and state revenue necessary to operate the facility.

Warden Neal Higgason took the position as warden of the facility in August and brought in Assistant Warden Patricia Whitcomb to assist in correcting any deficiencies. Along with Sheriff Jason Pugh and the Winston County Board of Supervisors, staff began making procedural changes immediately.
