The Lake Charles area hit a "home run" this past week, when the LHSAA announced that the High School Championships for Baseball and Boys & Girls Basketball are headed to Southwest Louisiana.
Both basketball championships will be held at Burton Coliseum, while baseball will take place at McMurray Park in Sulphur. And with Championship events come their teams and fans. Which means prosperous weeks are ahead for local businesses.
So what made Southwest Louisiana stand out versus other areas? It's the helping hand the area extends when anyone visits.
