Natchitoches Central Chiefs will travel back to Lake Charles to play in another tournament, this time at Barbe High School, where they will have the opportunity to play teams outside their district.

Seniors Devonte Snow, a 160-pound 6-footer; Aydrion Brown at 5 feet, 9 inches, 145 pounds and in the point/shooting guard position; Nathan Curtis; Devin Robinson a 5 feet, 6 inches and 175 pound shooting guard/small forward; and Jamari Franklin are looking to have huge impacts as the season progresses.

After the prior season the seniors are looking forward to returning to the playoffs. This Chiefs team is ranked #12 in the state. These seniors were a part of the same team that had an amazing post season run last year. The Chiefs, who were ranked #9 in post season play, defeated #24 ranked Broadmoor, #8 Southwood and unfortunately fell short to #1 Thibodaux by only five points. The Barbe Tournament is Dec. 19-21 in Lake Charles. Times have not been announced.
