Shreve senior Kennedi Heard said, “We’re going to try our best to bring home a State Championship to Captain Shreve because everybody in Shreveport especially our supporters deserves it so, we’re going to try our best.:
Captain Shreve was finally able to get over the hump this year and they have an opportunity to make history heading clinching the programs first ever state championship.
