Hi there, all you Wampus Cats:

We hope you are enjoying the new webpage. We are reminding you that this webpage and the Leesville High School Alumni Facebook page are the only official Wampus Cats sites on the World Wide Web. There are other sites purporting to be Wampus Cats or Leesville High School alumni pages. These are commercial websites and are not supported by the LHS Alumni Association. If you join one of them, you are not part of the official Wampus Cat/LHS Alumni Association. We are a non-profit group. The alumni who work for you are all volunteers. No one is paid


The LHS Alumni Association is selling cookbooks. The books contain over 400 recipes contrubuted by LHS alumni. Cookbooks can be purchased for $20 at Phoenix Gift Gallery, Merle Norman/Russell's Gift Shop, Nina's Beauty Box, and My Favorite Things. They can be mailed if the purchaser sends $25 to LHS Alumni Association, PO Box 1381, Leesville, LA 71496. 

LHS Alumni Cookbooks

​The Leesville High School Alumni Association is pleased to announce that Robert Gaines, LHS Class of 1980, will be the 2015 inductee into the LHS Sports Hall of Fame. Robert Gaines departed LHS in 1980 as probably the most decorated athlete in school history. A 10-time letterman (4 in track, 3 in football and 3 in basketball), Robert led the Wampus Cats to their first two state athletic team championships.
Robert was a member of both the 1978 and1980 boys��� track teams which brought home the first two team titles in Wampus Cat history. During his storied career Robert earned All-American and All-State Honors numerous times; he owned a national and state record in relays and sprints. He ran one of the fastest recorded relay splits in the 4 x 400 relay in 1980, helping the Cats garner a dramatic state championship, upsetting Catholic High School of Baton Rouge.
Robert was an all-district performer three times for the Wampus Cat football team and helped the basketball team garner a playoff spot in 1978.
After high school Robert had a successful career at McNeese State University, earning all- conference honors for the Cowboys; he still holds an individual sprint record at McNeese.​
