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 Leesville High School (LHS) Alumni Association has announced this year’s selection for the LHS Sports Hall of Fame. This year’s inductee will be 1979 graduate Terry Holt. Terry was a 3 sport star for the Wampus Cat, earning 4 varsity letters in football, 2 in basketball and 3 in track. He was the first LHS running back to be credited with a 1,000 yard rushing season and still ranks in the top 10 all time in rushing yards for the Cats. He was an All American and national record holder in track; Terry was on the first state championship athletic team from Leesville High School---the 1978 Boys’ Track and Field Team. Holt joins NFL and LSU stars Kevin Mawae and Eddie Fuller, coach/player Ted Paris, basketball star Richard Reese and multi-sport star and teammate Robert Gaines in the Hall of Fame.
