LAPLACE — The 14-year-old St. John Warriors recently took home the prestigious title of “Regional Champions” to wrap up this basketball season. The tournament was hosted in Slidell March 16-18, and the Warriors went undefeated.

“However, we want to thank them for their many years of participation and dedication to the St. John Recreation Department and wish them the best of luck in the next chapter of their lives.”

The Warriors included Patrick Martin Jr., Derron Taylor, Devion Devare, Dwayne Lee Jr., Robert Ferrygood, Yarick Favors, Amir Rios, Warren Snyder III, Kylon Harris and Kelvinte Barber.
