HICKS — Hicks Lady Pirates head coach Mike Charrier and new Pirates’ head basketball coach Daniel Fletcher are proud to announce the 2014-15 Hicks High School basketball schedule.

The Pirates and Lady Pirates close out preseason activities on Halloween by hosting the Hicks Jamboree and will open the regular season at home against Avoyelles Charter.

Hicks will celebrate its homecoming on Nov. 7 against Negreet and will be taking part in a total of four tournaments, including the annual Hicks High School Tournament, which is scheduled for Nov. 20-22.

The two teams will take on the likes of Georgetown, Pitkin and Evans in home-and home contests before entering district play on Jan. 27, 2015, against cross-parish rival, Simpson, at home.

Also in district play, the Pirates and Lady Pirates will take on both Hornbeck and Anacoco in home-and-home outings.

Both teams are under the guidance of new coaches, although Charrier has been at Hicks for a few years as the boys’ head coach. However, he moved over to the Lady Pirates during the offseason and Fletcher entered as the new Pirates’ coach.
