NATCHEZ &045; Huntington’s Lady Hounds still have that desire to claim some hardware.

The quest for a big prize in track and field last year came up a bit short, and they had similar results in basketball and softball earlier this school year. So now the Lady Hounds started off with a commanding District 7-1A win Thursday.

Huntington finished with 91 1/2 points with Amite School Center in second with 55. WCCA had 17, and Trinity had 15.
