*Scholarship: The Lady Cavs “Fighting Heart Memorial Scholarship Award Presented in memory of Annick Morris”, as selected by the coaches annually.

Our dear former Lady Cavs student-athlete, Annick Morris, passed away unexpectedly in 2016.  Annick was a starting varsity player all 4 years at LTHS, a stand-out student athlete on and off of the court, and embodied all of the high quality characteristics a Lady Cav should strive to be.  


Selection will be made by the coaching staff based on the six character traits, that not only Annick exemplified, but that are the hallmark of the Lady Cavs basketball program.  These traits are: determination, dedication, commitment, resoluteness, resilience, and courageousness.  In addition, the coaching staff will consider those applicants who demonstrate a commitment to high academic ideals and involvement in community service.


This Scholarship fund was set up in Annick’s honor and memory, in 2016 by then coach Hinson, the booster club and her family.  The details can be reviewed in the meeting minutes and scholarship details. Recipients names and year will be placed on the plaque which hangs just outside of the locker room for all to see and be inspired.

“Once a Lady Cav, always a Lady Cav!”


*TAX-FREE days:  Our booster clubs are part of LTHS & LTISD schools systems which share tax exempt 501(c)(3) status, and as such our booster club does not pay taxes (nor tips) for goods or services for booster club use.  Accordingly, we are allowed 2 fundraisers and 2 tax free days per calendar year, so be sure to notify LTABC general treasurer (over all LT booster clubs), which 2 days are chosen for proper reconciliation. It’s a little tricky since the year starts/ends each January -verify this with Evelyn Sorrels/Adm Asst to the Athletic Director.


Team Dinners :  Traditionally a Varsity parent provides a home cooked meal at their home, after practice thru about 8:00pm (no later); to include ALL varsity players, varsity team managers, varsity team photographer.  Usually dinners are hosted on Wednesday nights, every varsity parent takes at least one turn; sign up sheets will be sent out in October after teams are formed. Sub-Varsity can also do this, but will leave it up to each team parent to get a vote/communicate this.
