The Zachary Rotary Club donated $8,000 to beautify the outdoor patio area of Lane Nursing Home.
The shot heard around Louisiana on Friday night was made by guard Austin Veal.
Veal took the ball the length of the court in seven seconds to score, giving Zachary a 40-39 victory over Scotlandville in District 4-5A boys basketball action Friday night.
It was Scotlandville’s first official loss to a Louisiana team this season and is also the Hornets’ first district loss since 2010, said SHS coach Carlos Sample. A Hall of Fame game loss to Madison Prep a couple of weeks ago doesn’t count, according to the LHSAA.
