Hahnville assistant will take reigns of baseball program
After serving as Hahnville’s assistant baseball coach for the last two seasons, David Baudry was officially announced as the head coach last week.

Baudry will take over for Kade Rogers, who is leaving his head coaching role to serve as the Coordinator of Safety, Security and Emergency Preparedness for St. Charles Parish Public Schools. Hahnville advanced to the state tournament last season before falling in the quarterfinals to Rummel, 4-2. The Tigers will be in good shape next year since they are returning 20 of the team’s 25 players.

"It’s very exciting to take over the position from Coach Rogers and try to build on the success we had the previous season," Baudry said. "I think being here for the previous two years will help. Not a lot is going to change in the way we do things.

"We want to keep it going and build on our success."

Baudry served as the head coach for Archbishop Rummel High School from 2005-2010, leading the team to the state playoffs in all six seasons. In three of those seasons, Baudry guided the Raiders to the state tournament, advancing to the state semifinals in 2005 and 2006 and the quarterfinals in 2009.

In 2006, Baudry also led the Rummel-based Nationwide Restoration team to the national championship at the American Legion World Series in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Before coaching Rummel, Baudry was the head baseball coach at Archbishop Shaw High School from 1994-2001. He helped the Eagles reach the state playoffs five times and win the American Legion state championship in 2000.

He has a 277-143 career record as a head coach.

Baudry will also continue to serve as assistant football coach and running backs coach for the Hahnville football team.
