Golf

Game report: HHS golf won against the South Lafourche golf team in Februray.

Star Player: Andrew Noto tore up the green and placed first in the golfing rankings during the match.

Sparkplug: Dayton Bordelon, placing 3rd, also played a hard game and gave his best efforts to help the Tigers receive a sweet victory.

Would be Better If: "I played better than the score reflected," said Dayton Bordelon "and next match (against Berwick) I will put forth my best effort."

WHAT’S Next: The Tigers will play Berwick in two weeks at the Willodale Country Club.

Cheerleaders

Update: Tryouts are coming up for the girls dance team and cheerleaders.

As of now nothing has officially started for the lovely ladies of the dance team.

Track

Game Report: Girls indoor track has been busting their butts and its has finally paid off.

 Four of Hahnville's athletes have qualified in the top 10 seeds of the events taking place this weekend at LSU for the Championship.

Sparkplug: TaNeisha Stieb, junior, is ranked No. 1 overall seed in long jump and No. 4 in triple jump.

Also Rickia Preston, freshmen, is ranked 6th seed in the shot put.

Helping Hand: Also representing the Lady Tigers this weekend is Constance Mitchell, freshmen, who ranks 7th seed in the high jump.

Coach’s Thoughts: Coach Ken Orterling is very proud of his girls for their hard work and dedication to the team.

All girls efforts will pay off at the championship as they compete for final placing in the district.

Wrestling

Match Report: The LHSAA State Championship Tournament was held at the Ponchatrain Center last Friday and Saturday, Feb. 9 and 10.

Sparkplug: Levi Gruwell placed 2nd this weekend in the state tournament. Levi was disappointed in his outcome, but gave is absolute best throughout the whole match.

Helping Hand: Ricky Baudoin placed in the Top 8 of the tournament and contributed many points to the teams overall score.

Would be Better If: Team members said the outcome was shocking to them because they had prepared the whole year for that tournament. Unfortunately that was not reflected and the boys feel short by placing 8th overall.

Last Thoughts: Levi Gruwell stated that he was very proud of the younger, newer wrestlers by their performance and is excited for them for the next year.

Tennis

Game Report: The Lady Tiger Tennis team was supposedly suppose to play the DHS Wildcats, but the Lady Wildcats was a no- show to the match.

Sparkplug: Kristen Brannen leads the team with her positive leadership ability and strong tennis abilities.

Would be Better If: Amber Cortez, captain of the tennis team, feels that her team is young and maybe inexperienced, but has made many accomplishments. "We all work really well together" said Cortez when they played Central, who beat the Tigers 5- 4, and the South LaFouche victory 7- 2.

What's Next: Season has not officially started yet, but schedule will be posted here and most matches will be held at Monsanto or HHS tennis courts.

Girls Basketball

Game Update: As I write this, the girls are in Monroe competing in the playoffs to advance closer to the championship, updates will be posted next week on the teams status.

Baseball

Game Report: On Feb. 14, the Tigers played Jesuit and lost 6-2 in the last inning.

Sparkplug: A major contributor to the game was Jordan Stephany who slammed the ball to the right fence of the outfield.

Helping Hand: All the boys played hard together and never game up. All kept up morale as the team stayed in the game against opponents.

Would be Better If: We started out being enthusiastic- but as the game progressed the boys seem to lose spirit.

Player Thoughts: Buddy Trauth thinks we need to stay focused and be more aggressive at the plate.

What's Next: The Tigers play in the St. Charles Catholic Tourney to kick off the preseason. District play starts the 19th.
