By Megan Waters - Mar 22, 2007
Hot hands: Andrew Noto had a sweet swing on the course and played with poise on the green. His performance contributed to the big ‘W’ in Thursday's match.
Sparkplug: On the girls' side, Annie Kinler perfected her game to bring the girls team in the lead for the day.
Overall record: The Tigers traveled to Sulfur for their annual golf tournament and placed 4th out of 25 teams. Overall winner: University High.Softball
Season update: On Thursday, March 22, the Lady Tigers played St. Charles Catholic, but fell short on home turf.
Hot hands: Meghan Vial, senior, kept the home plate guarded as best as she could during the innings. She showed excellent leadership abilities when the girls were in a bind.
Sparkplug: Jessica Cancienne, sophomore, tried to keep the game alive with quick outs at first and second in the first inning.
What needs work: For the girls, communication seemed to hurt their game. Calling for the ball or calling the play for simple outs were minor errors that hurt the Lady Tigers in the long run.
Overall record: Before going into the DHS Softball Tournament, March 23-24, the Lady Tiger's record is 6-1-2.Track
Season update: After a big win for the Lady Tiger track team in the Don Raymond Relays, the boys and girls competed in the Sugar Bowl Invitational track meet Friday, March 23 and the girls placed 3rd overall, 2nd in the 800-meter dash and 2nd in the 1600-meter dash.

What needs work: Since HHS competed against some of the best track teams all over the south, the relay teams needed work on relay exchanges in order to save time in the race. "Exchanges are costing us too much time, they can be better," says Coach Oestriecher.Baseball
