Season update: Congratulations to Coach Ulysses Frontha and the boys track team for winning the District 5-5A championship.
Season update: The varsity play-off game in Shreveport resulted in a loss for Destrehan, 7 - 3. Wildcats stayed on top until mid-game when Byrd hit a grand slam. Although all DHS players had hits, it was not enough to defeat Byrd. The season is now over for this year.
Need to fix for next season: Pitcher, Julie Beaugh, says, "Next year - work on eliminating careless errors, hit the ball better like we did at beginning of this season. Since both starting pitchers are good, be sure to have a strong pitcher for next year. Overall, it was a significant season."Desty Darlings
