All-District 7-5A baseball selections

T.J. Thomas of Destrehan

T.J. Thomas – Destrehan senior – District 7-5A MVP

For a Destrehan team that earned the District 7-5A championship and posted another high quality season overall, Thomas was an all-around star who came through in the clutch – with his arm and bat alike. He scored 22 run, drove in 19 and stole 11 bases while batting .324 this season. On the mound, he was the Wildcats’ ace, finishing the year with a 2.38 ERA in 73 innings pitched and striking out 93 batters against 18 walks. Thomas raised his game in district play especially, piling up a trio of sterling performances: in wins over East St. John, Central Lafourche and Thibodaux, he struck out 37 batters, including outings of 15, 11 and 11 strikeouts, and allowed no earned runs over those games. He went 8-2 in his starts.

Chris Mire – Destrehan – District 7-5A Coach of the Year

Mire led his squad to a 24-11 season, including the District 7-5A championship. The Wildcats reached the Class 5A quarterfinals after besting Ouachita in a dramatic first round game – overcoming the ghosts of the team’s recent first round eliminations – and then sweeping St. Amant in a second round series. That cemented a breakthrough season for DHS.Team
