High School Sports

Prep football schedules examined

During the summer workouts, each football team has a goal to win their respective districts and make a deep run in the playoffs.
St. Edmund rolled to a 10-2 overall record in 2017 and went a perfect 7-0 in District 4-1A for the district championship
The Blue Jays open the 2018 season at home against Hanson Memorial (3-8 in 2017)
St. Edmund then travels to Sacred Heart of Ville Platte (8-3) and Mamou (1-9).
The Blue Jays open district at rival Basile (9-4, 6-1) before entertaining South Cameron (0-9, 0-7).

2018 top athletes named

Their high school careers will be remembered for their accomplishments as stellar athletes and quality individuals.
The Eunice News Athletes of the Year are Eunice High’s Robbi Palmer and Jaden Brasseaux along with St. Edmund’s Abby Miller and Murphy Richard.
All four were nominated by their respective athletic directors as their school’s top athletes.
Palmer and Miller were both selected as homecoming queens during the 2107 football season.
“I was very surprised when they named me Miss Blue Jay,” Miller said. “I didn’t think I was going to get that award.”

Matt joins EHS Sports Hall of Fame

Leonard Matt may be one of the most diverse athletes in the history of Eunice High sports.
From 1956 through 1958, Charles Leonard Matt was a key performer for the Eunice High Bobcats in football, basketball, and track.
In football, Matt first played end for the legendary coach Faize Mahfouz and was a two-time All-District selection at that position as well as being named an All-State Honorable Mention selection at end.

Destrehan rallies in seventh to upend Millers in state tourney

After a 13-3 loss to Retif Oil in their American Legion State Tournament opener Friday, the Crowley Millers looked as if they had finally caught the break they need in their elimination game Saturday afternoon at Kirsch Rooney Stadium.
The Millers scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth to take a 2-1 lead over Destrehan’s ES&H and were on the verge of picking up their first state tournament victory in recent memory.
And then the wheels fell off.
