The Brusly High School basketball program got some unwanted news last week when head coach Harold Boudreaux announced his resignation to take the head coaching position at St. Michael’s Catholic High School in Baton Rouge.
The Brusly Panthers have a goal in mind: Get the district championship.
This was especially true on April 18 when the team let loose with a tour de force during a double-header at Brusly. The Panthers easily won both games, beating the Pelicans 10-0 and 16-2.
Brusly’s Evan Daigle and his hard work on the field and at the plate have earned him some well-deserved recognition, as he was recently named Baton Rouge Male Athlete of the Week by Nola.com.
Going into last weeks’ series, everyone knew between Brusly High (5-1) and University Laboratory School (4-2) that the games were two of the more important games of the year. After Brusly fell in the first game at U-High on Tuesday 5-2, it turned out to be a fight to the finish as the Panthers pulled of the win at home in extra innings 5-4.
