CCHS honors baseball and track and field teams
MORGAN CITY — Central Catholic honored its baseball and track and field teams at an awards ceremony at the school Thursday evening.
Central Catholic’s baseball team finished its season Saturday with a state runner-up finish. They concluded their season with a 24-8 mark.
Central Catholic coach Tyler Jensen noted it was a good year with another Class 1A runner-up finish after completing the 2012 season in the same position.
And although Jensen said that after the state title game the team had walked away from the runner-up trophy after receiving it on the field and Principal Vic Bonnaffee had to pick it up for the ride home, the move was nothing more than his team simply forgetting to pick it up after the game.
In the track and field season, Central Catholic broke individual and school records, including Meo Knight’s new school mark in the high jump with a leap of 5-feet, 6-inches and Sal Grizzaffi’s new school record in the 1,600 meter run (5:02.65) and 3,200 meter run (11:10.65). Both participated in the state meet along with David Brown. Knight finished as Class 1A runner-up in the high jump.
