Accolades Continue for CHS Coaching Legend Pete Boudreaux
Catholic High School coaching legend Pete Boudreaux has been selected by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association as the BoysÕ Coach of the Year for the state of Louisiana for the 2016 Track & Field season. This honor is based upon the performance of the Catholic High School team throughout the 2016 season and is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the student athletes, the coaching staff and the administration of the school. This latest award comes on the heels of BoudreauxÕs induction into the National High School Hall of Fame in July 2016.
Boudreaux, a CHS alumnus from the class of 1959 and a member of the Grizzly Greats Athletic Hall of Fame, has built a cross country and track and field dynasty since returning to his alma mater in 1968. In a coaching career that has spanned nearly 49 years, Boudreaux has led his teams to 16 state cross country championships, 12 state indoor track titles and 16 state outdoor track championships. In addition to his 44 championships, his teams have finished second 22 times in the three combined sports. Boudreaux has coached 13 individual state champions in cross country and his 1975 team compiled the only perfect score (15) ever recorded in the stateÕs history. In track, 23 CHS athletes have set state records under BoudreauxÕs tutelage. Along with his coaching duties, Boudreaux has also served as athletic director, teacher and school counselor. The entire CHS community is so proud of Coach Pete Boudreaux for this honor and his brilliance as a coach, teacher and mentor.
