CHS Ultimate Team: Three-Time State Champions
The Catholic High ultimate frisbee squad, the Bayou Hazard, captured the State Championship last weekend at Grizzly Field. The host Bears went 5-0 in the tournament and defeated Jesuit, 11-1, in the state finals.
The Bears defeated Jesuit, Lafayette High and Archbishop Rummel in pool play before advancing to the state semifinals against neighboring Baton Rouge High. The Bears defeated BRHS by a lopsided score of 11-1 to advance to the finals.
In the championship match, the Bears dominated Jesuit from start to finish, scoring early and often, on their way to a 11-2 win. Bayou Hazard was led by senior captain Kenny Hingle, senior Michael Delatte, junior captain Dylan Riviere and junior Parker Hanks.
The state championship was the third in a row for Bayou Hazard and sixth in the last seven years. Head coach Michael Aguilar, who has led the Bears to four state titles in the last five years of the organization was pleased with his program’s accomplishments. “This year’s team is young and I was impressed with their focus, especially in lopsided wins,” said Aguilar. “We hope to carry the momentum of our state championship to the regionals in Atlanta.”
Bayou Hazard, 11-6 on the season, will compete in Atlanta on May 14-15, 2016.
