The CHS indoor track program are looking for number 14 this season
The CHS indoor track program has racked up 13 state titles since 1991 and 10 in the last 12 years under coach Pete Boudreaux. The Bears are looking for number 14 this season, and started warming up last weekend in the Last Chance Meet at the Carl Maddox Fieldhouse at LSU. The meet was a non-scoring event that offered individuals a final opportunity to qualify for the state indoor track meet held on February 16, at LSU.
CHS had four winners at the meet: Ebenezer Aggrey (high jump); D.J. Butler (400 meters); Collin Hedges (1600 meters) and the 4×400 relay (Luke DiResto, D.J. Butler, Ebenezer Aggrey, and Charlie Groves). Second place finishes went to Collin Hedges (800 meters); Chris Cuntz (1600 meters); James Lalonde (3200 meters); 4×200 relay (Braelen Morgan, Ebenezer Aggrey, D.J. Butler, and Charlie Groves) and the 4×800 relay (Ben Langley, Matthew Hubbell, Collin Hedges, and Blaison Treuil). A third place finish was captured by Owen Simon in the 3200 meters. Had this been a scoring meet, Ebenezer Aggrey (400 meters) and Sayer Sauviac (60 meter hurdles) would have scored with sixth place finishes.
With such a strong tradition in indoor track and the depth of this year’s team, the Bears are considered one of the favorites in the state event in two weeks. John Curtis, Zachary, and Scotlandville are expected to be strong contenders as well.
