Zachary was our last home game of the season at All Star and thus our senior day. We recognized Alex Cedotal, Quentin Armstrong and team manager Aaron Bogan for the contributions they have made to this team and Denham Springs High School over the years. We wish them well on their future endeavors and look forward to finishing out the season strong for our seniors.
The boys team headed into the Zachary match fresh off a close loss to Catholic High who moved to #1 in the state in the most recent power rankings. The Jackets dropped out of the top 10, all the way down to #18 after the loss. Fortunately the rest of the season pits us against four of five teams with winning records, including a forthcoming rematch with Catholic and a inter-regional battle with Archbishop Rummel on Thursday. These games will give us an opportunity to redeem our loss and move our power ranking in the right direction.
The Jackets started strong out the gate racing out to an 8-0 advantage over the visiting Broncos. Cade Fletcher led the team finishing with a big string of strikes in his first game to end with a 234.
Game two saw the Jackets drop one point in the five spot in game two to add 7 more points and put the match out of reach for Zachary. Senior Alex Cedotal picked a perfect time on shine on senior day in game two with a turkey in the 10th to finish off his opponent with a 181. Mason Ballard added a deuce with a 212 and Cade Fletcher continued his hot start with another bag of strikes and a 247.
Game three saw the boys knock down six more points for the final margin of 24-3. Mason Ballard logged a second 200 on the day with a 201 and Dylan Fowler contributed a 191 in the 4-spot. Cade Fletcher continued his torrid start to the day to finish out with a team season high and Baton Rouge region leading 726 (234, 247, 245).
Quentin Armstrong, Alex Cedotal and Aaron Bogan receive their senior pins on senior day.
