The occasional downpour and sea of mud didn’t stop loyal Tiger friends and families as the St. Mary’s Tiger Athletic Association continued a 40 plus year tradition this Friday, Aug. 19 with the annual steak supper and scrimmage fundraiser. The TAA pre-sold 550 steaks with more being sold on site. The organization supports all aspects of St. Mary’s athletics and the steak supper is their signature event and a Natchitoches tradition. In addition to the supper, the event featured an evening of football scrimmages played by Tigers from third grade to high school. A Varsity Tiger victory against the Rosepine Eagles under the field’s new lights capped off another successful event.
