It was a great night to be a member of the St. Mary’s Tiger family as the Tigers took on Jonesville’s Block High Bears before a stadium full of St. Mary’s fans. Alumni from the classes of 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988 and 2008 enjoyed a reception before the game-and what a game it was! A fiercely determined Tiger football team took charge and never looked back as they delivered a 56 to 0 thrashing of the hapless Block Bears.
The Carthaginian Peace imposed on Jonesville wasn’t the only action on the gridiron that night however. Fourteen young ladies from St. Mary’s senior class were presented on the Homecoming court. Each senior was escorted by her father, grandfather, or brother and was presented to the crowd as her accomplishments during high school and plans for the future were announced. Miss Alexandra Brittlynn Brossett was named St. Mary’s 2018-2019 Homecoming Queen and was crowned by her predecessor before a cheering crowd.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal would like to congratulate Miss Brossett and her fellow court members and wish them every success in the future. They are an impressive group of young women who will go far. Likewise, the young men of the Tiger football team are a well coached, disciplined and hard working group of young men. The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes to them for the remainder of the season and life beyond. Go Tigers!
