The 2016 Bay High Tigers baseball team. The Tigers have advanced to the second round of the Class 4A state baseball playoffs for the first time in recent memory. Game two of the best-of-three series is set for today at 2pm at the Fred Weems Baseball Complex.
The Bay High Tigers swept Columbia High School in two games last week in the first round of the Class 4A state baseball playoffs which placed the Tigers (15-9) in uncharted waters for the first time in recent memory.
The Tigers have advanced to the first round of the state playoffs in baseball before but it has been at least a quarter-centery or possibly longer since this success has been enjoyed on the Tigers' diamond.
First-year Bay High head coach Kevin Burdine has orchestrated a meteoric turnaround in the baseball program at the school that sits on Blue Meadow Road in Bay St. Louis.
The year was 2005 the last time the Tigers even advanced to the postseason on the diamond. The head coach was the oldest son of the man who the field is named after, Mike Weems. Apr 29, 2016, 20:07

The 2016 St. Stanislaus College/Our Lady Academy tennis team.
The St. Stanislaus/Our Lady Academy tennis team recently claimed their 18th consecutive Division 8-4A tennis championship.
This spring athletic season has been one that has been defined by weather and rescheduling, and not just for tennis.
However, despite all the water raining down from up high forcing adjustments to the schedule, the SSC/OLA team has managed a 10-2 record. Their only losses were to the Class 5A Oxford Chargers who have won seven straight state titles and perennial Class 6A state power Gulfport.
The team is led by Seniors Mitchell Walk, James Estrada, Dustin Bosch, and Madison Wawrek; however, there are seven underclassmen starting on the varsity roster and all are talented across the board. Apr 15, 2016, 18:49

SSC taps Dunklin to lead basketball program Saint Stanislaus College reached back into their basketball tradition to name their new head basketball coach. On Tuesday, April 5th Aaron Dunklin, a member of the SSC class of 2000, was selected from a large pool of applicants to take the reins of the Rock-a-chaw basketball program.
Dunklin commented, "I am extremely blessed to have the opportunity to lead our basketball program in a place where I was formed as a Man of Character. Saint Stanislaus basketball has a great tradition surrounding it and my expectation is for us to get back to the essence of that model of character. From our appearance, to the way we walk into a gymnasium, to the way we warmup, to the way we play fundamentally sound from whistle to whistle, we will be seen as the essence of character. Every program is cyclical but the standard has dropped off. Apr 8, 2016, 21:42
