Jonathon Artigues makes a throw to first base in the field for St. Stanislaus College.
Jonathon Artigues, a senior at St. Stanislaus College, recently committed to play baseball at Tulane University following a lengthy recruitment from several schools across the country.
Artigues commented, "I chose Tulane because it is a balanced school with very strong academics, as well as, a strong baseball program. It is a program on the rise in a new conference with a new coaching staff. And, it is a school that is close to home which gives my family and friends the opportunity to continue to see me play on a regular basis."
Tulane is also a school that has been familiar to Artigues as he has grown up in Bay St. Louis. His mother, Nancy, received her degree from Tulane in 1988. His father, Ronnie, graduated from Tulane Law School after receiving his undergraduate degree from Loyola. Sep 30, 2014, 21:03
Hawks fall on conversion attempt; this Friday to see all four local high schools back in action The Hancock Hawks were the only area team in action last Friday night as all of Division 8-4A enjoyed an open date.
The Hawks (3-2, 0-1) narrowly fell to the Ocean Springs Greyhounds 23-22 in Kiln as both squads opened their region schedules.
The Hawks nearly took down the undefeated Greyhounds (5-0, 1-0) as quarterback Chase Fagan single-handedly willed the offense in the second half.
Ocean Springs scored first to lead 35-60-5. However, in the second quarter, Fagan scored from four yards out after completing a fourth down pass for 14 yards to Malcolm Rawls. Sep 30, 2014, 21:02
Ocean Springs outlasts Hancock 23-22 The undefeated Ocean Springs Greyhounds escaped Brett Favre Field Friday evening with a 23-22 victory over the Hancock Hawks, but nobody who was in attendance will ever forget the show that put on by Hancock quarterback Chase Fagan.
Fagan nearly single-handedly willed the Hawks (3-2) to victory in the second half, but Ocean Springs Junior Isaiah Toler had other ideas when he broke up a two-point conversion which would have given the Hawks the lead with a minute remaining.
"We played well and we played hard, but we are not satisfied," Hancock Head Coach Rocky Gaudin said. "It's hard when a program is down and you never seem to be able to get a bone. We are going to be in every game if we play like this, but we have to find a way to get over the hump." Sep 26, 2014, 23:49

The Our Lady Academy Crescents on Saturday triumphed over the Hancock Lady Hawks to win the Gulf Coast Kickoff Classic volleyball tournament.
The Our Lady Academy Crescents met the Hancock Lady Hawks once again for the Gulf Coast Kickoff Classic on Saturday at the Father Peter Mockery Gymnasium.
It was the fourth time this season that the two teams have met including a jamboree matchup in the early part of the season. And, one thing remained constant. The OLA Crescents were victorious with a 2-0 sweep.
Hancock head coach David Irwin commented, "We played better than we did last Tuesday against them but not well enough. We can't give up multiple runs on serve/receives. We have to be mentally tougher when we play a quality team. We have to focus on the details when we line up against teams that are efficient. We did get some positive wins in the tournament like Oak Grove on the semis." Sep 23, 2014, 19:44
