The action shifts to Sulphur’s SPAR Aquatic Center for Wednesday through Saturday for the Allstate Sugar Bowl/LHSAA State Swim meet.

Competition begins Wednesday with preliminary races at 10 a.m. for Division IV and 4 p.m. for Division III. Thursday’s finals are set for 9:30 a.m. for Division IV and 3 p.m. for Division III.

Divisions I and II begin their two-day competitions Friday. Division II prelims are at 10 a.m., while Division I starts at 4 p.m. The meet concludes Saturday with the Division II finals at 9:30 a.m. and Division I finals at 3 p.m.

Signees, etc.

Parkview Baptist shortstop Nicky Dawson also was part of the LSU softball signing last week. Dawson, the All-Metro small schools MVP last spring, joins, East Ascension shortstop Claire Weinberger in the LSU signing class.

There were other signees, including Brusly pitcher-infielder Evan Daigle, who signed with Northwestern State for baseball. Daigle also was an All-Metro performer last spring. Runnels outfielder Hampton Hudson signed to play baseball at Southern.

Broadmoor guard Anthony Drye signed with Kansas Christian College. Drye is the younger brother of former Glen Oaks and Tulane player Trevante Drye.

Also St. Joseph’s Academy swimmers Amy Miller and Clayton Black, are scheduled to sign Monday at the school. Miller (Texas A&M) and Black (LSU) committed last month.

Another Golden Football

Episcopal defensive coordinator Jimmy Williams gave back to his school in a special way during a Week 10 win over The Dunham School.

Williams, who prepped at EHS and played collegiately at Vanderbilt, presented the school with a commemorative “Golden Football” given to the schools of players who competed in the Super Bowl, which is in its 50th season.

During an NFL career that included stints with the 49ers and Seahawks, Williams played in the Super Bowl for the Seahawks.

Scotlandville was presented with a Golden Football by one of its alums, Leon Seals, earlier in the season.
