Athletic Training Ready for A New Year

Woodlawn High School is fortunate to employ a Certified Athletic Trainer. Our trainer, Shelby Boudreaux, has been a Certified Athletic Trainer since 2018. She has served at several high schools, in an outreach position with a physical therapy clinic and a hospital in south Louisiana. She also teaches Sports Medicine, Medical Terminology, and Emergency Medical Responder. She will be assisted on the sidelines by her student aides, which are currently enrolled in Woodlawn’s Sports Medicine classes. These students gain valuable experience which could lead them to many areas of the healthcare industry.

The rest of our Sports Medicine Team includes Doctors Kyle Pontiff and James Michael Robinson, with Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital. Physical Therapist, Mike Duplantis, joins us from Moreau Physical Therapy. Woodlawn High School is also in partnership with the Baton Rouge Orthopedic Clinic. 

Just a few quick notes as we begin the athletic season:

  • Nutrition: Please have the athletes eat breakfast either at home or at school. The body cannot operate without the fuel that a good breakfast will provide. Please remember that the athlete will perform tomorrow on what they eat today.
  • Hydration: It is very important that athletes involved in outside sports like football, cross country, and soccer stay hydrated through the month of September. Athletes should drink a gallon of water a day. Also, athletes should monitor the color of their urine. Urine which is dark yellow to a dark gold indicates that the athlete is dehydrated. Should this occur please have the athlete drink water until the urine is a clear. Just like nutrition, the athlete is drinking for tomorrow. If he starts the day dehydrated, he will remain dehydrated and risk having a heat illness the next day.
  • Concussions: Concussions and the management of concussions remain a hot topic in the sports community. We have excellent information available to parents and students on concussions. The forms page includes information which needs to be reviewed on a yearly basis. The links below will also provide additional information concerning concussions.
