For the second week in a row, our Panther Cross Country team made the trip across the Mississippi River to Brusly High School. This week, the Panthers competed in the Brusly Cinclaire Run on the Levee. First year Head Coach Erik Wagner was extremely pleased with his team’s performance, and for good reason. Every Panther runner ran a personal record in their races. Woodlawn High School was led by Ty Davis, who placed 18th in the three mile varsity race. Ty was only a few shy of breaking into the all-time top 20 list for Woodlawn High School. Liam Dowdy also finished with a top 30 performance while setting his PR.
Our Lady Panthers were paced by freshman Kailyn Lebrun, who finished 27th in the varsity three mile race.
The Woodlawn High Cross Country team will be in action again Saturday at the St. Joseph’s Invitational at Highland Road Park.

Following a busy week, which saw the Lady Panthers in action in six matches, Woodlawn High was back in action with six matches again this past week.
Tuesday night saw Woodlawn face neighborhood rival St. Michael. The Lady Panthers struggled to get traction versus the visiting Warriors on all three levels. After the freshman and JV teams both lost two sets to none, the varsity Panthers were also unable to get much positive going. At the end of the match, the visiting Warriors walked away with a three set win.
On Wednesday, the Lady Panthers travelled to Denham Springs for a three-match set versus the Lady Yellow Jackets. Much like Tuesday nigh, the freshman and JV teams struggled, each losing in two sets. However, the varsity team bounced back with a strong three set win over the Yellow Jackets. Our Lady Panthers won the match 25-19, 25-11, and 25-20.
Finally, the Lady Panthers played host to the Rumble in the Jungle Volleyball tournament. Woodlawn finished the tournament with a 3-1 record, defeating White Castle, Caddo Magnet, and Hammond in straight sets before falling to Lakeshore in two sets. Sophomore Mikenzie Wells was named to the All-Tournament team for Woodlawn High.
