BOUTTE-His team is off to a 10-1-1 start, one of the best starts in school history.

Hahnville defeated Dutchtown 6-1 at home on Tuesday afternoon and tied Woodlawn at the Denham Springs tournament 1-1.

So why is Tigers Head Coach Frank Cazeaux less than satisfied?

“We are 10-1-1, but it is real deceiving,” Cazeaux said. “We’re not hitting, we just don’t understand the concept of hitting. The most frustrating thing is that we are not competing at the plate.

“We had three hits Thursday night against a guy who was a decent high school pitcher, but we are not swinging the bats like we are capable of swinging them.”

10-1-1 on the season, but still not hitting the ball as well as he had hoped, Cazeaux said it is not hard to motivate his team to try and become a better ballclub despite the recent winning and use his expereince from past years to show that his team must bring their best game.

“I’ve been through this before,” Cazeaux said. “I let them know that this is not a negative, it is constructive criticism. That is the only way that you are going to get better.

“One of the these days the light switch is going to go on that they have to compete to be one of the top teams. That is what I stand for. I try to make them the best that I can make them and try to have them understand that we are going to be a program that is recognized throughout the state.”
