Coach Hargis Named to Southeastern University Hall of Fame
Posted: Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Congratulations to Holy Cross Baseball Coach Cass Hargis for being named to Southeastern’s 2017 Athletic Hall of Fame. Hargis, a native of Meraux, Louisiana, patrolled the outfield for the Lions from 2008-11. At the conclusion of his four years under then-head coach and current Director of Athletics Jay Artigues, Hargis left as the program's career leader in hits (299), runs (217), triples (18) and games played (232). 

Hargis also ranks among the school's career leaders in doubles (54, 2nd), RBI (146, 6th), walks (106, 5th) and hit-by-pitch (34, 5th). A 2010 All-Southland Conference selection, Hargis earned Freshman All-America accolades from Louisville Slugger and Ping! Baseball. Like Connors, Hargis has also returned to his alma mater following his playing days, as he is currently the head baseball coach at Holy Cross High School.

The Southeastern Athletics Hall of Fame inductees are elected by an eight-member selection committee.

Posted: Monday, April 10, 2017

Friday was a busy day for the seniors at Holy Cross. With the annual Alumni Luncheon held at the Sheraton Galleria during the day where the students took the first step in being an official alumnus, the seniors then went home to get ready for their big night – Senior Prom. Holy Cross held its prom in one of the city's biggest venues--the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. With the dome being lit up in Holy Cross colors of blue and gold, the attendees gathered in the St. Charles Club lounge, sporting their spring best for a night of fun. The night was then capped off at the annual Tiger Fest After-Prom Party, where students participated in games and activities to walk away with prizes that ranged from flat screen TVs, computers, and gift cards to cash, dorm room items and much more. Thank you to everyone who made the night spectacular.
