New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame to laud Cajuns’ Tony Robichaux

The Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame has taken note of what Tony Robichaux has accomplished down Interstate 10.

The Louisiana-Lafayette baseball coach is the hall’s outstanding college coach state-wide, it announced Monday with its other award winners for the 2013-14 sports year.

Robichaux led the Ragin’ Cajuns to a school record 58 victories and a national seed in the NCAA tournament, falling just a win shy of the College World Series. He’ll be honored at a banquet Aug. 2 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

LSU freshman Leonard Fournette, the consensus No. 1 recruit in the nation, is the outstanding male amateur athlete.

The banquet also will feature induction into the Hall of Fame for five athletes — those honorees will be announced Wednesday — and the Corbett Award, which goes to the state’s top amateur athletes. Those will be announced Thursday.
