October 19, 2004 © The Katy Tigers graduated a team full of talent in 2004. That team led the Tigers to a 19-5A District Championship and a Region III finalist. Coach Mac will have his hands full replacing guys like Hargrove, Juhl, Ray, Norris, Canales, Chumley, Hammonds, Fuda, & Szymczyk. Mac’s returning class and quality newcomers will allow him to do just that. It’s hard to believe that a program could lose so much and yet be in good shape. The Tigers are just that, in good shape returning a huge bounty of Varsity talent. To compliment that returning Varsity talent are the newcomers that are sure to open some eyes in 2005. Some of the quality players the Tigers will feature in the upcoming season: Jared Gayhart – 3rd team All State – two time all district selection – hit 433 last season he was also 3-2 on the mound.
