For the first time in St. Bernard Sports Hall of Fame’s history, martial arts will be recognized as a sport. Maci Ousset, 2013 World Champion of the World Karate Confederation, is being honored as one of the 2013 Amateur Athletes of the Year on April 5 at the St. Bernard Sports Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Ceremony to be held at the Fred Sigur Civic Center. St. Bernard Parish’s Ousset started karate with a friend at five years old. While her friend quit after two weeks, she remained committed.
