LaSalle Tigers sit in first place in District 3-1A play

By Greg Jones
 
The LaSalle Tigers were supposed to be a rebuilding team this year after graduating 10 seniors last year, but don’t tell this team things like that. The Tigers have sprinted out to a 10-5 overall record and 5-0 in district 3-1A play. They have been carried this season by the pitching of Ross Campbell, senior, and Eli Stringer, sophomore. These guys have done the job on the mound this season thus far. Cullen Wise, sophomore, has also filled in to pitch some crucial innings.

The Jena Lady Giants wrapped up district play this past week when they traveled to Avoyelles to take on the Lady Mustangs. The Lady Giants were looking to win a share of the district championship. With the win the Lady Giants would be tied with Buckeye and Winnfield for first place in district play. Both teams would have trouble scoring as the score would be 0-0 going into the top of the third. The Lady Giants would take the lead in the top of the third 1-0 and would not look back as they would score 6 runs in 4th and 5th inning to go on to win the game 13-1.
