Lady Tigers ranked 2nd in State Playoffs

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Lady Tigers finished the regular season with non-district wins against Jena and Plainview.

The Jena game would be a nine-inning affair that would end on a Taylor Snow laser down the third base line. This was a great high school softball game as the Jena Lady Giants scored 4 runs in the top of the seventh inning on a couple of home runs to tie the game.

But, in the end it would be the Lady Tigers that came away with the win 7-6. It was a great high school softball game gearing up for the LHSAA state playoffs. These are certainly two teams that I expect to be competing in Sulphur for a State Championship in their separate divisions.

The current weight room at JHS

The current weight room at JHS has been used for decades and can only fit about 23 people at one time. This means the football team of 70 members has to work out at three different times. The new field house will be large enough to allow the entire team to work out at the same time. (See story.)

Giants pick up two more wins to stay unbeaten in district play

By Austin Whatley

The Jena Giants came into this past week unbeaten in district play and alone on top of the district standings. With the Caldwell Spartans only one game behind the Giants in the district standings Jena was looking to stay unbeaten and on top of the standings. The Giants district opponent this past week was the Avoyelles Mustangs.

On Tuesday the Giants played the Mustangs at home in Jena. The Giants came in with a 15-8 overall and 4-0 district record. The Giants have made a habit of coming from behind to pick up these district wins. The Giants would have to do the same in this one as they would fall behind 2-0 in the top of the 4th inning. The Giants would tie the game at 2 in the bottom of the 5th as Jordan Overstreet would score on a RBI double by Trelon Jones.
