Bad weather gets best of baseball schedule

The LaSalle Tigers were only able to get in 4 innings of baseball this past week as terrible weather set in and cancelled games. The Tigers were able to host the Jena Giants, but in the fourth inning with the Giants leading 4-3 the bottom fell out and the game was suspended.

The guys will look to bounce back this week as they will continue district 3-1A play as they host Block for a double header in this week in Olla. That will wrap up the district play for the Tigers and the Playoffs are just around the corner.

LaSalle Tigers drop to 7-1 in District 3-1A standings

The LaSalle Tigers would take a couple on the chin this last week and one of those losses would be in district play. The Tigers still sit in the #9 position in the state power points and 9-7 overall. This would put them one game behind St Mary’s in district standings, but with two games with St. Mary’s coming up this week that could all change soon. Recap of Last Week

Jena Giants cited for success

What Jena High School Head Coach Jay Roark has done with the football program has been nothing short of spectacular. Since he has been hired in 2012, every year, the Giants have just gotten better and better. They have improved as a program so much that they are one of the top programs in the Cenla area. Since he has been there, you can see the development as the Giants finished 5-5 in 2012, 5-6 in 2013, and 6-5 in 2014 to dramatically improving over the last four seasons at 11-1 in 2015, 9-3 in 2016, 10-1 in 2017, and 9-2 in 2018. It also helps that the program has had some of its best talent to go through in nearly a decade. Players like TE Parker Fink (Northwestern State), WR JaRay Jenkins (LSU), QB Lamar Farris (Trinity Valley Community College), etc. have all signed at the college level during that time.
