GPMS’s score in 3D was 1497 and placed 29th out of 67 other elementary teams. Last year the team was 73 out of 180 elementary school teams in Bullseye.

Harrisonburg Bulldogs heads to state tourney

For the first time in 18 years, the #2 Harrisonburg Bulldog baseball team has a shot at the Louisiana State Championship. The Bulldogs will face #3 Summerfield at 2 p.m., Wednesday, on Field 37 in the semi-final game. The winner of this game will face the winner of the Simpson/Georgetown semi-final match-up, at 1 p.m. on Friday, May 11, on Field 37. In 2000, sophomore 2nd baseman Clay McGuffee didn’t realize he one day would be back on the coaching side. But on May 4, 2018, McGuffee’s high school baseball coach T

homas Sinclair sat and watched the Bulldog team punch their ticket to the State semi-finals in Sulphur after defeating Ebarb High School in the Quarterfinals. What is really neat for this small Class C school is that this comes just a little over a week after the Harrisonburg Lady Dawgs finished as State Runner Up at the Louisiana State Championship.

LaSalle Tigers fall in quarterfinalsl

The LaSalle Tigers went to Ferriday last Thursday afternoon as the number one ranked team in Class 1A baseball. They were prepared to take on Delta Charter in the quarterfinals of the state playoffs. The Tigers were sending to the mound, Eli Stringer, who was 11-0 on the year and looking to go 12-0.

The Tigers had defeated Delta Charter in the opening game of the season, 7-1; but Delta Charter had been on a roll as of late. The Storm would hold LaSalle scoreless through five innings and were able to get Eli to throw 85 pitches through three innings. The Storm would battle at the plate and did a great job of two strike hitting.

LaSalle Tigers are District Champions

By Greg Jones

 

The LaSalle Tigers have captured the 3-1A Baseball title that has eluded them since 2008. They did win the 1A State Championship last season, but these guys felt as if something was missing. According to the players I talked to they were over the moon about the State Title, but still had to tell everyone that they finished 3rd in 3-1A play. They felt as if they let some games slip away last year by losing to Logansport, Block, and St. Mary’s. This year would be different.

Jena Giants are District Champions

By Austin Whatley

 

The Jena Giants came into this past week with two big opportunities. With one win over Caldwell the Giants would be the 3-3A District Champions. The other opportunity would be if the Giants could win at least 4 of their 5 remaining games then they would set a new school record with their 24th win.

The Giants would also have a busy week as they would play 5 games, as they would prepare themselves for the playoffs. The Giants came into the week with an undefeated district record and would be playing Caldwell twice. The Spartans had 2 district losses and had to beat Jena both times to become district champions.

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.
