WA: Rosepine baseball went 4-0, picking up wins over Kinder, Pickering, Oakdale and St. Edmund. The Eagles outscored opponents 50-8.

Name a baseball player of the week.
WA: Oberlin’s Aiden Reed went 3-for-6 with a home run, three runs, two walks, a stolen base and three RBIs as the Tigers split a pair of District 4-1A games against Merryville and Gueydan.
RA: Senior Dawson Hebert pitched a complete game Thursday with 11 strikeouts and two walks to lead DeRidder to a 4-1 win over Leesville. He allowed three hits and the Wampus Cats’ lone run was unearned. DeRidder has won sixth consecutive games and had a key two-game series with Tioga this week in a battle for the top spot in District 3-4A.
Name a softball player of the week.
WA: Iowa outfielder Kamryn Broussard went 5-for-6 with a HR, three doubles and five RBIs in wins over Lake Charles College Prep and St. Louis. Broussard has 12 HRs.
RA: South Beauregard power-hitting baseman Morgan Eaves shows no signs of letting up. Eaves already owns the school career and single-season home run records and continues to add to that total. She added three round-trippers last week, one against Jennings and two versus Lake Charles College Prep to bring her season total to 14, plus 43 RBIs.
