On an annual basis, Lester Smith has a solid program at West St. John.

His Lady Rams play tough competition and are always a factor in the playoffs.

The Lady Rams led 11-7 after one quarter and broke the game open by pitching a shutout in the second quarter, outscoring the Warriors 13-0 to take a 24-7 lead at halftime. The lead grew to 36-12 going to the fourth quarter.
