Softball: John Curtis, Hahnville take convincing wins Tuesday
Area Prep Softball Report for Wednesday, March 15
John Curtis Christian has been a dominant softball program for several years. The Lady Patriots have won two straight Division I state championships and have won seven state titles in the last 10 seasons.
Their elite ways appear to be on display again in 2023.
Tuesday, John Curtis drilled a good St. Charles Catholic team 14-3 at River Ridge.
Leigha Carter put the Lady Patriots on top in the first inning with a two-run single and Curtis never looked back, playing add-on the rest of the way.
Jasmine Roach, Emma Kruse, Gabby Miller and Gabby Fabacher each drove in runs in a big fourth inning.
Madison Laiche picked up the win for the Lady Patriots, allowing three runs on five hits. Laiche struck out five and walked no one.
The win was the fourth straight for John Curtis (17-3). The Lady Patriots return to action Friday at Walker at 4 p.m.
The Comets (10-4) will host Archbishop Chapelle Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
In a District 7-5A contest, Hahnville took down H.L. Bourgeois 13-3 at Gray in a game shortened to six innings by the mercy rule.
Hahnville scored single runs in the first four innings to take a 4-0 lead before the Braves scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth to make it 4-3. The Tigers broke it open with six runs in the fifth inning to take a 10-3 lead and finished it with three in the top of the sixth inning.
Adeline Bertrand and Lauren Crochet led a 10-hit attack with two hits and three RBI each while Brianna Keller had two hits and two RBI for Hahnville.
Both teams return to district action Thursday.
