It's safe to say Doyle, Holden and Maurepas enter the Louisiana High School Athletic Association state softball tournament with a bit of unfinished business on their plates.
Four softball teams will carry the Livingston Parish banner to Sulphur for the 2017 State Tournament next week. Live Oak, Doyle, Holden and Maurepas are all returning to the event and will make for a busy two and perhaps three or four days for parish softball fans.
MAUREPAS -- McKenna Lessard threw a one-hitter with 7 strikeouts as Maurepas scored a 10-0 win over Starks in the regional round of the Class C playoffs on Wednesday.
CROWLEY -- Maurepas pitchers McKenna Lessard and Kaylynn Vicknair combined on a three-hitter as the Lady Wolves scored a 7-0 win over Northside Christian on Tuesday.
HOLDEN -- Holden and Maurepas will be playing in the postseason in their respective classifications shortly, but there was a bit of a playoff vibe in the air when the teams squared off on April 6.
MAUERPAS -- Mandeville scored a pair of two-out runs in the 3rd inning and extended the lead the following inning with an offensive breakout to down Maurepas 6-1 on Wednesday.
MAUREPAS -- Maurepas pitcher Emma Gautreau was perfect in the second game of a doubleheader sweep of Grand Isle on Friday.
MAUREPAS -- Maurepas picked up a pair of one-run wins, defeating Albany 7-6 on March 23 and Ascension Christian 3-2 on Saturday.
Olivia Lackie struck out 14 in a complete game and had an RBI single in the first inning to lead Holden to a 1-0 win over Ponchatoula on March 22, while Holden erupted for 10 runs in the first inning to spark a 21-1 win over Mount Hermon on March 21.
FRENCH SETTLEMENT -- Jackson's LeBourgeois' RBI single in the bottom of the ninth lifted French Settlement to a 6-5 win over Maurepas on Tuesday.
