The Brusly Lady Panthers remained dominant after wins in their first two district games and three games in a Shreveport tournament over the weekend.
Brusly (12-2, 2-0) breezed past E.D. White and St. James in the first two 7-3A outings of the 2013 season, and a sweep in the Byrd Tournament.
“We’re playing really well,” coach Beau Bouvier said. “We’ve had good pitching, hitting and defense – everyone is playing well.”
Brusly hosts its annual tournament this weekend at Alexander Park. Bouvier still sees room for improvement.
“We’re still committing errors – there’s always stuff you can improve on,” he said. “We’re playing well, but I hope we’re not peaking yet. We still have a lot of games to play.”
