SULPHUR – It’s harder to repeat as a champion than to win a title. The quest to unseat a champion is no picnic, either.
Thursday, May 1st, the sixth seeded Brusly Panthers baseball squad played in the first round of Class 3A playoffs at home against the number 27-seeded Patterson Lumberjacks.
Port Allen and Brusly coaches realize state championships will not be in the offering Saturday at the Class 3A track meet, but they’ll take all they can get from it.
Port Allen did not reach the playoffs, nor did the Pelicans win a district title or even finish with a winning record.
It doesn’t mean head coach Josh Laborde does not have high hopes about the next season.
The Pelicans ended the 2014 season 10-19 Saturday in an 18-2 rout over Broadmoor after three innings. A stolen base by B.J. McClay ushered in runs in the third frame.
