COACH I MEMORIAL TOURNEY ROUNDUP
Both St. Amant and East Ascension picked up a pair of wins in the Coach I Memorial Tournament played recently at Butch Gore Park and hosted by St. Amant. The annual tournament is named in honor of former St. Amant softball coach Jimmy Iturralde, who led the Gators to their first state championship in 2002.
After dropping a 3-2 decision to Beau Chene on Friday, the Gators swept two games on Saturday including a two-out, walk off three-run home run by junior Kaylie Dufour to down Lutcher 3-2.
Earlier in the day, the Gators took care of ACHS 9-1 behind Rylee Rossi’s three hits and Alyssa Romano’s two hits and two RBIs. Naylie Rodriquez added a three-run home run over the Lady Bulldogs.
East Ascension opened the tourney with a 6-2 win over Covington on Friday and then out-slugged ACHS 13-7 in the morning game on Saturday.
The Spartans fell to Lutcher 4-3 in the late game on Saturday when the Bulldogs scored the winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Eight teams participated in the two-day tourney including ACHS, Beau Chene, Covington, Live Oak, Lutcher and St. Joseph’s along with the two local teams, St. Amant and East Ascension.
