Cathedral wins region

NATCHEZ — The Cathedral Green Wave knew what was at stake in its game against West Lincoln Thursday night at Chester Willis Field.

A win and Cathedral would be the Region 7-1A champion. A loss meant the Green Wave could end up finishing either second or third in region play.

Collin Hammons pitched a one-hitter to go with seven strikeouts and three walks to lead Cathedral to a 10-0 win over the Bears in six innings to wrap up the region championship.

“Collin had another good outing for us. He got ahead in the count a lot early in the game,” Green Wave head coach Craig Beesley said. “When he gets ahead in the count, we play good defense behind him.”

And the Green Wave played very well in all three phases of the game. In addition to Hammons’ complete-game performance, Cathedral had 10 hits and committed zero errors.

Tyler Morrison went 2-for-2 while Austin Chauvin was 2-for-3 with a triple and Hammons helped his own cause by going 2-for-3 at the plate.

“I was pleased with Austin hitting the ball well. He’s had three good games in a row at the plate,” Beesley said. “Caleb Upton (who went 2-for-4) has been swinging the bat all season and he continued to stay hot. We had five different batters that had multiple hits.”

The Green Wave broke the game open by scoring four runs in the bottom of the third inning to go up 6-0 and ended the game early with three runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Cathedral (13-5, 5-1) finishes its regular season next Monday when it plays at Franklin County. The junior varsity game starts at 5 p.m. and will be followed by the varsity game at 7 p.m.

Avoyelles Charter 12, Monterey 8

MONTEREY, La. — The Monterey Wolves were looking to get back in the playoff hunt with a win at home over Avoyelles Charter.

Instead, the Vikings solidified their postseason chances by defeating Monterey Thursday afternoon in an LHSAA District 6-B game. Avoyelles Charter is still in third place behind Oak Hill and Glenmora and improved to 5-4 in district play while Monterey fell to fifth place in the district standings at 2-7.

Monterey (7-12 overall) will host Harrisonburg in its District 6-B finale next Tuesday at 4 p.m.
