Baseball Bears Hit The Road Against Some Tough Competition

Catholic High has never been one to shy away from a challenge and the baseball program stood up to that mantra this past weekend.  The Bears traveled to the Lake Charles area for a tournament with four games against arguably four of the top baseball programs in the state.

The Bears lost an extra inning contest on Thursday, 4-3, to Sam Houston, but rebounded with a 2-1 win on Friday night at nationally ranked Barbe. Saturday proved to be tough for CHS as the Bears dropped one to undefeated Sulphur 9-1, and one to Acadiana 3-1. Against Barbe, LSU-Eunice bound seniors Austin Andrishok got the win and Brady Hebert picked up the save. Zach Ordeneaux homered in the win.

Seventh year head coach Brad Bass commented on the team’s efforts. “If there is a tougher pre-district tournament in the state of Louisiana I would be surprised. We needed to face some of the best programs in the state. The good thing is, we learned we have a lot of things to work on and need to improve offensively. We will play a very good program and defending 5A state champion Central on Tuesday.”

First pitch for the Central game is at 5 p.m. The Bears will host at Grizzly Field.
