Baseball Bears Come Out On Top Of Tough Road Trip
The CHS baseball team competed in the Teurlings Catholic tournament this past weekend in the Lafayette area. The event welcomed a strong contingent of top programs from all classifications in south Louisiana.
The Bears got off to an exciting start on Thursday, with a 1-0 win over 5A Acadiana. Austin Andrishok tossed a no-hitter for the Bears and was a seventh-inning walk away from hurling a perfect game. The senior lefty threw 59 strikes in his 82 pitch effort while striking out 5. Andrishok threw 15 first pitch strikes, getting ahead of the majority of Wrecking Ram hitters.
CHS scored its lone run in the top of fifth-inning. Jackson Thomas doubled to start the inning, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on Jacob Wax’s groundout.
On Friday, the Bears were stymied by St. Thomas More, 13-3. Grant Segar was the bright spot with two hits for the Bears.
CHS bounced back on Saturday in a doubleheader sweep that included wins over Opelousas Catholic (11-0) and Catholic-New Iberia (3-2). Grant Segar threw a one hitter against OC in the 11-0 win. Segar struck out five and allowed only two walks. Bryan Bergeron was 3-4 with 3 RBI; Brennan Lambert was 2-4 with 3 RBI; and Jackson Thomas and Brady Hebert each collected two hits in the Bears’ offensive onslaught.
In the nightcap of the tournament, the Bears won a tough one run game over CHSNI, 3-2. The Bears picked up a quality start from Brock Perry’s in four innings of work. Nick Judice, fresh off of playing in Thursday’s semifinal basketball game, struck out two Panthers in two innings of relief work to grab the win. Brady Hebert, who led the Bears at the plate with two hits, picked up the save by tossing the seventh-inning.
The Bears get back to work on Tuesday, March 13, when they travel to North Park to face the Denham Springs Yellow Jackets. First pitch is at 5 p.m.
