The Lady Gators headed north and pulled off a clean 3-0 sweep to run its win streak to 11 games. Two nail-biters were wrapped around a blowout win as the Gators improved to 24-2 on the year. 

Game one was a colossal battle between 5A power Airline and its fireball pitcher Rebecca Chaffin, who is an LSU commit. 

Chaffin didn’t disappoint as she struck out 15 Gator batters, but it was the Gators who had the last chomp in a 3-1 comeback win.

Alyssa Romano matched Chaffin inning for inning, racking up eight strikeouts, while walking none.  

After the Vikings scored first, the Gators went to work. A clutch RBI double from Kennedy Page was all Romano and the Lady Gators needed to seal the victory. 

The Gators added an insurance run in the seventh, and Romano struck out two of the final three batters for the victory.  

Game two saw the Lady Gators end the drama early, jumping on defending 2A state champ Mangham for four first-inning runs en route to a 16-1 victory.  

Taylor Tidwell led the way with a home run and three RBIs, while Madison Marchand, Dionne Templet, Brooke Romano and Payton Granier all had two RBIs in the game. 

Game three saw St. Amant go down big to West Ouachita early on, just to rally and end the game on a walkoff hit by Templet.  

WOHS struck early and often vs Romano. A couple of walks and a pair of home rums saw the Chiefs bolt out to a 4-0 lead.  

The Gators came storming back with six runs of its own in the bottom half of the inning, and they later stretched their lead to 9-4. 

Tidwell homered and Alyssa Romano, Brooke Romano and Dionne Templet all had multiple hits with RBIs.  

Romano battled through fatigue, and as WOHS tied the score at 9-9, she dug deep to retire the Chiefs in order to shut them down in the seventh.

Chandler Guedry threw out a Chief runner attempting to steal third, while Templet drove an 0-1 pitch into left field to score the Gators’ runner for the walkoff win.
