East Ascension senior Austin Todd takes a swing in a game earlier this season. Todd and his Spartans teammates picked up an 8-4 win this week over District 6-5A foe Hahnville.

After Dutchtown gave East Ascension its fifth loss in District 6-5A play last week, Spartans coach Wayne Grenfell said his team needed a win to get back back on track.

That win came this week when the Spartans rallied to claim an 8-4 win over Hahnville.

After taking a 3-0 lead in the third inning, Hahnville put up four runs in the fourth. East Ascension then added five unanswered runs to take the victory.

East Ascension senior Alec Singletary (3-3) picked up the win on the mound.

Cody Daffron finished 2-for-3 with 2 RBIs, Chris Sanchez went 3-for-3 with an RBI and Austin Todd tallied two doubles on 2-for-3 hitting.

The Spartans, like the rest of the area teams, are hoping to finish strong as they head into the second half of the district schedule.
