Area teams in middle of district schedules
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.

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.
