St. Amant continued to steam-roll through the district last week as they put up double-digits in two more dominating victories along with an additional blowout win in the non-district variety.

Dutchtown might have struggled with St. Joseph's Academy, but the Lady Gators didn't. They absolutely assaulted the Red Stickers--ending the game after four innings with an emphatic 18-0 win.

St. Amant scored five runs in three of the four innings.

Skylar Cook didn't allow a hit in the shortened outing and picked up her 13th win.

From the plate, Kara Gremillion was flawless as she went a perfect 4-4 with two RBIs. Ali DeLany went 3-4 with four RBIs, and Jordan Hartman went 2-4 with a game-high five RBIs.

The Lady Gators didn't let up in their next contest. On Thursday, they blasted McKinley 17-1 in just two and a half innings.

St. Amant scored nine in the first and eight in the second as Cook only allowed one hit and one run in her 14th victory of the season.

Gremillion continued her tear as she went 3-4 with three RBIs.

Madison Edmonston was perfect from the plate as she went 3-3 with three RBIs, Hartman went 2-3 with another game-high five RBIs and Carlie Whittington also went perfect at 3-3 with one RBI.

Finally, in a non-district make-up game, the Lady Gators blanked Lutcher 15-0 on Monday.

St. Amant blew the game wide open in the third when they scored six runs to stretch their lead to 11-0 before the game was finally stopped after four innings.

Gabrielle Sharp earned his ninth win of the year as she pitched the shutout while allowing just four hits.

Hartman went a perfect 3-3 with an RBI, and Kayla Braud went 2-3 with a home run and four runs batted in.

With the three overpowering performances, St. Amant improved their record to 23-2 overall and a perfect 7-0 in district play.

The Lady Gators will try to remain undefeated within the district on Thursday as they visit parish rival East Ascension. St. Amant barely escaped the Lady Spartans 7-6 when they played earlier this season.
