The St. Amant Lady Gators continued to assert themselves last week as they went a perfect 6-0 to up their record to 12-0 overall.

After going undefeated in the St. Amant Invitational, they played a makeup game against Mount Carmel last Monday. The game was originally scheduled for the week before, but the nasty weather led to a postponement.

The Lady Gators closed out a 6-5 victory.

The next day, they officially opened up district action with a home game against McKinley. As expected, St. Amant didn't need all seven innings to claim a win.

They thrashed the Lady Panthers 18-0 in just two innings after getting 14 runs in the first.

Gabby Sharp got her seventh win as she no-hit McKinley in the two innings of work.

Kourtney Gremillion had a big day as she went 2-2 with a home run and two RBIs. Kara Gremillion went 2-2 with two more RBIs.

After the win, St. Amant went on the road for a much stiffer challenge. This time, they played perennial 3A power Brusly.

The Lady Gators got off to a hot start as they scored two in the top of the first and then extended the lead to 3-0 in the third.

Brusly responded with two in the fifth to cut the deficit to 3-2, but St. Amant scored a run in each of the final two innings to pull out the 5-2 victory.

Sharp picked up the win from the circle. From the plate, Kourtney Gremillion had another huge outing. She had a homer and three RBIs.

Taylor Tidwell went 2-3 with an RBI, and Kara Gremillion went 2-3 with a run scored.

St. Amant then earned another easy district victory as they clobbered Woodlawn, 23-0. The Lady Gators actually got off to a slow start as they only led 2-0 heading into the third.

But in that inning, St. Amant exploded for a ridiculous 21 runs.

Kara Gremillion showed why she's a UL-Lafayette signee as she belted out two grand slams--giving her an amazing eight RBIs. Tidwell went 3-3 with a homer and two RBIs.

The Lady Gators ended the six-win week with two more victories in the Sulphur Spring Class '15 Tournament over the weekend.

St. Amant crushed Jena, 11-3 in the opening game.

They put the game out of reach early as they scored five in the first and four more in the second.

Sharp earned her 10th win of the young season, and Kara Gremillion continued to do big things from the batter's box. She went 3-5 with a home run and an RBI.

Pamela Carbo went 2-2 with two RBIs, and Rylee Langlois went 2-4 with three runs batted in.

St. Amant ended the tournament with a dominant 10-1 win over Bastrop. The game was called after five innings due to lightning. The evening games were cancelled.

Bastrop hung around early on as the Lady Gators only led 1-0 after two but in the third, St. Amant broke things wide open as they exploded for four runs to put their lead at 5-0.

They easily rolled to the 10-1 win. Kara Gremillion actually started the game from the circle. It was only her second start of the season.

Besides just giving up three hits, she went 3-4 with two RBIs from the plate.

Langlois went 2-2 with a homer and two RBIs, and Abby McKey went 2-3 with three runs batted in.

And to put the icing on top, the Lady Gators crushed parish and district rival East Ascension on Monday evening, 12-4.

With the 13-0 record, St. Amant will continue district play this week. They'll have a another huge parish clash with Dutchtown on Thursday evening.
