Kentucky's undefeated streak may have come to an end on Saturday night, but the St. Amant Lady Gators' run is still going strong.

After beating St. Joseph's Academy in a double-header and following it up with another easy win over McKinley, St. Amant cruised to a perfect 21-0 record. The Lady Gators won the three games by a combined score of 54-3.

The three-game tear started on Tuesday with a double-header against St. Joseph's. St. Amant took both games without having to go the full seven innings.

In game one, the Lady Gators led 1-0 heading into the third inning, but things quickly got out of hand as they scored eight runs.

In the fourth, they ended the contest by scoring six more to take the 15-0 win.

Gabby Sharp improved to 16-0 as she no-hit the Red Stickers in four innings of work.

Kara Gremillion continued her torrid pace as she went 2-4 with two home runs and five RBIs.

It didn't get much better for St. Joseph's in the next game.

St. Amant scored five in the first inning to take a comfortable 5-1 lead. By the time they reached the fourth inning, they were up 10-1.

In the fourth, they officially ended the game with a seven-spot to take the contest, 17-2.

Kara Gremillion went 1-2 with another home run, and sister Kourtney Gremillion went 1-4 with four RBIs.

The Lady Gators finally ended the week with a thrashing of McKinley on Thursday evening. Once again, they only needed four innings.

St. Amant got four and five runs in the first two innings and headed into the fourth with a dominating 11-0 lead.

In the fourth, the Lady Gators erupted for 11 runs to take the victory, 22-1.

Once again, Sharp earned another victory and no-hit McKinley in the abbreviated win.

Bailey Bordelon and Pamela Carbo were both perfect from the plate. Bordelon went 4-4 with five RBIs, and Carbo was 3-3 with a homer and four RBIs.
