Calvary Baptist Wins Division IV Baseball Crown; Rain-Delayed Select Games Resume Sunday

by Hunter Bower // Owner


BROUSSARD — For the fifth time in school history, Calvary Baptist took home a state baseball championship following the dramatic finish to Saturday’s Division IV title game in which the Cavaliers outlasted Ouachita Christian, 12-4, in extra innings.

Calvary enjoyed a 4-1 lead as both squads entered the bottom of the seventh inning. Ouachita Christian was to not go away without a fight and used a three-run outing to tie the ballgame and send the championship into extra frames.

With new found energy, the Eagles hoped to outlast their opponent in overtime but the Cavaliers exploded for eight runs to take a commanding 12-4 lead that eventually held and led them to their first state title since the 2019 season.

Landon Fontenot was named the game’s Most Outstanding Player after having worked 6.1 innings and gave up two runs on three hits and struck out six batters.

Due to inclement weather throughout the weekend, the LHSAA Select Baseball Tournament schedule has been altered with games now being played on Sunday and Monday.

Division V’s state title game will restart at 2 p.m. on Monday with Claiborne Christian leading Grace Christian, 2-0, in the fourth inning.
