Lady Wildcats extend win streak to 5 games
The Destrehan softball team continued their hot start by winning all three of their games in the Catfish Classic, which improved their record to 10-3 on the season.

The Lady Wildcats began the tourney with a 1-0 win in extra innings against Assumption. Pitcher Ashley Bolin was stellar in the shutout, picking up 11 strikeouts and allowing only two hits. Michelle Haydel led Destrehan from the plate, going 2-for-3 with two stolen bases.

The Lady Wildcats were much more impressive offensively in their second tourney win, beating Dominican 5-3.

This time, Abbie Hall picked up the win for Destrehan and gave up only two hits and no earned runs while striking out one in seven innings. Krista Robles led Destrehan from the plate, going 4-for-4 and scoring two runs and stealing a base. Haydel went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases while her twin sister, Nicole Haydel, finished with two hits and scored a run.

Destrehan remained perfect for the tournament after knocking off Morgan City 6-1.

Hall pitched the first five innings for Destrehan and gave up zero earned runs while striking out three. Bolin came on in relief for the final two frames and recorded four strikeouts while giving up one hit.

Hall and Bolin also took care of things from the plate, with both players going 1-for-3 with doubles. Hall finished with two RBIs while Bolin drove in one run.

Destrehan head coach Kenny Montz was impressed with his squad’s performance during the Catfish Classic.

"I thought we did a good job of battling through and competing all three games," he said. "Overall we struggled the entire weekend with the bats, but made up for it by playing very good defense and getting outstanding pitching."

Montz added that it was the first time in his three seasons as head coach that Destrehan swept a tournament.

"This weekend was very big for us," he said. "We have now won five straight, we’re 10-3 overall and I feel that we have not peaked as a team yet. Hopefully, we are getting on a roll."
