Bulldogs’ pitching keeps hot streak going in district

ACHS’ sophomore Cole Amedee pitches a win in his first season start against East Iberville last week.

After leading 6-0 through three innings, the Ascension Catholic Bulldogs baseball team knew it pretty much had the best of White Castle and it’s undefeated district record wouldn’t be tarnished. The Bulldogs won 11-0 and the best part about the win was that the team used a first time starter on the mound, pitcher Landon Clifton.

“It’s always nice to get a couple of wins under your belt,” head coach Todd Landry said.

With Clifton picking up the win over White Castle, first time starter Cole Amedee got the “W” the day before over East Iberville, both giving AC’s starters a break on the mound.

“It was great to see both of those guys get their first starts and they both did well,” Landry said. “That’s a very good look at the future for Ascension Catholic baseball. Both of those guys are going to contribute to the upcoming years.”

Amedee led the Bulldogs to a 23-4 win over East Iberville, with the Bulldogs recording 13 runs in the bottom of the third inning.

Landry said starting Clifton and Amedee is critical in this time of year so he could try to give his top guys some rest.

“And it’s nice to be able to have some young guys like that to be able to come out and keep things going in the right direction,” Landry said. “Our top three pitchers got a good break this week.”

The Bulldogs next host St. John on April 22 for it’s last district game of the season.
