Rebels begin district play hosting Ruston
The West Monroe Rebel baseball team begins district play on Thursday hosting the Ruston Bearcats at Shelby Aulds Field.
The Rebels struggled early in the season but have began to find their footing by winning 3 of their last 5 outings.
West Monroe, coming off a state runner-up finish a year ago, has seen Colton Anderson, Cayden Pierce, Chase DeJean, Tom Biggs, Carson Jones and Marc Newman, among others, have all swung a hot bat at different times in the last two weeks, while DeJean and Jonathan Snuggs have brought life to the mound after some rough weekends.
Ruston is one of the Rebels’ longest running rivals on the field. The Bearcats (9-8) have won five of their last eight games including wins over Haughton (10-2) and Evangel (4-3) in the West Monroe Sports City Classic last week.
Ruston followed that with a 11-10 win over Neville on Monday.
The teams will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday at West Monroe before heading to Ruston to finish the series on Saturday at 1 p.m.
