District or non-district, it isn’t mattering this season for Ruston High School’s baseball team.
After sweeping a three-game District 2-5A series against Monroe Ouachita High School last weekend, the Bearcats rolled past Minden 9-0 in a non-league game on Monday.
The win was No. 16 against four losses for Ruston, which will play a 2-5A contest at Bastrop Thursday starting at 6 p.m.
Garrett Soileau got the win and was followed on the mound by Tanner Frasier and Jacob Cobb against the Tide.

I guess it’s that time of year again, when occasional warm days make us start thinking and dreaming of summer. Also, they make the discussions on health (both allergies and weight loss) the main topics of conversation.
