RHS holds off Rebels
Balanced hitting helped Ruston High School hold off a late rally by West Monroe and take an 11-9 District 2-5A baseball victory at the Bearcats’ diamond on Thursday night.
The Bearcats (20-4, 4-0) featured two hits each from Ivan Wilson, Jr., Garrett Hipp, B.J. Findley and Lain Kranz along with multi-RBI productions from Ben LeBlanc, Hipp and Findley to win the first of three weekend games from the Rebels (14-10, 5-2).
A single game between the two rivals is set for tonight at West Monroe starting at 6 p.m. and then a final contest will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, at the RHS field.
