Zachary High’s Lady Broncos competed in the 2015 North vs. South softball tournament at Zachary Youth Park on Friday and Saturday. Usually, the Ascension Parish-hosted tournament is played with games rotating between St. Amant, Dutchtown and East Ascension, but this year, Zachary Youth Park’s turfed quad allowed the teams to play in one place over the two days.
Zachary coach Leslie Efferson and the Lady Broncos defeated West Monroe 8-1 on Friday and Ruston 9-1 on Saturday.
Teams representing the south were from ZHS, St. Amant, St. Thomas More, Mount Carmel Academy, North Vermilion and Walker.
From the north, high school teams included C.E. Byrd, Haughton, Ruston, West Ouachita and West Monroe.
Up next, the Lady Broncos host Archbishop Hannan in a non-district game at noon on Saturday at Zachary Youth Park.
The ZHS team returns to district play at 5 p.m. April 9, when they host Walker High School.
