Comets Fall in Championship Game

Comets Finish State Runner Upsbtitle

LAPLACE — The bus ride home from Sulphur was bittersweet for the St. Charles Catholic Lady Comets softball team.

After defeating formidable opponent Archbishop Hannan 4-1 Saturday afternoon, the Lady Comets fell to Parkview Baptist later that day, suffering an 11-1 loss after seven innings.

Head coach Ty Monica said his team would’ve had to play a nearly flawless game to top Parkview Baptist, a team that boasts nine power hitters and multiple double-digit wins.

Pylar Zeringue went 2-for-2 at bat and brought in St. Charles Catholic’s only run.

SCC’s most impressive play came earlier in the day, when the girls found redemption against Hannan following a 10-2 loss earlier in the season. Jade Brady pitched seven successful innings and came in clutch at the plate with a 3-run homer to center field to take the semifinal win.

Exiting the weekend in second place wasn’t a cause for sadness, Monica said. The bittersweet feeling came from realizing a vital portion of the team had put on their Comets jerseys for the last time.

“After the game, it wasn’t so much disappointment about the loss, but knowing we’ve got seven seniors we have to say goodbye to,” Monica said.  “Those girls put in a lot of time and effort into the program and left it a better place. I told them to hold their chins up high and wear it proud. I think they did exactly that.”

Seniors Zeringue, Brady, Caroline Julian, Grace Mohon, Jori Bryant, Haley St. Martin and Zoe Zaidain guided the team through the ups and downs of the year.

The girls mastered balancing academics and athletics, attaining impressive ACT scores while bringing in runs on the softball field.

“If they’re not the ‘winningest’ class in St. Charles history, they’ve got to be pretty close to it,” Monica said. “They have a lot to be proud of. I became a better coach during the season because of the girls that were around me. Somebody told me a long time ago that if you surround yourself with good people, you’re destined to have success.”

Next year’s squad will be young, Monica said, and he anticipates building the team around rising seniors Kelsie Williams and Brooke St. Pierre.

With the LHSAA Division II runner-up trophy in hand, the girls savored the excitement that came from experiencing a championship game alongside a supportive crowd.

Semifinals: Comets Defeat Hannan in Thriller

SULPHUR - Jade Brady's three-run home run in the top of the seventh inning helped push third seeded St. Charles defeat second seeded Hannan 4-1 and into the Division II championship.

"From the very beginning of the game, we knew Hannan was a good team," Brady said. "They are a lot like us and we knew we had to fight right down to the very end. I felt it as soon as the ball hit the bat. I knew it was going out."

The Comets will take on top seeded Parkview Baptist in the Division II championship later at 7:30 p.m.

Parkview advanced to the championship with a 12-10 victory against (4) St. Thomas More.

After taking a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, Hannan tied the game in the second.

Both teams had their chances to added offense, each loading the bases, but unable to convert.

"Hannan is a great team, having been here year after year with rings to prove it," St. Charles coach Ty Monica said. "We played them earlier in the year and they really took it to us. I didn't think we were playing our best softball then, but in this game we did enough to win."

Hannan won that meeting 10-2 in La Place.

The Comets improved to 26-5 while Hannan concluded its season with a mark of 26-5.

Quarterfinals: Comets Defeat ED White

SULPHUR - It took a while for the St. Charles bats to get going, but in the meantime, Jade Brady just took things upon herself to advance the Comets.

Brady pitched a complete-game, six-inning one-hitter and struck out 12, as the third seed marched on with an 11-1 victory over 11th-seeded ED White in a Division II quarterfinals game at Frasch Park on Thursday (April 26).

In fact, the only hit Brady allowed came off the bat of Scout Blades, who knocked in Maddie Gros, as the Cardinals (12-14) took a 1-0 advantage. However, that lead was short-lived, as the Comets came right back as leadoff hitter Caroline Julian led off the bottom of the first by walking and scored when ED White pitcher Morgan Rodrigue issued three more free passes in the inning.

St. Charles (20-5) scored one run in each the second and third before coming up with eight in the bottom of the sixth to induce the mercy rule. The final three runs scored on a bases-clearing, three-run double by Jori Bryant.

Grace Mohon was 3-for-3 with a double and two RBIs for the Comets, who advance to play second-seeded Hannan here Saturday on Field 20 at 2 p.m. in the semifinals.
