Staff report

Mark it down. April 22, 2022 was a great day for Riverside Academy athletics.

Within the span of just a few hours, the baseball team, softball team and track team all celebrated victories and, in doing so, extended their seasons.

On the baseball field, the Rebels celebrated Senior Day, honoring senior players Andrew Jung and Kayon Brumfield, along with their families, at the the final home game of the season. But once the game against Lusher Charter School began, the Rebels were all business.

Junior Luke Hymel certainly was as he pitched a complete game no-hitter, walking two batters and striking out 14 as the Rebels beat the Lions, 2-0. And it was the seniors  who drove in the two runs, Jung with a bases loaded single to score Thomas Mazzella in the third and Brumfield with a single to score Brennan Maus in the sixth. The win helped secure the Rebels (19-13) a spot in the Division IV playoffs. They will play Ascension Catholic in a best of three game series. The first game is Friday, April 29 at 6 p.m. at La La Regina Field in Donaldsonville.  Game Two will be played Saturday, April 30 at noon, with an if-necessary game to follow.

Meanwhile, just a few yards away, the Lady Rebels softball team was making reservations for a trip to the State Tournament in Broussard with a 9-5 quarterfinal win over No. 6 Cedar Creek. The Lady Rebels did it with five home runs, two by Camryn Loving. Ava Fernandez, Corrin Cashio, and Alonah Felton also hit dingers, giving the team a whopping total of 58 on the season. Riverside (29-6), the No. 3 seed, advances to the semifinals where they will take on No. 2 Calvary Baptist on Friday, April 29 at St. Julien Park in Broussard. The time has not yet been set.

A little farther down the road in Metairie, the Riverside Track and Field Team was competing in the District Track Meet at St. Martin’s Episcopal School.  Both the girls and boys placed third overall in the meet and qualified several athletes for the Regional Meet to be held Thursday, April 28 at Joe Yenni Stadium in Metairie.
