|Mangham Claims District Championship|
The Mangham Dragons (21-7, 5-0) won a pair of games last week and are once again champions of district 4-1A for the 2009 season.
An 11-2 win over the Delhi Charter Gators on Thursday night gave Mangham another piece of hardware to add to the trophy case of an already legendary baseball program.
Even before that, Mangham beat Oak Grove 7-3 on Monday night to make it really hard for everyone else and made the game against Delhi Charter a must win for the Gators.
It was to be the Dragons night though and with the non-district games left before the playoffs, Mangham is poised to make a big splash in the Class 1A playoffs.
Josh Wilson is batting a solid .500 on the season. Jason Jarrett is second on the team in batting with a .400 batting average.
Karl Wiggers is not far behind with an impressive .375 batting average on the season for Mangham.
On the pitcher's mound, The 1.75 ERA of Jared Dye leads the way for the Dragons. While the offense has stayed hot as well, the pitching staff has been lights out during the undefeated run through district 4-1A play.
Coaches will meet in Baton Rouge early next week to vote on seedings for the playoffs that will begin next Friday night with the higher seed hosting a first round game.
It is a lock that the Dragons, ranked third in the state polls, will receive a first round home game regardless of the week's results mostly because the team has already wrapped up the district championship.
Mangham will step way up in classification when they host the Franklin Parish Patriots (14-15) of Class 4A this week.
Mangham will then host Oak Grove on Thursday night to finish the district 4-1A schedule. Oak Grove has this game on the radar not just to avenge the loss to the Dragons last week, but also give themselves a chance at squeezing into the Class 1A playoff picture.
Next Monday night will mark the end of the regular season for Mangham as they will host Choudrant. Choudrant (18-7) has consistently been one of the top programs in Class B over the past 10 years and is ranked seventh in the state this week.
