|Mangham ready for playoff run|
The Mangham Dragons, a perpetual Class A baseball force, is anxious to take a tremendous regular season into the playoffs.
The Class 1A playoff bracket will be voted on by coaches during LHSAA meetings in Baton Rouge this week.
Mangham (23-7, 6-0) is almost a lock for a first round home game after another 20-plus win season and another undefeated run through district 4-1A.
"We are practicing well and playing well," Mangham head coach Scott Wilcher said. "We are just going to continue the routine we have done all season."
Mangham completed the sweep through the district schedule last Thursday evening with a 8-3 win over the Oak Grove Tigers.
Mangham had previously defeated Oak Grove 13-1 and 7-3 earlier in the 2009 campaign. The win was the tenth win in the last 11 games for Mangham.
Josh Wilson and Jeb Bryan each hit two home runs in the game. Karl Wiggers also went deep for the Dragons.
Wilson was also the winning pitcher for Mangham as he gave up just one run in five innings of work.
The Dragons have won five straight games since a minor set back to Ouachita Christian School of Monroe on April 11 that saw Mangham drop a 5-4 decision to the Eagles.
Mangham is currently ranked No.2 in the latest Louisiana Baseball Coach's Association poll.
Before claiming another district title in undefeated fashion against Oak Grove, Mangham also took down one of the areas other solid programs.
Mangham defeated Franklin Parish (15-16) by a score of 11-0 last Tuesday night to claim their third win over the Class 4A school this season.
Jared Dye was the winning pitcher after recording a one hit shutout against the Patriots. Josh Wilson hit a towering three-run homer in the game to pace the offensive onslaught.
Karl Wiggers also continued to swing the bat well and was 2-for-3 at the plate for Mangham.
The win was the 12th win of the season for Mangham against a team in a higher classification
