Since at least 2010, female hunter numbers in Louisiana have gone up, from 14,536 to 21,335 last year. That number could also increase by anywhere up to 3,267 because 3,267 license purchases were made last year with no gender confirmation.
All four District 5-1A teams earned playoffs berths, which came as no surprise to St. Edmund head softball coach Thomas David. St. Edmund (12-7. 1-4) will host No. 23 Northwood-Lena (11-14, 5-4) at 4 p.m. on Monday at Lady Jay Field.
The battle for the District 5-1A championship got tougher for St. Edmund on Wednesday as the Blue Jays split a doubleheader with False River Academy. St. Edmund (16-6, 3-1) won the first game 8-2, but fell 8-6 to the Gators (3-15, 1-3) in the finale.
