Townsend Homes starts summer season

LAPLACE — After a severely abbreviated spring season, it is finally time for St. Charles Catholic to swing the bat.

The SCC Townsend Homes summer baseball team warmed up for the summer last week with ball games against the Ponsteins (Holy Cross) and Noranda (Lutcher).

Townsend Homes Gold Team lost 12-4 in a battle against the Ponsteins on June 16. The Townsend Homes Blue Team took an 11-6 defeat against the Ponsteins.

Wednesday’s game against Noranda had a better ending for the Gold Team. A big second-inning led to a decisive 9-1 victory. The Blue team couldn’t catch up to Noranda and took a 5-3 loss.
