The Lake Arthur High School Lady Tigers made Senior Night 2009 a pleasurable experience for fans, players and supporters alike, blasting the hapless Vinton High School Lady Lions by a final score of 16-6 on Tuesday, April 7, 2009 at the Field of Dreams Softball Park in Lake Arthur.
In what could be termed as a total team effort, the Lady Tigers exploded at the plate against Vinton pitching, which included home runs hit by Tori Touchet and Morgan Benoit.
The outcome was a glorious experience for outgoing seniors Erin Benoit and Paris LeBlanc, as the two four-year lettermen went out in style before adoring fans who came to honor them for their dedicated service time as Lady Tiger softball members.
Every Lake Arthur player contributed at the plate and in the field, as the Lady Tigers completely dismantled a battered and bruised visiting Vinton squad.
The win was the second District 5-2A conquest for Lake Arthur, as they improved to 2-5 in the league for the season.
The winning pitcher was sophomore Kadie Bonin, who went the distance for her third win of the season.
The Lady Tigers still have a pair of district games scheduled against the Kinder Yellow Jackets before their season concludes for 2009.
