LSUA Generals’ Top 5 Plays of the 2023 season
ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - This week, the KALB Sports team will reveal the top five moments of the LSUA 2023 season.
#5 - LSUA baseball sweeping the Oklahoma City Stars
Moment number five on the season is when the Generals went on to sweep the Oklahoma City Stars in the season opener. The Stars started the season as one of the top teams in the NAIA, and LSUA just won the Red River Athletic Conference Championship the year before. Things went well for the Generals that weekend, outscoring the Stars 34-13 in the series. Another Bright spot was Blasie Foote, he had a total of nine RBI’s including six of them in game two against OKC.
#4 - LSUA’s basketball rivalry with LCU
The number four play goes to the LSUA basketball team. LSUA and LCU games came down to the wire in both regular season matchups, and it was the Generals coming away with the win both times. The Generals beat their cross-town rival twice in the regular season behind Kashie Natt, who scored over 20 points in both meetings.
#3 - Martin-Hardwick beats LCU on a layup
In what was the biggest home game for first-year head coach Billy Perkins, his point guard, Danna Martin-Hartwick, made sure it would end in a win. In overtime, down one against their rivals, Louisiana Christian, with time running down, Hartwick drove and got the layup to drop for the win. That thrilling victory was part of a five-game winning streak for the Generals, the longest of the season and a statement win to kickstart the Billy Perkins era.
#2 - LSUA baseball winning three games in 24 hours in RRAC Tournament
In 2022, the LSUA baseball team won KALB’s award for the best athletic moment after winning the RRAC Championship. This year, the Generals’ run in Sterlington makes another appearance. After splitting the first two games of the tournament, the Generals faced the daunting task of having to fight through the elimination bracket to keep their season alive. The Generals won three games over the span of 24 hours including games against Louisiana Christian and nationally ranked LSU-Shreveport. Jordan Ardoin was the offensive spark during that stretch driving in six runs on six hits.
#1 - Julien Kliebert diving catch against OLLU
