Airline youth lack experience, not confidence

Airline youth lack experience, not confidence

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER CITY, La - The high school baseball season is winding down in Louisiana and as usual it's a crowded race for the top of District 1-5A. Airline is one of the schools battling for the top spot and they are doing so without much experience.

With four sophomores starting in the field and even more on the mound, it's safe to say Airline has a very young baseball team. But what the Vikings lack in experience they make up for in confidence. The Vikings are certainly hoping that a tough early schedule pays off as the expectations are as high.

Airline is currently tied with Byrd for the district lead. They'll head to West Monroe to take on the Rebels Tuesday.
