Byrd's 1-2 Ponch; Lady Jackets advance

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La - The Byrd Lady Jackets won their first playoff game since 2009 by beating Ponchatoula 4-1 Monday evening.  Byrd was led by a strong performance on the mound from senior Sarah Long.  Long got the complete game win to go along with 11 strikeouts on the day.  She was also 2-2 on the plate.

The Lady Jackets come into the playoffs winning District 1-5A for the first time since 2011, when Long was just a freshman.  She says she didn't pitch in the playoffs that season and is happy to have the chance this time around.
