UPDATE: Lady Demons lose to Beau Chene, end fine season


FHS lost to Beau Chene 4-3 Saturday evening, bringing to an end an excellent season for the Lady Demons softball team. They ended their season just short of making it to the state Class 4A softball tournament at Sulphur, LA.

Look for complete details and photos in the May 24 edition of The Era-Leader.


The Franklinton High School Lady Demons defeated Franklin Parish Tuesday evening and now will advance to the next round against Beau Chene on Saturday at 4:30 p.m.

With the win over Franklin Parish, the Lady Demons are in the final 8 teams in the state Class 4A softball playoffs. If they win the Beau Chene game Saturday, they will be in the final four and will advance to the state tournament in Sulphur next week.

The FHS-Beau Chene game will be played at the Beau Chene field near Arnaudville in St. Landry Parish, about 2 1/2 hours west of Franklinton. Allow extra time due  to possible traffic slowdowns in Baton Rouge.

FHS players and coaches are hoping for a large turnout of Lady Demon fans to help push them to victory and on to the state Class 4A Softball Tournament at Sulphur!
