LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Louisiana State's athleticism was too much for St. Joseph's Thursday night in the nightcap of the Old Spice Classic at ESPN's Wide World of Sports. Add that to LSU's red-hot start, and it was all the Hawks could do to keep this one close, falling to the SEC Tigers, 82-65. St. Joe's itself has a reputation as an athletic team, but head coach Phil Martelli disputed that notion. "Because we have a guy that jumps really high, we have a lot of people that think we can match," Martelli said.

To stay in the hunt for a Ches-Mont League title, Avon Grove baseball coach Bob Powell said, his team had to win Wednesday afternoon's game. And who better to have on the mound than Red Devils ace Eric Ligda? The junior righthander struck out four, walked none, and scattered seven hits in a complete game as Avon Grove dropped National Division foe Downingtown East, 4-1. He also added a double. "He's a monster," Powell said. "He just really brings it. No doubt, he's our ace. " T.J. Kish, a senior third baseman, stroked a two-run, two-out double in the bottom of the sixth, and that, Powell said, allowed Ligda to cruise through the seventh.
