LAFAYETTE — Time expired on Ruston High School’s Cinderella season as the clock struck midnight Saturday afternoon.
The red-hot Bearcats ran into an even hotter team as Acadiana completed a two-game series sweep over RHS with an 11-1 win in quarterfinal play of the Class 5A baseball playoffs.

SHREVEPORT — Junior Jake Kyte’s first-place finish in the 200-meter freestyle and several other Top Five finishes by Bearcat swimmers helped propel Ruston to a second-place finish in the recent 12-team Shreveport meet held at Centenary College.
“We performed well at this point in the season and the results were a second-place finish for Ruston, said head swim coach Paulette Crawford. “Not only did we post our best finish this season as a team, but several swimmers improved on their qualifying times for the upcoming Louisiana State Swimming Championships.”
