The Bossier All-Stars wrapped up the Little League 7-8-year-olds Machine Pitch District 4 title with a victory over Blanchard Friday evening at Clifford Almond Park.

Members of the Bossier team are Courtney Fisher, Tonya Henderson, Ali Morris, Kaleigh Barnstable, Aubrey Hollis, Catherine Kyle, Blanton Sawyer, Marissa Schoth, Trinitee Bruno, Laura Lee Mayfield, Kate Boltinghouse and Morgan Carroll.

In the 9-10 District 4 baseball tournament at Clifford Almond, the Bossier American All-Stars advanced to the winners’ bracket final with a victory over the Shreveport Americans.

The Bossier Nationals defeated the Shreveport Nationals to reach the semifinals where they lost to Blanchard.

The Americans faced Blanchard Sunday with a spot in the overall championship round on the line.

In the 9-10 softball tournament, the Bossier All-Stars defeated Blanchard in the first round before falling to Shreveport in the winners’ bracket final.
