This is the fourth year in a row that three teams from district 3-5A have made the state tournament.
But it is the first time that all three of those teams have come from the Lake Area.
Barbe is back again as the district winner and the defending class 5A state champion.
But this year, the Buccaneers will be joined in New Orleans by the Sulphur Golden Tors, who managed to beat the Bucs in an extra-inning game a few weeks ago...
And the Sam Houston Broncos, which earned a #6 seed in the tournament despite having to play through the toughest district in the state.
And even though these three teams might have to face each other again on the way to a state title,
They all say they are rooting for their district rivals to have success at Tulane this weekend.
And they even manage to sound sincere.
