Maurepas' own leading LSU at the plate
MAUREPAS - The LSU Tigers are still finding their swing at the plate this season, but catcher Kade Scivicque is helping with that process - leading the team in batting average, hits, and home runs.
What is so special about the junior college transfer?
He's the first man from Maurepas to letter in an LSU varisty sport.
His road wasn't ever easy, though.
"I was told no one would take a look at me because I came from such a small school," said the junior. "It was just motivation for me...If you want to be successful you have to work for it."
Scivicque, no doubt is the talk of Maurepas and surrounding communities on LSU game days, but LSU head coach Paul Mainieri says he's already been one of the biggest surprises this season in the Southeastern Conference.
"I think he's going to be one of the top players in our league before it's all said and done."
