Right after his commencement exercises graduating from Natchitoches Central High School, Chiefs’ baseball star Alex Dupuy put an exclamation point on his high school career Saturday at the Louisiana High School Coaches’ Association All-Star Game in Pineville.
Dupuy was chosen the West Team Most Valuable Player after reaching base all three times he batted, cracking a double and a single, and playing good defense in right field, not his normal infield position.
Dupuy was a first-team All-District 1-5A shortstop for the Chiefs, who hosted a playoff series for the first time this century. He batted .445 with four home runs, 30 RBI and an on-base percentage of .630, while also shining as a pitcher. On the mound,. He was 3-2 with four saves, a 2.02 earned run average, and in 31.1 innings pitched, he struck out 44 and walked only 10.
