Baseball & Track Move On To Regional Play

BASEBALL: Our baseball team under the leadership of head coach Ty Griffin played in the regional semifinal last night against First Academy out of Orlando.  The team advanced to the regional by virtue of their 7-4 district championship win over Berkeley Prep last Friday.  The team won 3 games in the district to capture the crown and now is only 2 games away from making it to the Final Four. If we won last night’s game we will play again next Tuesday.  The other regional semifinal has Berkeley Prep playing Ocala Trinity Catholic.  If we win and Berkeley wins the regional final will be here at TC.  If we win and Trinity Catholic wins we will travel to Ocala for the final.

TRACK: Several of our track athletes led by head coach Theresa Hawkins are participating in the regional track meet today at Berkeley Prep by virtue of their performance in the district meet last week.
