Gators primed for district playoffs

Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School baseball coach Tony Muina knew his sophomore-laden team would develop into a good team.

Just not quite this soon.

The Gators are 14-4 after last week’s victories over Sneads, Vernon and Franklin County and are pursuing an undefeated district record with just two district games remaining.

The Gators are 10-0 in District 2-1A with contests against Cottondale and Blountstown on tap this week.

Wewahitchka has already clinched the top seed in the district tournament which begins April 25 in Blountstown.

Not bad for a team that has five sophomores in the starting lineup, 11 sophomores total on the roster and just one senior.

“I knew that we had a chance to be good, but I didn’t think we’d in a position to be where we so quick,” said Muina. “We are a young team and the sophomores really had to step in and play.
