The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School baseball team split a doubleheader against visiting out-of-state teams last week.

The Tiger Sharks followed that up with a pair of district wins to begin the week with a visit to South Walton – listed as a home game on the schedule – on Friday night.

The Tiger Sharks beat East Memorial Christian Academy (AL) 13-8 but lost a tough 3-1 decision to Covington (TN) High School.

Bryce Register, Cole Cryderman and Hunter Baumgardner paced the win over EMAC.

Ethan Sander started on the mound and earned the win after Cryderman came on to snuff out a EMAC rally in the top of the seventh inning.

Bryce Godwin, who Coach Chuck Gannon said provided a “gritty effort”, took the loss against Covington.

“We just left too many runners on base and could not come up with the big hit,” Gannon said, adding that Register again “had a good effort at the plate.”
