Baylie also rang up six strikeouts and combined with Haiden Simpson and Allie Collins on a double play.

  • On the cusp

    There was a palpable feeling in the Dixie County High School gym that Cedar Key might pull off the improbable.

    The Shark boys, looking for their first tournament win in more than two decades, had fallen behind 13-3 in the first quarter, but came storming back to take leads in the second and third quarters of the District 1A-7 quarterfinal Feb. 13 in Cross City. With four minutes remaining, on the heels of a Kris Burns layup, CKS was knotted with the Tigers at 45-45.
