Scott took first place in the 1,600-meter run and the 3,200 as the Baker boys finished in third place with 105.5 behind Pensacola Christian, with 161.5 points, and Jay, with 136.5 points.

Baker also had first-place finishes from Eileen Brown in the girls shot put, Stephen Shaw in the boys triple jump and Dylan Wadsworth in the boys 300-meter hurdles.

The Gators received a big blow when sprinter Izayaih Thomas, undefeated in the boys 100- and 200-meter dashes, pulled a hamstring in the 100-meter dash.

Gator coach David Oglesby praised his athletes’ efforts.
