BAKER — It’s a question that the Baker School volleyball team hears every year.

“Can you keep the streak alive?”

The Gators are actually riding three streaks as they head into Tuesday’s season opener at Laurel Hill.

Baker has been to the state final four three straight years. They have won 11 consecutive district championships and have made the playoffs for the last 21 years.
