FORT WALTON BEACH – Class 1A volleyball power Baker continued its warm up for another run deep into the state tournament later this month with an impressive 3-1 win over Class 6A Choctawhatchee on Monday.

The Gators won by scores of 25-21, 25-20, 22-25, 25-20 and avenged a loss earlier in the season to the Indians.

Baker coach Tomikko Parks said winning the match wasn’t as much about getting even with Choctaw as it was for her team to play well down the home stretch of the season.

“It wasn’t about avenging anything,” she said. “We just wanted to play well. We are coming down to the end of the season and it’s important that we are playing well at this time of the year.

“We don’t want to take any backwards steps and we want to make sure we are playing well going into the playoffs.”

In a match that was as close throughout the night as the set scores indicate neither team could pull away and dominate the other.

The Indians (4-9) had an early advantage in the first set jumping to an early 4-1 lead before the Gators (17-2) pulled even at 5-5.
