BAKER — Tommiko Parks couldn't find much to complain about Tuesday night after her Baker School volleyball team made short work of District 3-1A rival Chipley.

"Overall, I'm satisfied all the way around," she said. "We played smart at the net. We played hard in the back row.

"We played smart and we played within ourselves and we did every thing we needed to do to win the game. You try to teach all out all game, and whenever it translates over into your games that's a good thing because that means they are in tune to what's going on and they are into the game."

The Gators took control of the match early and were never threatened in taking the 3-0 win by scores of 25-15, 25-17, 25-11.

Lena Daoud was in serve in the first set as Baker opened a quick 3-0 lead. The Tigers did manage to pull even at 5-5.

Brittany Brunson's kill put Baker in front 6-5 and the Gators steadily built the lead the rest of the way in the set.

Early on the Gators showed they were ready to play as they hustled after every ball and played ricochets off the ceiling as if they were just another pass from a teammate.
