BAKER— The Baker volleyball team’s path back to the state final four has familiar foes.

The Gators host South Walton in the region semifinals at 7 p.m. Tuesday. If Baker gets past the Seahawks, the winner of the Chipley-Jay semifinal would be next for the Gators.

Baker (22-2) played, and beat, all three teams during the regular season. If the Gators make it to the state tournament semifinals in Kissimmee, they likely will face the Lafayette team that beat them for the state championship last year.

If Baker makes it to the championship match, a Sneads team the Gators beat in last year’s state semifinals may seek revenge.

First, the Gators must get past the Seahawks before thinking about packing their bags for a Nov. 11 date in Kissimmee.

Baker coaches Tomikko Parks and James Kerrell aren’t overlooking anything as their team tries for a second straight trip to the state tournament.
