Local high school baseball teams had a busy spring.

Crestview High School’s performance couldn’t have been much better as the Bulldogs won the District 2-6A champion; Baker School improved throughout the season under first-year coach Scott Johnson; and Laurel Hill School faced a rebuilding year.


For the second time in three years, the Bulldogs lifted a district championship trophy.

At times, Crestview was inconsistent during the District 2-6A regular season. The Bulldogs swept rival Niceville, but were swept by Mosley. Crestview split the regular season series with Choctawhatchee and Fort Walton Beach winning at home and losing on the road.

Crestview finished the district play’s regular season portion 4-4 with a loss to Fort Walton Beach on March 15. The Bulldogs were 8-4 overall at the time and wouldn't lose again for another month when they fell to Navarre.

The 10-game winning streak was capped by a Roman Donofro no-hitter against Marianna as the Bulldog celebrated Senior Night on April 9.
