Big spring for area teams

Johnson found himself in a different environment after winning Big School Coach of the Year honors at Choctaw. Class 1A baseball is often as different from 6A ball as night is to day.

Johnson started late last summer in teaching the Gators his way of playing the game.

Baker struggled at times, but at other times things seemed to be come together nicely. The Gators picked up their biggest win of the season on March 21 when they upset Fort Walton Beach 4-3.

Baker's final win of the season came in the District 2-1A tournament opener as the Gators beat Chipley 7-3.

The Gators lost to Holmes County in the tournament’s second round and finished the year with a 10-17 record.

Garrett Sanders, Adam Crowson, Logan Nixon and Taylor Carlisle provided the team’s senior leadership.
