Gators win Justin Richards tournament

"The pitchers threw strikes and we played good defense. The older guys – the seniors now – did a great job. It was a great experience."

Weidenhammer and Davis provided the Gators leadership at the plate and on the mound.

Weidenhammer walked in the first inning and later scored on a Davis hit, giving the Gators an early 1-0 lead.

Hunter Willis scored for Crestview in the bottom of the first inning, tieing the game at 1-1.

Weidenhammer turned in the tournament’s defensive play in the second inning to shut down a potential Bulldog rally.

Devin Wimmer led off the Bulldog second with a base hit. Pierce Cadenhead tried to bunt, but popped the ball up between home plate and the pitcher's mound.

Weidenhammer made a diving catch to retire Cadenhead and, while still sitting on the ground, threw to first base to double up Wimmer.
