CRESTVIEW — There is plenty of soul searching for the Crestview High School baseball team to do this week on spring break.

The Class 7A Bulldogs have lost three of their last four games. The last of those losses came Tuesday when Class 1A Paxton beat Crestview 4-0.

Bobcat starting pitcher Grant Stewart and reliever Andrew Howell teamed up to limited the Bulldogs (7-7) to three hits while striking out 11 Crestview batters.

Stewart worked the first five innings and struck out 10 and gave up two hits to pick up the win.

Bulldog Coach Tim Gillis didn’t pull any punches after the loss.

“It’s not real good,” he said. “I can tell you that.

“I thought their pitcher was as good as I’ve seen all year. They did everything they had to, to win and we didn’t. I tip my hat to them.”
