Next game vs. Dr. Phillips
Thursday, April 5, 4 p.m.
In battles against teams from odd parts of the state, the Wildcats have had their troubles, but on the baseball diamond against district foes, they’ve dominated. After a tough week, Winter Park (10-6, 6-1) emerged with two losses but a largely untarnished district record.
They fell to Bartram Trail 6-4 on March 27 and Stanton from Jacksonville 3-2 on March 28.
But against local teams they’ve had little trouble, with three straight trouncings under their belt in the middle of March. They beat Colonial 11-0, then again 9-1, and then took down Freedom on their own field 11-2.
The Wildcats took on Bishop Moore at press time Wednesday night, and will hit the road for the next few games. That will start with a 4 p.m. Friday showdown at Cypress Creek against a Bears team that’s 11-2 overall and 3-1 in their district.
They’ll finally return home to play Freedom (3-14, 1-5) again at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 11.
Edgewater (4-8, 3-2) had a tough start to their season, but hit hard before spring break to bamboozle Freedom with a 7-1 win. The big victory was the second blowout of the season for the Eagles, who have struggled against tough pitching, while finding themselves shelled against strong hitting.
They took on district rival Mainland at press time Tuesday night, and will return to the diamond against Dr. Phillips at 4 p.m. Thursday. The Panthers are 7-11 overall and 1-4 in the district.
