Things have been hectic as of late with the staff at “The Advance” putting together our Progress 2010 section, which will be included with Saturday’s edition.
Along with the work on Progress, baseball season has started with a bang as the baseball and softball teams for Escambia County High School and Northview High School have taken the field in their quest for championships this spring.
The Chiefs and Lady Chiefs have both begun the season extremely strong as the Chiefs with a three-game win streak and a championship at the W.S. Neal Eagle Classic under their belt.
The Lady Chiefs have also found success opening the season 3-0 under head coach Sammy Day. The Lady Chiefs have beaten Atmore, Jay and Central to open the season. Their toughest game has been against Jay, but they managed to beat their district rivals 12-8.
The Blue Devils have opened the season on some good notes as they sit at 2-2 with both their victories coming against Flomaton.
They look to be strong as they begin a tough stretch of games, which includes the county tournament that begins Thursday at 4 p.m. at T.R. Miller High School.
The Lady Blue Devils have only played one game as of yet, which was a loss to the Northview Lady Chiefs, but head coach William Casaday prides himself on how well his softball team plays, so they are sure to bounce back from 0-1 to get some big wins this season.
The Escambia Academy Cougars and Lady Cougars opened their seasons yesterday against the Southern Academy Cougars and Lady Cougars, so see Saturday’s edition to see how they performed.
