((While students were forced to pack their books and leave school it seems nothing can remove the baseball team from the Seminole district top spot. The spreading mold only makes the team more like the trains that buzz their yard, a machine tightly linked together. ((:)) Winning helps, the Cavs are 13 and 2 with a four man pitching rotation that yields an ERA of 1.95. ((:))
The team is batting .317 with excellent clutch hitting. Those nerves of steal come from the team's seven seniors.

((:)) ((:)) ((:))
Despite the problems, the boys and girls teams are first in the district. Coach Butler has made use of the time off from school with tough workouts and more video sessions breaking down technique. ((:)) ((:))
Wednesday night, the Baseball team battles Heritage while track hosts Brookville. In forest, Steve Mason, News 7 sports.))
