The county had already con-
tracted with Tallahassee lob-
byist Chris Doolin to represent
its interests at the state level
through June for $15,000.
Then late last month county
officials, city representatives
and others from the school
board and the Town of Glen St.
Mary met with Mr. Doolin to
discuss establishing a coalition
to promote community-wide
concerns like not privatizing
Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital and protecting revenue
streams from the state.
During the January 27 gath-
ering, County Commissioner
Mike Griffis suggested that co-
alition partners could also help
fund Mr. Doolin's fee.

all wonders ... but we'll know

City Commissioner Phil
Rhoden, a NEFSH employee,
pointed out that while keeping
the hospital a public facility is
important, other issues could be
lobbied in the future, too.
"Anything that's good for the
community can be brought to
the coalition," he said.
Board member Vernon Ben-
nett said the $3000 was "pretty
cheap to get another set of eyes"
in Tallahassee. "Even if they
were just looking out for this
one thing, (the hospital), it'd be
worth it to me," he said.

signed off on the coalition's

With the private sector shed-

Danny Thomas, project manager
for the sheriff's new facility, said
even though the hiring process hasn't
officially begun, many applications

public sector jobs are basically the
only option right now, said Work-

figures released last month, Baker
County's jobless rate increased more
than three percent from December
2007 to December 2008.
"It's been that way everywhere,"
Ms. Moody said. "But Baker Coun-
ty is doing okay compared to other
areas in the region."
Baker County is tied with Nas-
sau County for the third highest
unemployment rate in the region at
7.3 percent. Putnam County leads
the way at 9.4 percent and St. Johns
County shows the least number of
unemployed at 6.6 percent as of De-
In turn, Worksource has seen a
comparable increase in applicant
registrations. There were 435 job

"That's about a 50 percent in-
crease," Ms. Moody said.

The structure owned by Stephen Bailey sustained severe heavy damage to the attic

According to state figures
from last month, the jobless rate
in Baker (and Nassau) counties
is 7.3 percent the third high-
est in the region. That translates
into about 730 people unem-

there's probably a lot more than
that if one includes employable
people who for one reason or an-
other are not in the job market.
They likely wouldn't be working
even in a roaring economy.
But for'those skilled and un-.

Likewise in the corrections
field (I despair using the word
"corrections" when referring to
prisons). There doesn't seem to
be any drop in the number of

serious doubts government can
solve our economic woes with
"band-aid" spending schemes
dreamed up by lawmakers
who've never spent a productive
day in private business, but I'll
save that for another column.
Much of economic prognos-
tication is, well, guesswork. So
here's my guess.
Baker County will be buffeted
from outside forces (like the fact
that half of us work outside the
county and most of those jobs
are in private sectors), but won't
be as hard-hit as other areas of
Florida and south Georgia.
We don't have a tourist-de-
pendent economy, and our em-
ployment eggs are in diversified
baskets, both private and public.
Our goal should be to continue
attracting private jobs, though
we've lost many of those tem-
porarily at locations like Han-
son Roof Tile, Sanderson Pipe
and Insteel. When the economy
comes back, we're still attrac-
tive to industrial prospects for a
number of reasons.
The fact that public jobs are
opening.up in the first quarter
of this year will soften the blow
somewhat as jobs continue to be
lost elsewhere. But, at least for

Names once common such as Blanche, Ethel,

they were my parents age. I haven't run across any-
one in the current generation who has bestowed
such titles on their children. I can't even remember
the last time I heard of anyone naming their daugh-
ter once-common names such as Janet or Susan.
I do like the old fashioned names of my grand-

Genevieve, Latishia and Amanda. One uncle went

Growing up, I was the only Kelley around and it
stayed that way until about twenty years ago. Now
it's pretty common and also spelled about a dozen

Popular names tend to be cyclical and influ-

Code board revises notification rules
The Baker County Code Enforcement
* Board took a half hour the evening of
February 9 to decide it had to postpone
hearing the only case on its agenda this
The code board, which had not met
since October due to the dearth of viola-
tion cases and the illness of its enforce-
ment officer Phil Thomas, decided on
advice from its attorney that Michael and
Amy Rayburn had not been properly noti-
fied of the meeting.
The Rayburns, whose property off CR
23B is across from Macclenny Elementa-
ry, were cited for a number of violations of
the county's property use code: junk and
refuse, a travel trailer, accessory structure
and a dilapidated fence.

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
An unarmed Jacksonville
burglary suspect shot by Mac-
clenny resident and Jacksonville
Sheriff's Office deputy Ryan
Fraser last year could be charged
following a fresh review of the
case by State Attorney Angela
The charges against Jerrick
Hall, 20, were dropped last
month after prosecutors learned
that the renter of the Owen Ave-
nue home on Jacksonville's west
side -- who was incarcerated
at the time of the burglary call
- said he knew the people in
the home and didn't mind them
The owner of the house lives
nearby and called police when
he noticed unknown people in-
side the residence.
On February 10, Ms. Co-
notice of the violations. However, the Ray-
burns were not notified via certified letter
that the case would be heard at the Febru-
ary regular meeting.
"In order for it to be considered an of-
ficial notice, it has to be certified even if it
is returned," said Mr. Broling.
The code board previously reduced the
number of written notices from three to
two to save the cost of postage, and hence-
forth will send a single certified letter to
defendants informing them of the viola-
tion, the amount of time (normally 30
days) they have to rectify it, and the date
of a hearing if they do not.
That condensed version, according to
Mr. Broling, satisfies the state's require-
ment of proper notice.
According to the county's building of-
ficial Robert Hathcox, filling in for Mr.
Thomas, the Rayburns may have moved
from the area. He indicated later there is
some urgency to clean up the property be-
cause it is an unsightly presence directly
in front of the school.
In other business, Mr. Hathcox report-
ed that a partially completed single family
home off Smooth Bore Dr. north of Glen
St. Mary was razed.
The home had been officially under
construction five years, with no substan-
tial progress in recent years. Neighbors
complained that it was both unsightly and
a hazard, and the CEB agreed. The owner
was ordered to remove deteriorating fram-
ing and roofing and essentially begin the
application and inspection process anew.
The owner failed to do that before a
deadline set by the building department,
and hence had no choice but to tear it
down or have the county do it and place a
lien on the property for its cost.

School board okays pact
for deaf student services
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
The Baker County school district approved at its February 2 meet-
ing a new contract with Clarke Jacksonville Auditory/Oral. Center
The contract is for educational services for deaf or hard of hearing
students. Clarke Jacksonville's focus is to mainstream deaf and hard
of hearing children back into public school before or by age seven.
The contract is effective until June 30, 2009. Under its terms, the
school board agreed to pay an annual fee in ten monthly installments
based on the number of students enrolled. The amounts range from
$10,513 to $19,331.
The contract covers initial diagnostic services by Clarke Jackson-
ville for hearing impaired children 36 months or older whose families
pursue an Individual Education Plan (IEP) to customize curriculum
from preschool through first grade.
The contract includes periodic progress reports, as well as family
education and involvement.
The board also voted to approve modifications to an existing con-
tract the district has with the Florida Division of Emergency Manage-
ment to obtain hurricane screens for Macclenny Elementary.
The contract modifications would allow the school to request an
$154,058 advance on the total $205,411 contract allocation. The dis-
trict requested the measure due to tightening funds.
Kane Screens is the contractor, and the installation will take ap-
proximately three months.

Boyfriends and husbands are
jailed on battery counts last week
Three area boyfriends and
two husbands went to jail this
week for allegedly battering
their wives and girlfriends in
five separate incidents begin-
ning February 2.
That day Brandi Estep, 29, of
Glen told police her estrangetl
husband, Reese Estep, 31, came
to her Pheasant Trail residence
about 5:00 pm and got angry
during a conversation about end-
ing the couple's separation.
The victim said Mr. Estep
struck her in the face, pushed her
to the ground, kicked her in the
ribs and threatened to kill her.
Deputy Michael Hauge noted
visible marks on her face that he
said were consistent with that
After the attack, both parties
left the house. Ms. Estep said
when she returned, beer bottles
had been broken inside and out-
side the residence and other ob-
jects thrown about.
The officer questioned the
husband at his Crews Rd. home
in Glen. Mr. Estep denied touch-
ing the victim, but said he turned
over the television and threw
several things around the resi-
Deputy Hauge also noted Mr.
Estep's intoxicated state and that
he changed his account of what
happened several times during
their conversation. He was ar-
rested for battery.
Roughly four hours later,
'the officer responded to a fight
between Eilene Lee, 29, and her
live-in boyfriend William Win-'
ston, 30, both of Richardson Rd.
near Sanderson. Each had two
children living with them at the
The suspect claimed Ms. Lee
started the altercation after he
returned home from having a
few beers with friends. He said
she was throwing things around
and banging her head against the
The victim told Deputy Hauge
her boyfriend called her 7-year-
8ld daughter a derogatory name
as he ordered her to her room.
Then Mr. Winston began hitting
and pushing her around the resi-
dence, she said.
The deputy noted a cut to her
nose, which was still bleeding,
and several abrasions on her
Ms. Lee also said the suspect
struck his 5-year-old son.
Statements from two of the
children confirmed the girl-
friend's version of events and
Mr. Winston was arrested on a
battery charge and obstruction
of justice for allegedly severing
the phone lines to the residence
and throwing Ms. Lee's cell
phone in a bathtub.
Melissa Kendrick, 42, of
W. North Blvd. in Macclenny
said her husband Joel, also 42,
pushed her down a neighbor's
stairs, kicked her multiple times
and struck her in the left hand
with a unknown object about
3:30 pm February 3.
Deputy Peter Quinley saw
blood on her hand while taking
The victim said the attack oc-
curred over an argument over
money and objects to trade for
drugs, and that the sheriff's
office has responded to their
home numerous times due to the
husband's violent behavior. Mr.
Kendrick, who the victim said
has mental problems, was ar-
rested for battery,
Earlier that day, Rushad Lee,
22, of Joan St. in Macclenny was
arrested after allegedly punched
his girlfriend in the face during
an argument at her Jimmy Lane
residence about 5:00 am.
According to Deputy Quin-
ley, victim Shameka George, 23,
would not sign a witness state-
ment, but did say Mr. Lee struck
her in the nose and upper lip
with a closed fist that morning.
The officer noted dried blood in
Steven Raulerson, 38, of
Pine Level Church Rd. in Sand-
erson was arrested after his
girlfriend said he threw a set of
truck keys and struck her in the
face February 6.
The girlfriend, Susan Johns,
44, said the suspect was outside,
drinking, left in her truck and
returned after he'd run it into a
Ms. Johns and fellow victim
Brenda Burnsed, who Mr. Raul-
erson allegedly slapped.in the
face when she attempted to in-
tervene in the argument, said the
boyfriend became upset when
they refused to help retrieve the
truck about 1:00 am.
The couple was staying at Ms.
Burnsed's house because their
residence lacked heat and they
share a 9-month-old daughter.
Mr. Raulerson faces twin bat-
tery charges as well as a disor-
derly intoxication charge.
In other cases of battery re-
ported this past week:
Ezekial Register, 44, of S.
Thompson Rd. in Glen reported
that his neighbor, J.R. Powell,
and another male, Jeremiah Co-
peland, attacked him after a par-
ty the evening of February 3.
The victim said in the middle
of an argument with Mr. Pow-
ell, the neighbor punched him
in the face. While dazed on the
ground, Mr. Register said both
men punched and kicked him.
He was driven to Fraser Hos-
pital by a family member and
later taken to Shands Jackson-
ville for further treatment. Mr.
Register didn't report the in-
cident until two days later and
couldn't provide any informa-
tion on his attackers other than
Deputy Tony Norman said
Mr. Powell was not at his resi-
dence and his girlfriend refused
to give any personal information
about Mr. Powell. Nobody at
the scene knew anything about
Mr. Copeland or where he could
be contacted either, the officer
A battery charge was filed
against a 23-year-old female pa-
tient at Northeast Florida State
Hospital for allegedly slapping
another patient, 54,, also a fe-
male, because the latter woman
wouldn't give up a coat she was
holding for a third patient in the
bathroom. The incident occurred
just after noon February 6.

Murder at Olustee...
(from page 1)
Dupoy and Rowley both were
of the 112 substitutes drafted
into the 7th Conn. in September
of 1863. During the Civil War a
person could hire a substitute,
such as Dupoy and Rowley, to
serve in his place. Most of the
time substitutes were considered
poor soldiers and many would
desert and re-enlist as a substi-
tute under another name, thus
getting paid several times over.
The morning of February 20,
1864 would dawn cold and clear.
Union ships in the St. John's
River reported the temperature
at 27 degrees. The Union troops
under General Truman Seymour
were up early and quickly moved
out, crossing the South Prong of
the St. Mary's heading west to-
wards Lake City.
Twenty miles to the west at
Olustee Station, the Confederate
forces under Confederate Gen-
eral Joseph Finnegan were pre-
paring to meet them.
The 7th Connecticut under
Col. Joseph Hawley was soon on
its way toward Olustee. Joseph
Hawley described the North
Florida residents as follows:
"Most of the people we find were
truly in a miserable condition. I
don't think they have suffered yet
for food, but they are a scrawny,
lackluster, dead looking people
with little intelligence. They are
very poorly clothed. The coun-
try is quite thinly settled. I have
heard of but one church in going
Reaching Sanderson around
noon, the main body of troops
rested and had lunch while the
7th Connecticut pushed forward
to support the cavalry which
had already passed Sanderson.
Around 2:00 pm, the advanced
troops encountered Confeder-
ate cavalry west of Sanderson.
Here Milton Wood Ford of the
7th Connecticut describes the
"Soon as we were deployed
we were ordered to advance and
keep cool, take good aim and
not waste our ammunition ... as
we advanced the enemy retired,
keeping just in sight. Whenever
we could get near enough .to
stand any chance-of execution,
we would blow away at them,
and they returned the fire in a
way that showed they were good
marksmen. For their shots came
plenty near enough, although
none of us were hit..This kind
of running fight was kept up for
about three miles."
It was sometime shortly after
* this that the murder happened.
Private Jerome Dupoy fell dead
from a gunshot wound to the
back of the head. Several. fellow
soldiers were near and recalled
seeing Private Dupoy lunge for-
ward from a kneeling position
and fall dead face down. Several
days later after the Union defeat
at Olustee, the rumor circulated
around camp in Jacksonville
that John Rowley had murdered
Jerome Dupoy during the battle.
Captain Benjamin Skinner of
Co. D investigated the rumor,
but could not find any evidence
to substantiate it.
It was soon dropped.
Things were quiet until
around the 1st of April, 1864.
It was at this time John Rowley
was disciplined for missing a
drill. 1st Lt. Theodore Wildmari
ordered him to be punished by
standing with all his equipment
on top of a barrel for two hours.
After about an hour and a half,
Pvt. Rowley told the orderly he
wished to talk to Lt. Wildman.
When he was led into Lt. Wild-
man's tent, he confessed that he
had killed Jerome Dupoy during
the Battle of Olustee. When he
was asked why, he said that Du-
poy had tried to take his life at
St. Helena so he took Dupoy's at
SPrivate Rowley then stated
the ghost of Private Dupoy ap-
peared before him in the night
time and hollered at him and he
could not sleep.
Following his confession,
Rowley's statement about the
crime was published in the
Danbury, Connecticut Jefferso-
nian newspaper in May, 1864. It
"Since the battle, I have dread-
ed nights, for they are horrible
nights. When on picket duty, I
always see Dupoy stand a little
ways in front, his face full of
blood and the bullet hole in his
head. At night in my dreams, he
stands at the entrance, I awake.
He is there pale and bloody, but
vanished as soon as I see him.
I could not keep the horrible
crime a secret any longer."
The war soon shifted farther
north and the 7th Connecticut
was sent to Virginia. At Army'
headquarters at Glouster Point,
Virginia on April 26, 1864, a
court martial was. convened. Pri-
vate Rowley was arraigned on
the following charges which his
plea was not guilty.
Charge One Murder
Specifications: It is said that
Private John Rowley, Company
D 7th Regiment 'Connecticut
Volunteers, did intentionally and
with malice and fore thought kill
Jerome Dupoy, a private in Co.
D 7th Regiment, by shooting
him, while both were engaged
in battle with the enemy this onl
the battleground near Olustee,
Florida on the 20th Day of Feb-
Charge Two Treason
Specifications: In this that
the said Private John Rowley,
while the forces of the United
States were actively engaged in
the battle against the enemies of
the United States, did give aid
to and comfort to the enemies
at war with the United States by
shooting one Jerome Dupoy be-
ing engaged on the battleground
near Olustee, Florida, February
During a two day trial John
Rowley was found guilty of both
counts and was sentenced to be
hung by the neck until dead at
such time and place as the com-
manding general may direct.
On September 2, 1864 Joseph
Hawley Col. of the 7th Connect-
icut Regiment wrote his wife
about the execution:
"Tomorrow at 2:30 pni in pres-
ence of the brigade, Private John
Rowley of Co. D 7th Connecti-
cut will be hung for the murder
of his comrade, Private Jerome
Dupoy, of the same whom he de-
liberately, shot through the head
while the regiment was in the
midst of battle. His grudge arose
from a little quarrel and fight
they had a few weeks before."
Pvt. Rowley was hanged for
his crime on September 3rd,
1864 at Petersburg, Virginia.

troubles and pain, Mama left
peacefully for eternal life. She
can't come back, but we can go

This is a time we hate to face;
our loved one is gone, but not
erased. Our heart is heavy for
ones so dear, not just ones who
passed, but ones left here. We
want to help the ones in pain,
but how to do that we can not
explain. For in each of us there's
a helping hand, and with her
love we are able to understand.
Our memories of her keep her

On behalf of my family, I
wish to thank our many friends
and relatives for the prayers,
visits and kind sentiments ex-
pressed during the illness and
death of my husband, Berry F.
Rhoden Sr. Your steadfast sup-
port is a constant reminder that
we never face pain and sorrow
alone. There are many individu-
als deserving of our gratitude,
but I would like to single out two
First, I want to thank- our
brothers and sisters at the First
Baptist Church of Macclenny for
the outpouring of love and con-
cern, and for the wonderful meal
served after the funeral service.
The delicious feast was exceed-
ed only by the comfort and gen-
tle kindness displayed by those
serving our family and friends.
Second, I want to thank the
United States Army for sending
the honor guard unit to present
full military honors at the burial
service. It's reassuring to know
that even while our men and
women are serving in war-torn
regions around the world, our
military still takes the time to
honor the contributions, service
and sacrifice of its veterans.

Library doubles as book retailer
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
The Emily Taber Library is not just a pla
where you can check out books. It's also a gre
place to buy books. Both levels of the library cc

well as magazines. There are hard and soft ba
books available, fiction and non-

"This is just another service to '
our patrons," said library director
The sale books come from sev-

from regular holdings when new-

"My children love to read. They

"We've been observing 100
Day for years," said Principal
Teachers use the milestone in
the school year to help give in-
struction about the number 100
and make it the focus of lessons
and classroom activities.
"It's hard for very young chil-
dren to grasp that number some-
times," said Assistant Principal
Bonnie Jones. "Teachers come
up with creative ways to teach
Students in one class were
given a paper with a chat that
contained squares numbered
1-100. They then counted out
100 pieces of Fruit Loop cereal,
placing one on each square un-
til the sheet was full. This gave
them a visual reference for what
100 objects looks like.
They counted out the Fruit
Loops one more time as they re-
moved them to string on a piece
of yarn. The result? An edible
treat they could wear around
their necks the rest of the day,
then eat on the way home after
Ms. Bertha and Ms. Agnes
(actually Ms. Sinclair and Ms.
Jones in disguise) gave them-
selves over completely to the
make-believe senior characters
they were portraying and were a
big hit at the school.
"Some of the children were
actually scared of us because
they literally didn't recognize
who we were," said Ms. Jones.
"Others got a big kick out of it
and laughed themselves silly."
Ms. Bertha and Ms. Agnes
had fun with the students, ask-
ing them where the record player
or the typewriter was.
"We got blank expressions
because they didn't know what
those things were," said Ms.
Ms. Bertha further egged
students on by asking what the
fancy box on the wall was.
"It's a TV," said one. "Haven't
you ever seen a TV?"
"Well, now. What do you do
with a TV?" Ms. Bertha asked.

she was supposed to watch it,

"How old do you think I am?"

Wrestler overcomes defects at
birth to reign as district champ
When senior wrestler Tucker
McCullough of Macclenny
won the district championship
last week in the 112-pound
weight class, he won a ticket to
the regionals this weekend in
But for McCullough, the
challenge of a regional win and
a trip to the state championship
in Lakeland is nothing compared
to the challenges he faced early
in his life.
Even prior to his birth, the
grappler had to struggle. Doctors
discovered that McCullough
had Gastrochisis, an abnormal-
ity of the abdominal wall where
internal organs push outside the
body. His intestines were formed
on the outside of his body and
without radical surgery he might
not survive. Doctors couldn't
wait until birth to try1and repair
what nature had left broken, so
instead they did surgery on him
while he was still in the womb.
Mother Kim had a C-section
and the doctor performed surgery
on young Tucker in an attempt
to' repair, the Gastrochisis. It
wasn't successful and gangrene
set in. Everyone thought that he
wouldn't make it.
"The doctor made a mistake
and two-thirds of my intestines
were gone. I wasn't supposed to
live," said Tucker. "They gave
my Mom and Dad the choice to
put me on the respirator or leave
me off it and they put me, on it.
Pretty soon I started breathing
on my own."
More surgeries followed, and
for two years he was strapped to
machines. When he finally came
off them, he didn't let his health
problems hold him back. Tucker
McCullough was determined
to lead a normal life. And for
him, that meant sports every
With what he had gone
through, one would think
Tucker and his parents would
hesitate playing contact sports,
and that was only partially true.
He played baseball, basketball,
football, soccer, golf and wres-
His parents held him back a
little from football because he
was much smaller than anyone
he played against.
"But I begged them and they
gave in," recalls Tucker with a
smile. "They were always super
supportive no matter what I did.
Even now, Dad will get off work
early to see me play."
Oddly enough the position
he played in Youth League was
defensive lineman. The offen-
sive linemen outweighed him by
as much as 40 or 50 pounds.
"It was funny," said Tucker.
"My dad was a really good
coach and he knew it was about
body control. By the time those
big linemen got up out of their
stance I was by them."
He also played quarterback
in Youth League and won the
championship. No matter what
he plays, Tucker McCullough
plays it all out.
He didn't encounter wrestling
until middle school, and from
the start he knew it was a perfect
fit. Wrestling uses weight clas-
sifications, and he was always
in the lowest weight class. Even
so, it wasn't easy.
"It was actually harder early
on. The lowest weight class was
84 pounds and I weighed 55
pounds in the 8th grade."
That meant he had to work all
that much harder to excel. His
dad Troy worked with him after
practice and pretty soon he was
defeating kids 30 pounds heavi-
er. He made it to the nationals in
his age group and represented
Team Florida and was an All-
He has wrestled for BCHS
since his freshman year. Now
that he is actually weighing in
at the proper weight class it is
much easier than it was in the
"Now, it's a breeze. That huge
.deficit isn't there," lie said.
McCullough enters the
Regionals as the top seed in the
112 class so he is anxious to do
his best and move on to the state
But all through his life, Tucker
McCullough has shown people
that he is more than capable of
doing things that nobody ever
thought he could.
Wrestling is no exception.

The Lady Wildcat softball
team notched its first two victo-
ries of the young season in a pair
of pre-season wins over Yulee
and West Nassau. The Cats de-
feated the Lady Warriors in their
own tournament over the week-
end in Callahan.
The girls are oh the road this
week to start the regular season
with a Tuesday game at First
Coast and a Thursday matchup
Raiders bounce Cats
The Santa Fe Red Raiders
broke open a close game with a
20-9 run in the fourth quarter to
end the Lady Wildcats' hopes of
a district crown on February 6
in the semi-finals of the district
tournament at BCHS. Santa Fe
went on to defeat Ridgeview in
the finals on Saturday.
The Lady Cats took a slim
two-point lead' near the end of
the first period, but the Red Dev-
ils battled back to tie the game
at 22 going into halftime. Santa
Fe pulled ahead at the start of the
second half .but the Cats kept it
Destiny de la Pena played
well for the Cats and Brittany
Ruise was back on the court af-
ter an ankle injury, though not at
"Our game plan was to try pnd
slow them down, which we did
for three periods," said Coach
Franklin Griffis. "We started
running: out of gas. during the
fourth period and found our-'
selves behind, then had to switch
our defensive strategy. We just
couldn't keep up with them as
they'pulled away. I thought we
played extremely well, though.
This has been the best win/loss
record (18-9) in the five years
that I have been coaching the

the furious pace Santa Fe shifted
into in the last few minutes and
the Raiders captured the game.
De la Pena led BCHS with 19
points and 5 rebounds. Ruise had
11 points and 7 rebounds. Kiana
Parker led the way defensively
with 11 rebounds.
The Wildcats easily won their
way into the semi-final with a 43-
22 pasting of Middleburg. The
Broncos couldn't manage to get
into double figures in any quarter
as the Wildcat defense shut down
with Eagle's View.
The girls pounded Yulee 10-3
in the opener, scattering 13 hits to
just three for Yulee, which didn't
help its cause with five errors in
Wildcat Ashley Holton went
three for four and scored four
runs. Bridget Williams went two
for four with a pair of runs and
Ashley Curry also scored two
runs. Cami Craig struck out 11
batters as she went the distance
on the mound.
It was a much closer game
when the Cats faced off against
West Nassau. The Cats erased a
two-run Warrior lead in the third
inning scoring three of their own.
With two outs in the inning,
Ashley Curry cracked a double.
Krista Smith singled to put run-
ners on first and third.

bring home Curry and pitcher
Tiffany Smith helped her cause
