By Cassandra Swartz: Santa Fe cruised to an easy victory over Gainesville on Friday night, ending the game via a 10-0 mercy rule in less than five innings.

The home team Hurricanes turned in a dominant performance, putting up 12 runs while allowing zero. After starting last season 7-0 just to have the year be cut off abruptly, the Canes were ready to pick up where they left off, which they did by beating the Tornadoes with a run rule finish. Bradford threatened early, with freshman Rylie Blankenship reaching base on a single before stealing second and then advancing to third where she was ultimately left stranded when Gainesville starting...

At one point in the first quarter, the Wolves and Lions were tied at 13 apiece, but the final score leaned heavily in the home team’s favor, ending 66-35 and awarding the district title to the Wolves for the first time since 2018.
