Wakulla Baseball Battles Hard, Falls Shy of State Title Game

The Wakulla High school baseball team traveled to Port St. Lucie for their first State Semifinals appearance since 1968. The War Eagles battled Archbishop McCarthy High School for the rights to play in Tuesday's Class 4A State Championship Game against Jesuit High out of Tampa, FL.

The War Eagles trailed 1-0 until the 4th inning when the boys from Crawfordville, FL plated 2 runs and took the 2-1 lead. They kept that lead until the 6th inning when McCarthy used a 3-run home run to retake the lead and inevitably the game.

4-2 was your final score. Congrats to Wakulla High on an incredible season!
