  • Baseball: East Lake 3, Jesuit 2

    EAST LAKE — He had two strikes against him, but if the first six innings had taught East Lake centerfielder Sawyer Wirth anything, it was that good things come to those who wait. So as he stood at the plate in a tie ballgame against Jesuit, he blocked everything else ...

  • Boys basketball: Jefferson out to make a little history

    Boys basketball: Jefferson out to make a little history It’s hard to blame teenagers, many of whom were born in the late 1990s, for not knowing much about 1974.

  • State girls basketball: Familiar foe takes out Seffner Christian

    State girls basketball: Familiar foe takes out Seffner Christian LAKELAND — With a bolstered roster, Seffner Christian looked a lot different, its road to Wednesday’s Class 3A state championship game against Miami Country Day even easier than the year before. But when the Crusaders’ season finally ended, the feeling was all too familiar.  For the second straight year, Seffner ...

  • Region boys basketball: Gibbs 49, Jesuit 48 (OT)

    ST. PETERSBURG — Gibbs’ Barry Brown ran a 90-foot dash in roughly four seconds Tuesday. That the Kansas State signee also managed to toss in a swooping layup left Jesuit in disbelief. The Gladiators trailed 48-47 in the final 17 seconds of overtime when Brown, a turbo guard, started his ...

  • Region boys basketball: Jefferson 79, Mitchell 65

    TRINITY — There were a few snippets Tuesday where the pressure of a packed gym and playoff ball adversely affected Jefferson. It can happen to a team that, until a few days ago, hadn’t won a postseason game in nearly 40 years. But, hey, that’s what timeouts are for. Jefferson ...
