SARASOTA — After losing to Academy at the Lakes in the Class A region quarterfinals last season, Sarasota Christian was prepared for the Wildcats this time around.
The Blazers won 10-0 on Tuesday, holding Academy at the Lakes to only two hits.
Four consecutive trips to the state playoffs have made the program more visible.
Sarasota Christian’s 2-1 loss last season had the team plenty motivated to get to Academy at the Lakes starter Lauren Evans early and often. The Blazers (17-3) were aided by 11 errors from the Wildcats defense.
“We’re a very, very young team with only a few seniors,” AATL coach Jack Shirling said. “The future is bright, and I’m excited for the future.”
The two hits for the Wildcats (8-9) came from Kallie Shirling and Sydney Boynton.
