West Hernando's junior baseball team went 3-0 to claim the Section 7 crown last weekend. The 13- and 14-year-old squad, managed by Jim Wright, outscored opponents 27-10 in the four-team tournament and will advance to the state championship, which starts Friday in Port Saint Lucie.
Nature Coast lineman Tim LaRose received his first college offer last week from Bethune-Cookman University during the Sharks' camp attendance.
LaRose, an offensive lineman, won two awards at camp: best offensive lineman and best pass blocker. LaRose, at 6-3 and 306 pounds, anchored the line last year for the Sharks.
The awards were voted on and given out by the Bethune-Cookman coaches. LaRose's teammates also received awards. Mike Fields was named best wide receiver. Brandon Nuby received the "runt" offensive lineman award, which goes to the best, but smallest lineman. Gary Myrick won the freshman board drill competition, which tested his strength and balance against an opponent.
