Seahawks post three blowout wins

It was a chance to get their juju back, delight the home crowd and give the younger players some much-needed varsity experience as the Seahawks boys basketball team rattled off their straight lopsided wins last week.

“We tried to get a lot done, they used it as a practice, to get better,” said coach Ray Bailey following the Wakulla win. “In a game like this you want to stay healthy, don’t get no injuries., playing defense without reaching. We want to play solid defense and make them earn everything they get

“We need to use these wins to get better for tougher competition we got coming up, against North Bay Haven, and Mosley,” he said. “The games like this are good for them (younger players), giving them valuable minutes. We;re going to need them down the stretch.”

Against Wakulla senior Owen Poloronis led the team with 21 points, followed by 16 points from senior Ta-Shawn Jones, junior Ethan Kembro with 12, and 11 from eighth grader Jeremiah Allen, including three three-pointers.
