The News Herald

The Gulf Coast baseball and softball teams will be back in action Saturday, with the GC baseball team heading to Niceville and the Lady Commodores to Marianna for Panhandle Conference competition.

Gulf Coast’s baseball team (18-7 overall, 0-1 in conference) will play a doubleheader against No. 11 Northwest Florida State (23-6, 4-1) with the first game starting at 1 p.m.

The Raiders took the first game of the series 5-2 on Thursday at Frazier Field, with Matt Boswell pitching seven strong innings to get the decision for Northwest. Gulf Coast ace Brett Wisely took the loss, just his second of the season.

The No. 15 Lady Commodores (26-8, 3-1) will take on No. 2 Chipola (27-3, 2-0) in a doubleheader starting at 1 p.m. with a chance to take over first place in the Panhandle Conference standings.

After dropping its league opener to Tallahassee, Gulf Coast has won three straight league games. The Lady Commodores took the second of two against TCC 10-3 and swept Northwest Florida State at Joe Tom King Field on Thursday.

Gulf Coast won the first of two over Northwest 3-1 thanks to a two-run walk-off home run by Kristina Warford in the bottom of the eighth inning. Hannah Poole tossed a complete game shutout with 15 strikeouts in the second game, a 3-0 Lady Commodores victory.
