Red Devils: public school champs

-A A +A

Williston deserves the crown for advancing further than any other public school

By Ryan Butler

The Williston High School baseball team lost its regional championship game Friday night.  It was still the best public school in its classification. 

The Red Devils are de facto state champions. In a league full of private schools with greater talent and greater resources, the Red Devils were highly impressive in one of the best runs from one of the best teams in school history. They went further than any public school in the competitive 4A league. Without the benefits of urestricted recruitment, athlete selection and private-school resources, Williston was able to beat all the public schools it faced in the post season. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep up with Bishop Moore Catholic High School- and their annual $13,116 tuition for non-catholics. 

The six other schools in the 4A elite eight were: Pensacola Catholic, Episcopal School of Jacksonville, Bishop Verot Catholic, Berkley Preparatory, Monsignor Edward Pace and Gulliver Preparatory.  Have you noticed a theme?
