The Apalachee High School baseball team ventured a long way from home over the weekend and returned with a doubleheader split against Islands High School of Savannah.
AHS fell 3-2 in eight innings in the opener before cruising to a 16-1 victory in five inning in the nightcap. The Wildcats are set to return to Region 8-AAAAA battles Wednesday (today) and Friday against Salem.
In the first game Saturday, neither team managed to score through six innings when AHS pushed two runs across in the top of the seventh. Islands managed to tie the game in the bottom half of the inning before scoring the game-winning run in the eighth.
