In a self-evaluation of the Apalchee High School baseball program, coach Mike Cavey decided it was best for a change in leadership.
Cavey resigned his position as leader of the Diamond Cats last week and will begin a new chapter in his coaching career at Archer High School for the 2014-2015 season. Many factors played into Cavey’s decision, but an inability to get the team into the state playoffs was part of it.
“It just felt like it was time,” Cavey said Sunday evening. “We had gotten the program and the facilities to a certain point, but didn’t seem like we could take that next step. We won a program best 13 games two years ago. We had always improved on the win total, but then we won 12 games and 10.”
