The Apalachee High School baseball team experienced some ups and some downs during the first year of the Clint Harrison era this spring.
The Diamond Cats finished the season 6-19 overall and 5-13 in 8-AAAAA. As is usually the case, there was an adjustment period with a new coach, the first for the program in several seasons. Region wins included victories against Clarke Central, Salem, Flowery Branch and Cedar Shoals (twice). Salem was the No. 4 seed from the region and advanced to the state playoffs.
The Wildcats graduated five seniors and returning players will begin summer play next month.
