Hernando Softball Notched Best Season in School History

BROOKSVILLE- Reaching the state semifinals for any Hernando High School team is a mountain that many have tried, but failed in being able to climb.

This 2019 version of the Leopards were able to make that accomplishment turn into a reality, as Hernando reached the Class 5A state semifinals against Coral Springs Charter. The Leopards ended up losing 6-1 in the school’s first appearance in the final four.

Bears rally from early deficit to keep season alive

Baseball is a sport best defined by a quote from the legendary Yogi Berra: “90% of the game is mental, the other half is physical.” Essentially, players can be cream of the crop prospects, but one mistake here, their judgment gets clouded there, and a domino effect takes place with their teammates.

For Al Sorrentino and the Central Bears, while that did happen early against the visiting Port Orange-Atlantic Sharks (yes, there’s another one), it’s what happened afterwards that set the tone.
