HS Baseball Playoffs Round 3

The Houston Academy baseball team is making the most of its return to the post-season.

The Raiders have missed out on the playoffs the last two seasons, but this year they've made a run all the way to the third round.

The Raiders will host Hale County in a best of three game series beginning Friday at four o'clock.

That's at Northcutt Field in Dothan.

Houston Academy advanced to the third round thanks to a two game sweep of Bayside Academy last week.

Second year Raiders Coach Mike Mordecai believes the program is heading in the right direction.

Four other area teams are still alive in the playoffs. G.W. Long hosts Leroy. Geneva hits the road to Clarke County in 3-A and in 1-A Providence Christian plays host to pleasant home.
