Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.
EAST LAKE - GiOnna DiSalvatore came as close as possible to collecting a natural cycle Wednesday night.
In a 7-0 Countryside win over East Lake, DiSalvatore singled and doubled to centerfield, followed by a triple to rightfield. In her fourth trip to the plate, the No. 3 hitter smacked a hard drive into left-centerfield that bounced off the top of the fence. The double drove in a Countryside (10-1) run, and DiSalvatore missed the cycle by inches.
After the game, the senior admitted she had no idea she was in a position to hit for the cycle and was disappointed because she does have three home runs this season.
Overall, four Countryside players combined for six extra-base hits, including Ali Lamb, who belted a home run over the centerfield fence in the fifth inning.
Ashlee Sismilich poked a triple, and Alyssa Allbritten poked had a double. On the mound, Desiree Baker tossed a five-hitter with nine strikeouts.
East Lake (9-5) was led by Courtney Dyer's two hits, including a double. She was also part of a great defensive play in the fifth inning when she caught a throw from centerfielder Carley Davis to tag out Sismilich, who was trying to score on a fly out. Sismilich ran into a hard tag and had to leave the game for medical attention.
