Charting a new course
The Warriors hope their season of firsts continues next week.

It has been a season of firsts for Calvary Christian. The Warriors won the Bay Conference Championship for the first time in their seven-year history this season and will look to complete another, more important first next week - winning a district title.
"We have a nice mix of seniors and younger players," Calvary Christian coach Josh Gilmore said. "They have a lot of fun. We take the matches seriously, but when we go out to practice it's about having fun and getting better."
The Warriors will also enjoy a home-course advantage when they host next week's tournament at Tarpon Woods.
"It's a tight course and these guys know it like the back of their hand," Gilmore said. "It should help our guys out."
The Warriors are stacked up top, with No. 1 Mike Baskovich and Green Devil Invitational low-medalist Aaron Watson, No. 2, leading the way. Combine that with Tyler Hancock, Greg McClimans and No. 5 Trey Howard, and the Warriors are formidable from top to bottom.
"(Howard's) our No. 5, but he's legit," Gilmore said. "He really came through for us at the Green Devil (Invitational)."
The Warriors wrapped up that Green Devil Invitational two weeks ago, leading Gilmore to believe this season might provide another first - a state title.
"This is the first step," he said, referring to the districts. "We've had a solid group of seniors for a few years and this tournament is for them."
