High school baseball: Lakeview Academy fends off West Hall, 7-6, for confidence-boosting win
Lakeview Academy pitcher Rob Hamby delivers a pitch for the Lions Monday afternoon during the first inning of their game with West Hall at Lakeview Academy.
When it comes to building a resume, Lakeview Academy baseball coach Deuce Roark prefers to use the old expression “iron sharpening iron” as his approach to scheduling the right competition for the young season. Roark’s “scrappy” Lions added its first big bullet point to that sheet on Monday in Lakeview. Lakeview Academy had a six-run surge in the bottom of the second inning on top of strong outings by senior starting pitcher Rob Hamby and Evan Gravitt in relief to hold off Class AAAA West Hall 7-6 Monday in Gainesville.
