What a turnaround season for the Killian baseball team.
The Cougars looked buried early on starting the year 2-9, but they have come on strong in their second wave of district games and won eight of their past 10 games.
It looks like the result is coach Angel Herrera's tough young squad is headed to the GMAC tournament.
That's right, wins against Palmetto and Southridge in recent weeks has propelled the Cougars into a Monday matchup with Goleman in the first round.
Killian beat Coral Reef 9-3 on Thursday, coupled with Southridge's 6-4 win against Palmetto did the trick.
Miami Springs also beat Miami High 12-2, which should put the Golden Hawks into a first-round game against Ferguson Monday.
Due to space restrictions, Thursday's baseball results won't appear in the paper until Saturday, but they will be posted online at www.miamiherald.com/hssports in the next couple of hours.
