The relatively new Bulldogs program has rocketed to a speedy start as district champions. But they open against the 2021 state runners-up, a team powered by multi-sport star Ameari Logan.
A rematch of the 2021 Gateway Conference final, a Commanders victory, although the teams haven’t met in 2022. The game matches up two of Duval County’s best in White’s Tremesha Harris and Stanton’s Courtney Brown. Choctawhatchee or Tallahassee Godby awaits the winner.
