Anderton out at Z’hills
Rick Anderton won't be retained as head baseball coach, and the vacancy will be posted on the Pasco County School Board website this week, Zephyrhills principal Andy Frelick said.
Anderton led the Bulldogs to a 6-18 record this season, ending with a first-round loss to Ridgewood in the Class 5A-District 8 tournament last week. Zephyrhills was outscored 175-102.
The team was led by senior Blake Roberts, who batted .421, with 24 hits, 18 RBIs and two homers. Fellow senior Jordan Thomas also belted three homers.
