The boys won every other game, completing the first 1st place finish in the BDC since joining in the 2021-22 season. They played the Hamilton County Foxes in their final conference game of the season to clinch the first place spot. Flora won the game with dominance winning 13-2 at home along with a no-hitter from Rayce Giddens, ending the game in 5 innings. They look to continue to keep this run into regionals coming up.
