Greg Seibert is pretty ingrained at Catholic High School, it's his alma mater.

He's been on the football staff since 2001 and head coach for the last 12 years, but one place has a stronger pull.

Seibert is leaving Catholic for his hometown of Elberta, Alabama.

They are opening a new high school and Seibert will be the head football coach and athletic director.

Seibert said it was a difficult decision, but ultimately the chance to build a program from scratch and return to his roots was too much to pass up.

He built a consistent winner at Catholic and made the playoffs in 11 of his 12 seasons as head coach.

Seibert reached the semifinals in 2009 and regional finals in 2012 and 2013.

For Seibert it's been about the relationships, not the wins.

Tate and West Florida Tech are two of the better softball programs in the area.

They have a nice rivalry going, but every year one get togeter is about more than just playing ball.

The seventh annual Strike Out Cancer game was at Tate Friday night.

Proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

Tate wins with the final score 10 - 2.

UWF's women's basketball will be playing for a national championship next week.

The Argos coming off the programs first ever regional title looks like a team that is not done making history.

UWF's roster is chock full of talent, but they also bring a rare level of toughness.

They feel that was the biggest difference maker in winning the South Regional last week.

Their two senior leaders proved that in the regional final. Alex Coyne quickly came back in after what seemed to be a serious knee injury and Katie Bobos overcame a gash above the eye in the first quarter.

Now 27 - 6 on the season, this kind of run seemed impossible all along, but the Argos are peaking when it counts most and really feeding off each other.

UWF is seeded seventh at the final tournament in Columbus, Ohio. They open up against second-seeded Cal Baptist on Tuesday.

It's new territory, but the Argos feel incredibly confident and loose.
