High school baseball is under way, and several area teams are shaping up as state championship contenders.

Franklin Road Academy is hoping for a repeat performance from last year when they went all the way, winning the Class A championship.

Outfielder Ryan Fesmire and middle infielder Grant Jernigan, two members of the 2000 Class A State Baseball All Tournament Team, are back and hoping to guide the Panthers back to Chattanooga and Spring Fling in May.

Also returning for the Panthers are outfielders Chris Guerra and Whit Dulin.
