Statistics in sports serve a purpose, but they never tell the full story. They may shed a little light that will help you eventually get the big picture, but it takes more than numbers, just like it takes more than Xs and Os, to get the job done.
The Bartow High School Yellow Jackets close off their 2012 season Friday night. They will be on the road to play Lake Wales, a game that typically befuddles Bartow and results in a Jacket loss. You have to go all the way back to 2005 to find a Bartow win over Lake Wales and it was 2004 when Bartow won at the home of the Highlanders. Worst case scenario, if it happens that way this year, Bartow ends up 4-6. If the team can break the Lake Wales jinx, they can point at a 5-5 record.
