BCHS clinches second straight region baseball title

A pair of four-run innings blew open what was a close game as BCHS clinched their second straight 4-AA title with a 14-4 win at Lamar County Tuesday.  The Trojans had given Bleckley their only region defeat this season.  Austin Williams struck out ten including striking out the side to end the game.

In postgame remarks to the team, head coach Brad Davis encouraged the team to enjoy the moment and be happy about winning on the ride home.  But he also wanted them to remember how they felt last year after losing at home to Fitzgerald in round one of the playoffs because he didn't want to feel that way again.
