Shared history between Bleckley all star divisions

Shared history between Bleckley all star divisions

The name for GRPA 9-10 division is "Mite," the 11-12 division is called "Midget."  One is pitching machine, the other live pitch.  While there's little similarity between the two divisions, there's a shared history in Bleckley County.

In 2006, Bleckley sent two all star teams to state.  The 9-10 girls and 11-12 girls.  The 11-12 finished state runner up, losing to Jeff Davis in the title game.  Two years previous, the 9-10 girls had won state with an undefeated season.

In 2013, the 11-12 boys finished third in state.  That was the best finish for any Cochran-Bleckley Rec. Department team since 2006.  On July 9, the 9-10 girls and 11-12 boys will be going to state.  The first time two Cochran teams went since 2006.

The girls play in Madison at 5 pm versus Heard County and the boys open state in Sylvania at 4 pm versus Irwin County.
