Bleckley 8-u softball team headed to state as district top seed.

The GRPA District 1, Class C 8-u machine pitch softball tournament was played this past weekend in Sylvania.  Host Screven County, who will get an automatic berth into the state tournament which will also be in Sylvania, won.  They defeated Bleckley in two games, 5-13, 12-11 Monday night.

Because Screven already had a berth as host, it was determined earlier in the day that the winner of Hawkinsville vs Bleckley (the final two loser's bracket teams) would be district top seed.  Bleckley won that game 17-13 and plays July 11 at 6 pm.   Hawkinsville will be the second seed and play at 7:30.
