Sports – Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the White County Warrior Baseball Team will take a trip to the state playoffs for the first time since the 2014 season.
The Warriors clinched a place in the playoffs with their win on Monday over West Hall, and even though they fell to the Spartans on Wednesday, their regional ranking of 10-4 currently places them in the third seed position behind North Hall and West Hall schools.
Dawson, Gilmer, and Lumpkin Counties round out the Region 7 AAA standings, but will not be contenders for the playoffs, and with only 4 games left in region play the battle will now be in seed placement.
The White County region schedule completes next week with their three-game set against the fourth-ranked Cherokee Bluff.
Our Warrior boys are at home tonight for game three of the bout versus West Hall, and you can listen to the action LIVE this afternoon, with the “Stonegate Auto – On Deck” pregame show starting at 5:40 pm, first pitch at 5:55, live on your home of the Warriors, WRWH 93.9fm.
