Baseball Advances to State Sweet 16

Congratulations to the Varsity Baseball team for defeating East Paulding in the 1st Round of the State Class AAAAA Tournament.

The Raiders hosted East Paulding for a best-of-three series on Wednesday, April 24 and Thursday, April 25, 2015.

Post-season play began Wednesday with a doubleheader. East Paulding won the first game 8-5 and the Raiders came from behind in the second game to win 5-4.

At the elimination game Thursday, a coin toss gave East Paulding the home team advantage; however, the Raiders won the game convincingly (12-2) without the batting advantage.

The Raiders advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time since the 2013 season and travel to Southwest DeKalb (map) for second round play.
