Dave Steele

-Parkview’s Mac Marshall will try to complete the regular season without having given up an earned run tonight against Grayson. Marshall, an LSU commit, is 7-0 this season for the No. 2 Panthers (22-3, 15-0).

-Class AAA No. 1 Buford lost its second game of the season Wednesday in a 2-1, eight-inning loss at White County. UGA-signee Spencer White gave up just three hits in seven innings but Matthew Hambrick got the win after tossing a scoreless eight. The Warriors won it in walk-off fashion when Will Flowers scored on a Buford error. Flowers enjoyed a successful senior night performance by going 2-for-3 at the plate and scoring both White County runs.

The Wolves (22-2, 18-2) had already clinched Region 7-AAA prior to the game.

-Carrollton clinched the Region 5-AAAA championship Tuesday with a win over LaGrange. The Trojans’ title ended a streak of 14 straight region championships by Columbus.

Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reporter David Mitchell detailed Columbus’ run in a column this week.

-Gainesville clinched the Region 8-AAAAA title Wednesday after a 13-1 blowout of Cedar Shoals combined with Loganville’s loss to Salem. Caleb Whitenton and Harrison Styles combined to throw a no-hitter for Gainesville.

-Calvary Day sophomore Chris Dashlor is hitting .540 on the season with 21 RBIs. Dashlor also pitches, and tossed a two-hitter against Islands last week. Dashlor is already getting recruited with interest from Georgia Tech, Duke and Georgia Southern.

-Bibb County superintendent Steve Smith threw out the first pitch in the newly-rededicated Smith Field at Central-Macon Wednesday.
