Over the weekend, The SA baseball team took on the Seminary Bulldogs in the south-state championship with a trip to Trustmark Park on the line.

The Saints dropped game one to Seminary where they were run-ruled 11-1 at home in a night where they failed to get much going offensively, which left some questions on how the team would respond in games two and three.

“We didn’t panic [after game one] because we knew that we had the pitching left to beat them in two games,” Junior Pitcher Holland Townes said.

Holland Townes pitched four innings of fantastic baseball before Senior Sam Roffwarg relieved him. The Saints came alive offensively in game two when Banks Tolley hit a three-run homerun to put the saints firmly in the lead and they didn’t look back.

“We succeeded because of our great pitching performances in games two and three, and we hit really well too,” Junior Infielder David Ducote said.

The Saints claimed game three by a score of 6-5 powered by a gutsy pitching performance by C.J. Carron where he threw seven innings and struck out eight batters. Holland Townes and David Ducote went yard lead the team offensively.

“It always means a lot to play in South State, and it means, even more, to meet the same team for the fourth year in a row in the playoffs. We certainly knew what to expect from their talented hitters and were able to grab two clutch wins,” Townes said.

The SA baseball team will face North Pontotoc in the state championship where they will look to win their first state championship since 1985.
