    GBC beat the Chattanooga Colonels 9-1 with Luke Gesell pitching well and going the distance. Cobie Vance helped the cause with base loaded no outs in first by turning 2 on a hard grounder up the middle. In the bottom of first he hit a bomb about 280′ down the left field line on a 300′ field and sped around the bases for a 2 run homer to get GBC rolling. Carter Williams, Jacob Williamson, and Trevor Clemons all hit he ball well to pace the offense.

    Next up was the Knoxville Stars. GBC run ruled them 11-3 after 5 with Kameron Pruitt and Jacob Williamson pitching for GBC.

    In the championship game, Kameron Pruitt started, Jacob Williamson came on in relief, and Carter Williams closed out the 12-11 victory over the Georgia Roadrunners from Alphretta, GA. Trevor Clemons made a great catch up against the fence from the catchers position on a pop up foul ball with the tying run on third base with 2 outs to seal the win.
