Gainesville has a tough region schedule. Nationally ranked #17 along with powerhouse and region opponent Loganville who is ranked #7 nationally and just defeated #5 nationally Grayson….gonna be an interesting year!

Hey all the Gainesville fans need to come out this Friday (March 15th) to Ivey-Watson and support the baseball team. We play a VERY good Winder-Barrow team, who in my opinion could easily be ranked as well. Realize when you have a great show in town. First pitch is 5:55pm….BE THERE!

AAA Cartersville playing a AAAAAA pre-region schedule Lost to AAAAAA #1 ParkView 10 to 7. Beat AAAAAA# 10 Brookwook 8 to 0. Also beat AAAAAA # 7 Lassiter 11 to 3. I guess that does not qualify to be ranked in AAA

LMAO. George is right. ScoreAtlanta fell asleep at the keyboard by the time they got to AAA. They are gonna look pretty silly in a few weeks. Those AAA rankings are an ugly strike out…. for their lead off attempt. Lol

Big Red Nation – Pound your chest about your “tough” region. You got lucky that Loganville and Winder are in the same region as you. Otherwise, your coach would schedule the same week out of region teams that you guys normally play so he can inflate his W-L record. How did that perfect regular season work for you last year? You guys are so overrated its not even worth talking about; but I will anyway. Consider this, 2nd baseman at UT, SS was at Coastal Carolina, OF at Furman, P at UGA, another P committed to UGA, C committed to UGA. 6 out of 9 D1 players? What do you have to show for it? When your feet hit the ground every morning you should thank the Almighty for DeShaun Watson. He is the only reason Gainesville is relevant in anything.

Milton not in top 10?one of the Best pitching staff in the state and several D1 position players. Whoever put the rankings together really missed on Milton.

Agree with George.
Cartersville beats ranked teams in top three classifications, yet no ranking.
Who is the genius behind rankings?
