They're region champions for a reason. The easiest and most logical reason is because the best and biggest arms belong to Crisp County.
Those Cougar arms were on display Saturday in the regular season finale against Tift County, and a familiar result followed. Crisp County produced only two runs and it was still good enough to win, 2-1.
The AAAA-Region 1 champs for the third straight year used four pitchers and a seventh inning double by Devin Taylor for the senior day win. Taylor knocked a high-arching rope that flirted with the right field foul line to start the final inning. Stewart Tyler turned a sacrifice bunt into the winning run when the Blue Devils overthrew first base.
Crisp County allowed ten total runs en route to a 14-0 region record. As the region champs, Crisp County hosts Spalding next Friday in the GHSA State Playoffs. Tift County will travel to McEachern for the opening playoff series.
