Raiders Sweep Southwest DeKalb; Advance to State Baseball Elite 8

Congratulations to the Varsity Baseball team for sweeping Southwest DeKalb in the Sweet 16 round of the 2019 State Class AAAAA Tournament.

The Raiders traveled to Southwest DeKalb Thursday afternoon, May 2 for a doubleheader to kick off the best of three series. Fortunately, the Raiders swept the doubleheader 11-4 and 15-0, making Friday's game three unnecessary. With the win, the Raiders advance to the Elite 8 round of the State tournament for the first time since the 2007 season.

 

In the Elite 8 round, the Raiders, the #2 seed from Region 6-AAAAA, will host Locust Grove, the #2 seed from Region 4-AAAAA, in another best of three series.

A doubleheader at Raider Park kicks off the series on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. First pitch of the first game is 4pm; second game will start 30 minutes after the end of the first game.

Game three, if necessary, will be Thursday, May 9
