Chargers enter GCAA tourney as No. 3 seed


The Georgia Highlands baseball team saw its regular-season finale with Andrew College canceled due to rain over the weekend.

It had no bearing on the Chargers’ postseason prospects, though, as GHC was already locked into the No. 3 seed for the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association tournament, which begins today at Albany State.

At approximately 2 p.m., GHC will square off with second-seeded East Georgia State. The game will follow the tournament’s opener between top-seeded Gordon State and No. 4 seed South Georgia State.

The losers will meet in an elimination game at approximately 5 p.m., while the winners advance to Thursday’s semifinal round. Friday will see the two semifinal survivors meet once and possibly twice to determine the tournament champion.

For the Chargers (29-23, 15-14) to capture a second title in three years, GHC will need to improve on its season mark against the other three teams vying for the GCAA crown. GHC went 2-3 against both East Georgia State and South Georgia State. The Chargers finished 1-4 versus Gordon State.
