First Presbyterian Christian Academy downed Memorial Day 15-0 in three innings last Wednesday to finish as the second-place team in Region 2-AA.
The Highlanders had one final regular-season game Monday at Edmund Burke Academy, but the final score was not received by press time.
FPCA already has clinched a playoff spot, and the second-place finish adds the bonus of hosting the first-round series. According to Highlanders coach Ryan Harmon, FPCA will host Georgia Christian from Valdosta on Friday in a best-of-three series. The first game starts at 2 p.m. Friday and the second game will immediately follow. The third game, if needed, will be at 11 a.m. Saturday.
“We finished with a 7-3 record in the region and improve to 10-7 overall,” Harmon said. “I’m very proud of the way these young guys fought all season to get us to this point.”
FPCA finished region play having beaten every 2-AA team at least once and twice swept their region opponent.
