PREP BASEBALL: Social Circle’s historic season ends against Charlton County in Class A-Public semifinals

FOLKSTON, Ga. — The Social Circle Redskins’ monumental season came to a close in the Final Four of the Class A-Public Playoffs in Charlton County on Monday, May 16.

Social Circle lost the doubleheader 4-0 and 16-6, respectively.

It was the bats that brought the Redskins in.

In Game 1, the team went a combined 4-for-26 at the plate while walking and striking out eight times. Then, in Game 2, the Redskins seemed to find a spark on offense. They scored six runs in the first two innings.

But, after five innings, they were still trailing 7-6.

After going two straight scoreless innings, Charlton County exploded for nine runs in the sixth and seventh innings to extend their lead even further.

Social Circle ended up not scoring another run after the second inning.

Logan Cross led all Redskin batters at the plate 3-for-4 with an RBI. Mitchell McCullough had two RBIs while Ty Lemaster and Lucas Langley also each recorded an RBI.

But that wasn’t enough to deal with Charlton County’s high-powered offense on Monday.

As a result, the Redskins’ 2022 campaign ends at 27-13 overall with a third-place finish in Region 8A-Public. Throughout its playoff run, Social Circle also won on the road at Trion, Wilcox County and ACE Charter.

Head coach Kevin Dawkins told his team how proud he was of every player’s efforts throughout this season when the game ended in the final.

“They have much to be proud of,” Dawkins said. “They did nothing but compete day in and day out. Charlton are a very good team and there is nothing to put in their mouths. I just couldn’t be more proud of them.
