Diane Wall/For South Strand News Georgetown High School’s baseball team finished second in the Mingo Bay Baseball Classic last week.


Georgetown High’s baseball team lost 6-2 to Carolina Forest on Friday afternoon in the championship game of the Mingo Bay Classic.

“Credit Carolina Forest, they scored and played solid defense and congratulations to them,” said Bulldogs coach Ben Waddle.

Georgetown opened the tournament with an 8-2 win over Central Pageland.

The Bulldogs broke open a 3-2 game in the bottom of the sixth inning with five runs.

Mark Alan Nash went 3-for-4; Brandon McCants went 2-for-4; Woody Woodall, Ryan Williams and Brandon Cribb all went 1-for-3; and Riley Jordan went 1-for-2.

Cody Thompson picked up the win on the mound.

The Bulldogs followed that up with a 13-3 win over Princeton, a 5-0 win over Dreher, and a 7-4 win over Battlefield to advance to the championship game.

Battlefield came into the Georgetown game undefeated, having given up only two runs all season.

“Our defense makes it pretty easy,” said Ryan Holcombe. “We’ve got a good infield and a good outfield.”

“Each night I felt like we had a different person rise to the occasion,” Waddle said.
