IRWIN CO., GA (WALB) -

The appeal and the injunction are in the rear view.

The 2nd round of the Class-A Public baseball state tournament, originally scheduled for Thursday, will resume Monday and Irwin County can't wait to return to the diamond.

This started when Irwin county won an appeal to the GHSA at season's end that shook the power ratings in the Indians favor.

Charlton County High School took the matter to the courts, and 2nd round play 'halted.'

Though the Indians have built up rust not playing in over two weeks, they feel it was the right move for a better route to the championship.

"Had we not we would've been the 5-seed and got to play one round at home and had we won that round we would've been probably on the road the rest of the time," said 4th year Irwin county baseball coach Drew Tankersley. 

"So it was pretty important to us to move up. And again our appeal was valid because its been upheld, and now its been upheld again I guess in the court of law."

Tankersley made it clear he and the Indians had nothing to do with anything following the appeal.

They're just pumped for Monday's home doubleheader with Trion.
