THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WALB) - Only the elite are left. Thomasville baseball one of six south Georgia teams still vying for a state championship.

”Our mantra’s been all along you know, we’re going to go as hard as we can for one game and we will figure out the next game after that. We’re not worried about game two, we’re worried about game one. We’ll throw everything we’ve got at them in game one and we’ll see where we are after that and reset and do the same thing. Because they bought into that process and they believe in it and they believe in each other, it’s allowed us all to be successful. You know, it’s a give and takes relationship,” said McDougald.

Game one against Callaway is set for Tuesday at 4 p.m..., game two will follow.
