The Lumpkin County High baseball team is in second place right now in the Region 7-AAA standings, but the Indians (14-1, 12-1) still control their own destiny in terms of winning the school's first region baseball title.
JEFFERSON - The Jefferson Dragons (9-2, 5-1) returned home Friday where they faced off against Region 8S-AA leader North Oconee for the second time this season. The Dragons lost the first meeting between the two teams on March 24.

Who would have thought that this year's baseball season would not hinge on the right arm of a fireballing 6-foot-3 senior or timely hits in a close game, but on the acts of a little old lady commonly known as Mother Nature?
Lumpkin County scored 12 runs in the second inning and finished the game with 13 hits en route to a 15-2 win in five innings against Flowery Branch on Saturday in Dahlonega. Drew Uptegraph (5-0) earned the win for the Indians (14-1, 12-1 Region 7-AAA), allowing only two runs in three innings.
FLOWERY BRANCH - Flowery Branch freshman Imani Cross isn't expected to win baseball games with his role as a courtesy runner, but that's exactly what he did in the seventh inning against North Hall on Friday night at the Hog Mountain Sports Complex.
