The SE Regional Tournament run came to an end last night as a scrappy Virginia team, the number 3 seed, defeated Suwannee 12 – 1. The Dogs didn’t show up to play from the beginning. Pitchers struggled the entire game; falling behind batters and going deep into the count and then the Virginia offense capitalized with 10 hits and untimely errors by the Suwannee defense to put two big innings together. The tournament committee named the Defensive Player of the Game for Suwannee, Brandon Furry who had a diving catch in right field and the Offensive Player of the Game, Wyatt Jackson who was 1-2 with a line drive to the right centerfield gap. It was a tough way to be eliminated and the team is proud of it’s 3-2 record, yet disappointed in tonight’s performance. We’ll start preparing for next year to defend our State Title.
It was an experience of a lifetime for the boys and their families and we all want to thank those who made contributions to help get the boys to Huntsville, AL for a fun week of baseball. See you back in Live Oak…we’re ready to get home!
