Schley County’s season comes to an end in Elite 8 against Charlton County

FOLKSTON, GA – With the exception of the champion, the seasons of all other teams end in a loss. Such was the case for the Schley County Wildcats (SCHS) against Charlton County (CCHS). In spite of a solid performance by senior pitcher Trypp Lumpkin in Game 1, the Wildcats fell to the Indians 3-1. With their season on the line, SCHS was hoping to bounce back with a win and send the series to a third and deciding game. However, a nine run first inning by the Indians set the tone the rest of the way in Game 2, as the Wildcats would go on to lose to CCHS 13-1 and end their season in the quarterfinals of the GHSA Class A-Public State Playoffs on Tuesday, May 10, at Charlton County High School in Folkston, GA.
