The Winder-Barrow High School baseball team ventured into enemy territory Friday but returned home as subregion champions.
Coach Brian Smith’s Diamond Doggs defeated Loganville High School, the No. 2-ranked team in Class AAAA, 4-3 on the Red Devils’ home field. Dalton Carter’s three-run homer in the top of the fifth inning gave WBHS a one-run lead which it would not relinquish. As a result, the Bulldoggs are Subregion A champions and have now guaranteed themselves a spot in the state playoffs for the fourth consecutive year.
LHS meanwhile is Subregion B champion and will meet WBHS at Charles W. Maddox Complex Thursday for the start of a best-of-three series beginning with game one at 4:30 p.m. Even if a third game is not needed, the two teams will play Friday at 5:55 p.m., also in Winder.
