The series did not go the way the Winder-Barrow High School players and coaches had hoped, but almost as soon as the final out was recorded, thoughts were on 2013.
WBHS was swept by visiting Forsyth Central Friday 4-1 and 6-2 in the opening-round of the Class AAAA state playoffs. Forsyth Central used a three-run seventh inning in the opener and a four-run first inning in the second contest to emerge with the series win.
The series overshadowed what had been another standout season for coach Brian Smith’s team. The Bulldoggs won 12 consecutive games at one points this season but fell in their final five.
