With the preliminaries now out of the way, the Winder-Barrow High School baseball team will begin the task of vying for the Region 8-AAAAA title.
The Bulldoggs, who were 4-1 entering this week, will travel to Gainesville High School Friday for the first region game of 2013. The teams will meet again Monday in Winder. Both contests are set for a 5:55 p.m. start.
“We have been getting better,” WBHS coach Brian Smith said Sunday as his team practiced. “We have been facing good competition and that makes us better. There are still some things we need to do better. We have been able to use different pitchers to this point and that should benefit us down the road.”
