THE JACKSON County baseball team is in the state playoffs for the second-consecutive year, but it will be as a no. 4 seed following a 10-2 loss at Hart County in the Panthers' region finale.
Ben Brissey had two hits and two RBIs to lead Jackson County (18-7) offensively. Travis Vickers had the Panthers' only other hit.
Jackson County gave up six runs to the Bulldogs in the second inning in the loss and finishes at 9-5 in region play. The Panthers will play non-region foe Oglethorpe County this Friday and will travel to Blessed Trinity next Friday for the first round of the Class AAA state tournament.
