We have finally hit the “home stretch” of region play and all across our state the next couple of weeks where region titles and playoffs dreams will be caught or dashed. To begin that tour, DP made an appearance at Holden Field to see two of the teams are in a three-way tie at the top of Region 1-5A. JL Mann is playing host to the defending State Champs, Hillcrest. JL Mann, Hillcrest & TL Hanna are all sitting at a region record of 5-2 going in to tonight with the Patriots holding a slight lead in tie breakers above the others. Early in the season, the Patriots won the series versus TL Hanna and also defeated Hillcrest on Tuesday night. With two games remaining in this series and Hillcrest and Hanna squaring off next week, there is still a lot to play for in the final days of the regular season. Also, Hanna is currently in a series with Mauldin and the Patriots still have a three-game set with Woodmont next week.
