GCS Middle School Spring Playoffs

The 2018 middle school spring sports regular season has come to a close and teams in baseball, softball and boys and girls soccer are set for the GCS Middle School Playoffs!

Bryson Middle enters the baseball playoffs as the lone unbeaten, compiling a 10-0 (7-0) record during the regular season to win the South Division.  They will host 2-seed out of the East Division, Sevier Middle.  The Falcons finished 7-3-1 (6-1-1), one game behind division champion Northwest Middle.  The Panthers will host Mauldin, who went 3-2-2 in division play to just edge their way into the playoff picture.  In the East Division, one game separated 1st and 2nd place with the League Academy Bulldogs (7-3) edging out the Fisher Firebirds (6-4).  With the top seed, League will host Riverside Middle (7-2-2).  Fisher will travel to Northwood, who put up an impressive 8-2 regular season.  

In softball, two teams completed undefeated regular seasons.  Ralph Chandler went 10-0 (8-0) to win the South, while Blue Ridge went 11-0 (8-0) to claim the North.  Ralph Chandler will host Sevier Middle (10-1, 7-1) who finished tied atop the West Division, but lost the tiebreaker to Northwest Middle.  Blue Ridge will host League (2-4 in division), who grabbed a playoff spot after last years defending champions, Beck Academy, had to withdraw from the tournament as many of their athletes will be out of town for a school field trip during the playoffs.  Beck won the East with a 5-1 region mark.  With Beck out, Fisher slides into the top spot in the East and will host 9-2 Riverside in the opening round.  Northwest, by virtue of winning the tiebreaker over Sevier, will host 9-2 Woodmont Middle.
