Weather once again affected the baseball team this week: Unplayable field conditions forced the Tigers to cancel their game March 1 against Athens Christian and move their March 2 game to Prince Avenue in Athens, a 9-5 loss. The only game that went as scheduled was the Feb. 26 game against Riverside Military Academy (0-7) played at the University of North Georgia. The Tigers (4-4) dominated in a 20-4 victory, outhitting the Lions 15-2, scoring five runs in the first inning, seven in the third and another seven in the fifth to end the game after just five innings. Palmer Sapp went 3-for-3, collecting his 100th career hit in the process, with three RBIs. Hunter Barron also had three RBIs, while Bo Lewis, Easton Wright and Kristian Kelley each totaled two RBIs.
