Stalcup went 2-for-4 at the plate to lead Grovetown in hits.

Coach Billy Marchman said after the game, “We had a couple of big hits that left the yard that helped us put points on the board and our pitchers kept us in it with all 3 pitching in a relief type setup so they all were able to get in some work in a non-region contest. This Tuesday we face region opponent Harlem on the road for a 5:30 p.m. start and will host Harlem at home this Friday for a double header starting at 5:00 p.m. with game two approximately at 7:30 pm. This is a big week for our season goals and we need our faithful Bears fans to come out and cheer on these young men.”
