Region titles are great, but the goal each year for Columbia County baseball teams is a state championship. That said, you have to win region playoff games before a state crown is possible.
Harlem, Evans and Greenbrier each earned two-game sweeps as the opened the postseason last week, and in doing so, locked up spots in the state playoffs.
Harlem improved to 17-6 on the season with a pair of easy wins over Hephzibah. The Bulldogs took the first game 11-0 win, and followed that up with a 14-4 lopsided victory in Game 2.
