Wolfpack fans will trade in their lawn chairs for box seats this Friday. The Greenbrier baseball game against Statesboro, originally scheduled as a home game, has been moved to Lake Olmstead Stadium.
The home of the GreenJackets will change into Greenbrier's home for one night as the team faces off against Statesboro in a key Region 3B-AAAA game.
"It's going to be a very important region game," Greenbrier baseball coach Rodney Holder said. "That setting in that situation is going to be good for us in the long run."
The game Friday is still scheduled for a 5 p.m. start. Tickets are available in advance at the school or at the gate. Advance tickets are not available from the GreenJackets stadium.
The big region game isn't the only change on the schedule for Greenbrier. Both of the Wolfpack's games against Harlem this season were postponed because of rain. Those games have been rescheduled for a doubleheader at Harlem High School starting at 1 p.m. April 14.
Lakeside's baseball team found revenge against Harlem last Thursday in a 5-2 Panther win. The Bulldogs knocked off Lakeside 10-5 earlier this season, but Lakeside's J.C. Huffman led the charge to keep a repeat performance from happening. Huffman drove in three runs in the three-run win and went 2-for-4 with a home run. Panther Matt Zelgewicz got the win on the mound as Lakeside improved to 5-4 on the year.
Evans earned a 9-8 win over Cross Creek last Thursday in dramatic, come-from-behind fashion.
The Knights trailed 6-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning but erupted for eight runs in their final at bat to escape with a one-run win. Senior Kyle Golden went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple while senior Pat Husbands picked up the win in relief. The Knights entered the week with an 8-2 record.
