Seeding still yet to be determined for Hawks, Lions

The Trinity Christian Lions and the Heritage School Hawks know they are in the playoffs and will open the GISA Class AAA Tournament on the road.

Now, the only thing left to be decided is who is the third seed and who is the fourth seed.

Heritage (3-4-1) currently has a ½ game lead over Trinity (3-5).

However, the Hawks still have to finish their suspended game at Loganville Christian before the playoffs pairing are set.

The Hawks will pick up their game with Loganville tied at 9-all in the top of the eighth on either Monday or Tuesday.

If Heritage wins the suspended contest, they will edge Trinity and head into the playoffs as the third seed. If Loganville wins, Trinity, who beat Heritage twice would win the tiebreaker and enter as the third seed.

Trinity finished up its regular season with a 3-1 loss to John Milledge.

The Lions Daniel Shoates pitched 4 ? innings and gave up just two unearned runs.

Kenny Swaggart hit a solo homer for the Lions for their only run.

Shoates also helped his own cause with a 2-3 performance.

The Lions also lost 3-2 to the Weber School on Thursday after leaving the bases loaded in the second and third.

Trinity is now 1-5 since spring break.

HERITAGE KNOCKS OFF DOMINION CHRISTIAN: The Heritage Hawks’ Mack Wilkens pitch his first game since getting hurt early in the season and threw two strong innings to help his team to a 5-1 victory.

Teammate Luke Smith then pitched the rest of the way and finished with five strikeouts.

Trevor Henson had the big day the plate with two RBIs. Brian McKinney, Smith and Wilkens also had an RBI en route to the win.
