Three teams begin, end season on top
A trio of Georgia High School Association teams ended the 2019 season where they began -- on top.
As the Georgia Dugout Preview Magazine released its final 2019 baseball polls for all classifications, Parkview (Class 7A), Gordon Lee (Class 1A Public) and Tattnall Square (Class 1A Private) started the season at No. 1 in their respective classifications and finished No. 1.
Parkview captured its second state title with a sweep of Hillgrove on May 20 at SunTrust Park. It was the Panthers' third state championship in five years.
Gordon Lee also won its second consecutive Class 1A Public state championship after taking two of three from Schley County. It is the fourth baseball championship in school history for the Trojans.
And Tattnall Square, who swept Savannah Christian in the Class 1A Private state championship series on May 21, won its second straight title and third in the past four seasons.
In Class 6A, Heritage-Conyers won its first state title in school history, dethroning two-time defending state champion Pope in a thrilling best-of-three series.
In Class 5A, Loganville joined elite company by winning its third consecutive baseball title on May 20 at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville. The Red Devils, who suffered heavy graduation losses from their 2018 squad, are the first team since Columbus High (2010-12) to win three straight state baseball titles. Loganville began the season No. 2.
In Class 4A, Northside-Columbus swept Cinderella Denmark in its best-of-three series to capture the school's first state title. Northside began the season ranked No. 9 and finished the regular-season third in its region.
In Class 3A, Pike County finished No. 1 after sweeping Pace Academy. The Pirates began the season ranked seventh in the preseason.
In Class 2A, Jeff Davis began the season unranked with a youthful squad that matured as the season progressed. The Yellow Jackets topped Rockmart in three games and won their second Class 2A championship in two years.
