Ads, BHS dodge rain briefly
Dawgs edge WBHS


The Bearden Diamond Dawgs jumped on Ryan Potter’s back, and the senior pitching standout managed the load as Bearden (26-11-1) got passed William Blount 1-0 in District 4-AAA Tournament four-team bracket action at Phil Garner Field Sunday, May 3.

The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, May 1, but soaking rains over four days set tourney play back two days. The game itself was mostly played in between raindrops and was eventually delayed in the bottom of the sixth for an hour-and-a-half.

Senior Garrett Copeland drove in the game’s only run in the first inning. Copeland laced a liner to short and the fielder’s choice sent home sophomore Ty Greene, who advanced to third after a errant pick-off attempt sent the ball down the right field line.


From there Potter took over and the senior improved his record to 7-1. “Ryan has been good for us all year. He came in and did a good job today. Obviously when you give up none, you have great chance to win,” head coach Matt Buckner said.

After the rain delay junior relief pitcher Daniel Hullett closed the door on the Governors for the save.
