The Thomas Jefferson Academy Jaguars won one and lost one, this past week on the diamond.

The Jags lost to defending state champions Bethlehem Christian by a score of 17 to 0 on Tuesday, but tuned around and defeated Twiggs Academy by a score of 23 to 1 on Thursday.

Coach Chuck Wimberly stated after the two contest, “we simply were over powered on Tuesday by a much bigger and more experienced Bethlehem team, who had no weaknesses. The good thing for us was that we did not let the loss to Bethlehem keep us down, and we rebounded with a huge victory of our own.”

The Jaguars were lead on Thursday versus Twiggs with key hits from Zeke Sammons, Justin Haycraft, Rhett Gardner and Trevor Rowland. Cam Bailey got the start for the Jaguars and finished the day with his 3rd victory of the season for the Jaguars.

Tuesday’s game saw very little offense for the Jags, however Sammons, Rowland, and Gardner were able to manage hits against the Senior lead Bethlehem team who gave the Jaguars their second region loss on the year.

The Jaguars head to the break with a 5 and 2 record on the year, and will start back up on April 14th.
