In the second game, Shad Johnson threw a 4 inning no hitter in a run ruled shortened game vs. Sneads AAA. In the third game, D’Anta Williams went the distance throwing a 6 inning no hitter vs. Altha. In the 4th game, we defeated Grand Ridge AAA team 8-4 advancing us to the district championship game. In the championship game, Blountstown defeated Havana AAA, 17-3, while allowing 1 hit.
