SCHS Varsity, JV Baseball Win

The Stephens County Indian baseball team picked up its second win in a row as they defeated the Lumpkin County Indians 11-1 on Thursday evening in Dahlonega.

Stephens County swept the season series from Lumpkin County with a strong pitching performance from Kain Dyer-Hewitt. Dyer-Hewitt went six innings, allowing seven hits but only giving up one run while striking out six.

The Indian offense scored double-digit runs again, led by Austin Lord at the plate as he went 4 for 5 with five RBIs after pitching a gem in Wednesday’s victory over Lumpkin County. Ryan Cleveland pounded an opposite-field home run to add to his team-leading total, while Mason Long went 3 for 3 while reaching base on all five of his plate appearances.
