Indian Baseball Opens Season With Win

The Stephens County Indian baseball team starts the season with a win.

Sophomores Dawson Sorrells and Davis Swenson pitched six innings of shutout baseball and the Indians rolled to an 11-0 victory in their season opener on the road at Chestatee on Wednesday.

Sorrells struck out eight in four innings and allowed just two hits to pick up the win.

Griff Pruitt led the Indians offensively, going 3 for 4 at the plate with four RBIs.

The Indians also got two hits each from Bryson Fowler and Dylan Huff at the plate.
