“It was just Monroe’s day to win it,” Gray Station coach Brandon Davis said. “But I am very proud of the boys for their heart. We had times where it could have been easy to just throw in the towel, but they never did. This game is going to make them hungrier for a championship when they go play high school ball next year.”
Gray Station finishes the season at 13-3.
The ’Hounds jumped ahead with two runs in the top of the first in the championship game played in Forsyth. Zack Griffin singled in Chandler Ramage and Jacob Walden, who had walked and singled.
Gray Station scored two more in the third to go ahead 4-0. Walden and Cody Miller both walked and moved up on a wild pitch. Griffin drove in one run when he grounded out to short, and the second scored on a squeeze bunt by Harrison Bryant.
Monroe scored its first run in the bottom of the third on an RBI-double by Seth Swancey.
