Banks County’s diamond Leopards improved to an 8-5 record this past week as the teams picked up a doubleheader win over Rabun County.
While the school was on spring break this week, the baseball team remained active and has another doubleheader game ahead on Friday. The Leopards will head to Gainesville on Friday to face Riverside Military. Game one begins at 5 p.m.
On paper, the breakdown is leaning towards Banks County, which is averaging one run more than Riverside.
The Leopards have also given up fewer runs than the Eagles, 93 to date to the 106 allowed by Riverside.
Banks County returns home next week, as the Leopards host East Jackson on Tuesday.
