Assistant Athletic Director
Congratulations to GCA senior, Alex Blackburn (OF/LHP), on being named to the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association All-State Team! Alex is also seeing success on the Varsity Football team this fall.
We're so proud of you, Alex, and excited to see you finish your baseball career for the Rams next spring!
The baseball team's 2021 season has come to an end.
The baseball Rams season came to a close on in Chattanooga on Saturday afternoon at the end of a 3 game series with Silverdale Baptist Academy.
Game 1: The Rams gave up 3 unearned runs and fell by a score of 1-3.
Game 2: The Rams offense exploded and the Rams won 9-1. Alex Blackburn and Blake Courson combined for the win on the mound. Offensively, Riley King had two doubles while Blackburn and Ian Setzer record one double each. Blackburn has 3 RBIs while Setzer and Eli Crowder each had 2 RBIs.
Game 3: Rams fell 3-7. The offense showed life late in the game scoring 2 runs in the 6th inning and 1 run in the 7th inning, but the early deficit was too much to overcome.
The Rams finished the season 9-19-1.
The Rams win to advance in the post-season.
The Rams travelled to Lakeway Christian Academy to take on the Lions in a district play-in game. After splitting the series with LCA during the regular season, the Rams secured a 7-0 victory. This win gave them the 4 seed in the district which earns them a trip to the region tournament.
The Rams will take on Silverdale Baptist Academy in a doubleheader in Chattanooga on Friday, May 7 in a best of 3 series. If Game 3 is necessary, they will play on Saturday.
The baseball team has finished their regular season district schedule and continues to play out-of-district games in order to grow and prepare for the district tournament.
