BCA won the opening game of the series 4-3, but then fell to the Trojans 4-3 in the second game of a doubleheader Saturday. Robert Toombs advanced to the semifinals by sweeping Georgia Christian in its quarterfinal matchup. This is the third consecutive season the BCA Knights have reached the semifinals. Two years ago BCA fell to Crisp Academy. Last spring the Knights defeated Crisp on their way to the state finals against David Emanuel. After this school year, BCA will move up to Class AAA in the GISA.
•At stake: Winner of series advances to state finals against winner of Crisp Academy vs. David Emanuel
