2018 Georgia High School Baseball Preview

We’re just five days away from the first GHSA games of the season for most schools across the state. With some help from our friends at MaxPreps, we rank the top 20 schools in the state.

20. Locust Grove (2017 record: 28-7)

19. Tattnall Square Academy (Macon) (30-5)

18. Marist (Atlanta) (25-17)

17. Woodstock (26-17)

16. Hillgrove (Powder Springs) (25-12)

15. North Hall (Gainesville) (33-11)

14. Starr’s Mill (Fayetteville) (31-6)

13. Loganville (30-13)

12. Allatoona (Acworth) (31-5)

11. Winder-Barrow (Winder) (30-4)

10. Lassiter (Marietta) (24-10)

9. Brookwood (Snellville) (29-8)

8. Etowah (Woodstock) (28-16)

7. Savannah Christian (Savannah) (33-3-1)

6. Walton (Marietta) (27-8)

5. Mill Creek (Hoschton) (34-8)

4. Parkview (Lilburn) (31-6)

3. North Gwinnett (Suwanee) (35-4)

2. Pope (Marietta) (34-6)

1. Blessed Trinity (Roswell) (36-6)

 

A few takeaways from these rankings:

  • Gwinnett and Cobb flex their muscles again — Gwinnett owns 4 of the top 10 teams (including 3 of the top 5!!), while Cobb County owns 3 of the top 10 teams. When it comes to the top 20, Cobb holds the edge over Gwinnett (with Cobb’s 5 teams over Gwinnett’s 4). One of the great rivalries each year in high school baseball is the all-star matchup between Gwinnett and East Cobb, which is very well attended by scouts with some of the best baseball talent in one of the most talent-rich states on full display.
  • North metro is where it’s at — All but ONE team (Savannah Christian) in the top 10 hail from northern Metro Atlanta (Gwinnett, Cobb, Fulton, and Cherokee Counties). In fact, all but four of the top twenty teams hail from north of Atlanta, with no representation from anywhere south of Macon, with the exception of Savannah Christian.
  • Defending champions — six of the eight 2017 GHSA class champions are included in the top 20 list including #2 Pope, #7 Savannah Christian, #8 Etowah, #13 Loganville, #15 North Hall, and #18 Marist. The two defending champions missing the cut? Jeff Davis (Hazlehurst) and Schley County (Ellaville).
  • A powerhouse back on top — Despite losing the AAAA state championship two games to one (which included a nail biter 4-3 finish in game 3) to Etowah at State Mutual Stadium in Rome last year, the Titans top the list this season with high expectations to return to the AAAA state finals. Defending champion Etowah (who finished a whopping 11 games behind Blessed Trinity in the regular season last year), clocks in at #18.

Remember, these are just pre-season rankings (not official GHSA rankings). We’ll keep you posted on all of the latest in GHSA baseball action throughout the year with special coverage of the GHSA postseason in April and May. With that being said, we wish all of our high school teams throughout Georgia the best of luck as their seasons officially kick off next week!

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast
    for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
