With six games to go, Blessed Trinity is undefeated against Georgia teams

They may be the best high school team in the nation. They’re certainly in the top 10 — and they’re the runaway favorites to take the GHSA class 4A championship, which they lost last year in three nail-biting games.

Blessed Trinity has long been known as a baseball powerhouse in Georgia, located in one of the more baseball rich locations in the state — Roswell — the heart of the north Atlanta suburbs. While they’ve always been a powerhouse, I don’t know if they’ve ever been *this* good. Yes, they entered the season ranked #1 in state. Yes, they had high expectations. Yes, we knew they’d be one of the premiere programs in the nation once again. But, did we ever imagine they’d potentially finish the season undefeated against ALL Georgia teams? I don’t think so.

While Blessed Trinity has lost two games and sit at a very disappointing 22-2 (sarcasm font), both of their losses have come in neutral site invitational tournaments to teams from Florida — tournaments which feature the most premiere programs in the entire nation. When it comes to Georgia teams, the Titans have had no trouble taking down everyone. According to our calculations, they’re 19-0 against in-state rivals, including 7-0 at home, 8-1 on the road, and 7-1 in neutral sites. They’ve only played half of their 12 scheduled region games with all six remaining games against Chestatee and West Hall. With successful sweeps of these two teams, Blessed Trinity will have finished the year undefeated (25-0) against every team they faced from the state of Georgia.

That’s historically good. And to emphasize just how good this 2018 squad is, take a look at these numbers:

Batting average: .297

On-base percentage: .411

Earned run average: 2.01

Those numbers are good enough for the #1 rank in the state, according to MaxPreps and a #7 National rank according to the XCellent 25 National High School rankings.

All eyes for Blessed Trinity are on the state title, but to take a lesson from this year’s Virginia men’s basketball team… a team with championship expectations who was defeated by the last-ranked UMBC Retrievers… don’t take anything for granted. Keep taking it one day at a time, don’t get ahead of yourself, and fight in every game. If they can do that, it’s going to be a tough road for any team that gets in their way.

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your blog.
    It appears as though some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    Thank you

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a
    great article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and
    don’t seem to get anything done.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
    and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
