Juco's Region 7 and 17 going down to the wire!
April 28, 2012By Greg Bradley of TennesseeSportsNet
With the regular season winding down for the Columbia State Chargers, the attention is focused on East Tennessee. C-State will travel to Cleveland State next Friday and Saturday to close out a memorable season Charger fans hope will conclude with Columbia State remaining on top in the Tennessee Community College Conference.
The latest rankings have the #5 Chargers 20-4 with a one-game lead over #9 Walters State 19-5. If the two teams end the season tied the Chargers would win the tiebreaker, after beating the Senators two out of three this season.
Georgia's Region 17 has a similar scenario. Darton College, Middle Georgia will battle to finish the season on top in Georgia. Darton still has to play both teams. With Georgia Perimeter in the mix as a spoiler. Darton plays Middle April 24th, 27th and 28th. The Cavaliers play Perimeter on May 1st, 4th & 5th.
Middle George has taken over first place as of April 23rd. MG is 23-5. Darton is in second at 19-5 followed by GPC is 16-8.
If the Chargers hold on to win the TCCAA regular season, CSCC and Region VII's tournament winner would travel to Georgia for the East/Central District Tournament May 18-21.
All the answers will be revealed following next weeks action in Cleveland Tennessee and Albany Georgia. Stay tuned!
A big series starts tonight (April 24) at Darton College as they host the current Region XVII leader Middle Georgia. Final score was Middle Georgia 14, Darton 2.
NJCAA #13 MGC ups their GCAA record to 24-5 while Darton dropped to 19-6. Three games remain in the series. Georgia Perimeter, third in the region, beat Andrew College 11-2 moving to 17-8. GPC finishes with a season ending series with Darton starting May 1st.
