Hounds open state in Jesup on Thursday

Jones County’s bid to host in the opening round of the state playoffs for the first time since 2010 fell flat when the Greyhounds were swept by Union Grove last week.

And adding insult to injury, Ola split with region champion Locust Grove to earn the No. 3 seed from Region 4-5A and drop Jones County to No. 4.

The Greyhounds now must travel to Region 2-5A champion Wayne County in Jesup for the opening round of the state playoffs.

The best-of-three series begins with a doubleheader at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. The third game, if needed, will be at 5 p.m. Friday.

The series was supposed to be played Friday and Saturday, but Wayne County agreed to move it up a day because Jones County has prom on Saturday.

Union Grove edged the Greyhounds 7-6 in eight innings in McDonough last Tuesday. The Wolfpack completed the sweep with a 4-1 victory in Gray on Thursday.
