Jones County is edged by Veterans, swept by Locust Grove
So much for first place. Jones County’s foray into the upper echelons of the Class 5A rankings did not go so well.
The Greyhounds lost close home games against second-ranked Veterans 4-3 and third-ranked Locust Grove 3-1 last week, then they were drubbed 11-1 Monday in a rematch at Locust Grove, which cemented its hold on first place in Region 4-5A with the sweep.
Now the Greyhounds (13-6 overall/7-3 region) find themselves tied for third in the region with Union Grove (12-9/7-3) behind both Locust Grove (17-3/10-0) and Ola (11-7/8-3).
