Georgetown HS baseball team in playoffs

The Georgetown Eagles roll in to the second round of the playoffs with a #1 state ranking and while that's a great achievement the team's goal is even bigger than that.

The Eagles have been the state's top ranked 5A team for most of the season.

"We talk about it and we tell them that they need to embrace it. It's going to be there. So we talk about it but it's not our goal," head baseball coach Adam Foster says.

The goal, especially for a top ranked team, who's only lost twice in 35 games this season is to win it all. 

That's something the Eagles have never done.

"We all want to be state champions and we talk about it every day pretty much. We've been talking about it for the longest time now. I mean ever since last year too. We had a great team last year. And now this year our team's really showed out, and played great together. We want it bad," says senior first baseman/pitcher Jackson Sioson.

Last season Georgetown got knocked out in the fourth round of the playoffs. 

Over the years the Eagles have had some really good teams but it come as a bit of a surprise that only one has ever made it to state. That was in 2015.

Senior catcher/outfielder Wyatt Childress says his brother Brady was on the 2015 team and went to state.

"So ever since I got to high school and been on varsity. I've just been in competition with im and tryin gto replace that sign out there. And hopefully it'sll say state champions instead of just state finals," Childress says.
