Last Tuesday (Apr. 17), the Tigers posted a 13-1 victory over Class 1A, Area 13 opponent Spring Garden.
A win over area rival Gaylesville today (Apr. 19) would give Cedar Bluff the area title over Gaston based upon non-area 1A win totals for the season. The Tigers currently have a 2-0 to a 1-1 advantage over the Bulldogs.
Should Cedar Bluff defeat the Trojans, the Tigers will host Area 11 runner-up Meek this Tuesday (Apr. 24).

Also for the homestanding Tigers, Cruz Butts went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBIs.
