ELLAVILLE – The Schley County baseball team will be playing Pelham on Monday, May 7, in the GHSA Class A Public State Playoffs, as was originally planned.

According to the Georgia High School Association (GHSA), the Court of Appeals for the State of Georgia on Friday, May 4, suspended the order entered on Wednesday, May 2, by the Superior Court of Charlton County. This ruling effectively reinstates the Class A Public State Playoff brackets as they were originally scheduled by the GHSA.

According to the GHSA, the Class A Public second-round series will be played on Monday, May 7 and Tuesday, May 8. As for Schley County, they will host Pelham in a doubleheader on Monday, May 7, with the first game beginning at at 4:30 p.m. If the Wildcats win both games, they will move on to the quarterfinals, which will be played on Friday, May 11, and if necessary, Saturday, May 12. Should Schley County split with Pelham on Monday, the third and deciding game of the series will be played on Tuesday, May 8, at 2 p.m. If Schley County wins the series against Pelham, they will play the winner of the best-of-two-game series between Bowdon and Johnson County.
