The Parkview Panthers captured their third-straight, and ninth all-time, GHSA baseball state title with a (4-0, 3-2) sweep over North Paulding in Monday night’s double-header at Truist Park. Parkview entered the finals with a 16-game winning streak and had outscored its previous four rounds of postseason competition 79-23. North Paulding was able to limit the Panthers’ explosive lineup through the first four innings of the series, but clutch hitting from Tennessee—commit Ryan Spikes put Parkview up 1-0 in the top of the fifth inning following his sacrifice fly. Spikes, who has been phenomenal throughout this postseason, continued making an impact to close the door on Parkview’s Game 1 victory. The Panthers led 1-0 with two outs left in the top of the seventh inning when Spikes tripled to right field—driving in Sam Smith to increase the lead to 2-0. Teammate Colin Houck singled to drive in Spikes and then Houck scored later on an unearned run that made it 4-0. Spikes relieved Mason Brown of his pitching duties and recorded the final three outs to solidify the 4-0 victory. Brown earned the win and recorded six strikeouts, while allowing just two hits.
