Thomas County Central has been here before.
After winning the Region 1-AAAAA championship last season, the Yellow Jackets began the GHSA softball playoffs at home. Now Central, the No. 2 seed from Region 1, is hoping to learn from that experience to extend its stay.
“I would just like to see the girls relax and play like they can,” Central coach Robyn Trammell said as her Jackets host Ware County in the first two games of the best-of-3 series today, beginning at 5 p.m.
One aspect that Trammell hopes could aid that relaxed performance is that Central played Ware County earlier this season. Although the Gators won that meeting 5-3, the familiarity could lead to a calm Central squad.
“They’re good, they’re a strong team,” she said. “They’ve got a good pitcher, a very strong leadoff and a good catcher. They’re solid."
