Eagles Capture 1st Baseball State Crown!
For the first time in the history of the sport at Brentwood School, the War Eagle varsity baseball team are state champions! By virtue of identical 3-1 scores over Macon's Windsor Academy Knights on Friday, May 25 and Saturday, May 26, Coach Brannon Bonifay's club claimed the 2012 Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) Class AA state championship and finished the season with a near-perfect record of 31 wins and just one loss, including a 21-game winning streak dating back to March 24.
On the way to the title, the War Eagles went undefeated (14-0) through their Region 1-AA schedule, and also turned in an unblemished 8-0 mark through four rounds of the state playoffs. Outstanding pitching, solid defense and timely hitting were the keys, particularly in the championship series versus a valiant and determined Windsor Academy squad.
