The GPC Jaguars are off to a hot start and are preparing themselves for another rugged season in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association.
The Jags currently sport a 16-4 record.
Wes Armstrong and Christopher Madera continue to led the offense. Both are batting over .400 and driving in runs when given the opportunity.
The pitching staff is holding its own as well. The staff is led by lefty Clay Garner who has picked up right where he left off last season when he was named an honorable mention All-American. Garner is 4-0 with a 2.86 ERA in 22 innings of work.
Adam Clark, Sam Bragg, Nikolay Uherek, and Andy Threatt have also contributed solid outings to give GPC one of the finer starting rotations around.
The bullpen features a pair of dominating arms in Landon Hayes and Christian Turnipseed. Each has been awarded one win and they have pitched a combined 17.1 innings without allowing a single run.
Hayes has saved a team-high four ballgames.
GPC’s next game is at home versus Shorter College JV on Thursday, March 1. The first pitch of the doubleheader is set for 3 p.m.
GPC plays their home games in Covington, Ga. at the Newton campus.
Admission to all home games is free.
