State title series opening date moved to Monday

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Scheduled graduation ceremonies have caused the GHSA Class AAA state baseball finals to be moved for the second straight year.

Columbus High is set to graduate on Saturday at 1:30 pm ET, so the Blue Devils' showdown at Ringgold for the title will now begin at 4:00 pm ET on Monday, with a third game if needed to be played on Tuesday at 2:00 pm.

Last year, Spalding's graduation conflicted with the finals, forcing that series to also begin on a Monday. The Blue Devils went on to beat the Jaguars two-games-to-one to capture their second straight state championship.
