Bartow County was well-represented last weekend on the diamond when some of of the county’s best players showed their skills in the annual Georgia Dugout Club All-State baseball game.

Chaz Wilson, Austin Adams and Camden McGill represented Bartow County in the all-star games Friday, May 31, and Saturday, June 1, in Columbus.

The three Bartow players played on the Northwest team, which finished with a 2-1 record over the weekend. The squad lost Friday to the Northeast team, 4-2. It then defeated the Southeast team the next morning, 5-4, and beat the Southwest team Saturday evening, 2-0.

All three players were selected by coaches based on their performances during the high school season.

“It was pretty special to get selected because it just shows how good of a season we had,” Wilson. “It was interesting because of some the personalities and all the talented players that were there. It was a lot of fun.”

Wilson, who played for Cass High School, saw time catching in two of the games. He signed a letter of intent in November to play for Union University in Jackson, Tenn., which is a Division II program in the Gulf South Conference.

Cass High finished the season as sub-region champions and played two rounds in the state high school baseball playoffs.

Adams, who played at Cartersville High School, played left field in the game and had a hit in the opening game.

The Purple Hurricanes went on to claim the state AAA championship.

McGill, from Woodland, played both second base and shortstop during the three games and also had a hit. Woodland wrapped up 14-12 season overall and finished 10-10 in competitive Region 5-AAAAA.

Both Adams and McGill have committed to play for Georgia Highlands next season.
