    Gallatin County 4, Hardin County 0
    Gallatin County traveled to Hardin County last Wednesday for its final Greater Egyptian Conference game of the season and came away a 4-0 winner, and in the process, the Hawks clinched the GEC championship. 
    Gallatin County got on the board in the third inning when Tyler Crayne came around on a Jared Jackson single. Then the Hawks struck for three in the fourth, two of which came in on a big 2-out double by Jared Jackson. 
    On the mound Wes McGuire controlled the game scattering six hits while striking out 11 to pick up his 10th win of the season.
    "Wes was very good today, and we didn't supply him with much offense, but hopefully we can get that turned around before the regionals," head coach Dave Cruson said. "It was a nice win, Hardin is a very good team and we are very pleased with how things went out there today."
    Gallatin County 1, Waltonville 0
    Gallatin County made the long trip to Waltonville on Thursday, without benefit of their seniors, who were gone on a trip. 
    The Hawks struck for the only run of the game in the first on back-to-back hits. First, a Jared Jackson single and then a Marcus Wargel double.
    The single run would be all Hawks starter Zach McGuire needed as he went the distance giving up just three hits and striking out 11.  No Waltonville runner advanced past second base in the game.
    "We were really poor on offense today, even though we were missing a couple of pieces, that is no excuse," Cruson said. "Zach pitched great and our defense played very well behind him, this was a nice win."
    With the two wins, Gallatin improves to 24-3 on the season and they finish GEC Conference play 12-0 for their second consecutive conference title.
