Cadets face Berrien in AA Final

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Monday, Benedictine will go for their second state title in baseball in the last five years - their third overall. 

Head Coach Kevin Farmer is trying to get his team to forget about what's been done in the past. He wants the team to concentrate on this year, and that means a final back home in historic Grayson Stadium. The Cadets are 29-7 overall, and 8-1 in the playoffs. The group found some motivation in seeing the finals in Grayson last year and not being a part of it. 

"To see those teams play at Grayson and weren't there, it just wasn't a good sight," said Cadets' pitcher, Kyle Jackson. "Wa want it to be us."

"Especially teams that played from Savannah, Savannah Christian. I want that to be us next year," said Cadets' pitcher, Walker Barlow. 

"Something about having the opportunity to play in Savannah at Grayson, and I'm sure in front of a lot of BC fans that will be at the ballpark, it says a lot, plus it allows these boys to connect a little bit with historic Grayson Stadium, and the opportunity to play there is great," Coach Farmer said. "I mean it's hard. It's hard to keep these guys focused, or locked in as you're saying, graduation is Sunday at 3:30, then to turn around and play for a state championship on Monday. There are graduation parties and everything else that's going on. It's tough. We just keep trying to remind them that, hey, think about the team, think about your brothers and think about what's at stake."

Benedictine and Berrien will play the first game of a doubleheader Monday at 5 p.m. in Grayson Stadium.
