The Class 5A No. 1-ranked Cartersville Purple Hurricanes swept a doubleheader with Hiram Monday evening at the Cartersville Baseball Complex to set a new school record with 26 regular season wins.

In Game 2, Canes’ pitchers Geoffrey Gore, Dawson Bishop, and Jackson Harwell combined on a four-inning no-hitter, and the trio struck out seven of the thirteen batters faced.

Canes’ hitters smacked five homers in the doubleheader. Miles Owen, Gavin Shrewsbury, Harrison Childers, Caleb Daniel, and Maddox Frazier hit one each.

Owen finished the night with three hits and five RBIs. Childers had three hits and three RBIs. Frazier added a double and totaled three RBIs. Shrewsbury had three RBIs and Daniel completed the twin bill with four RBIs.
