Loading up the team bus for a trip to Georgetown for the third time in as many days for one game, the Kershaw County American Legion baseball team took another step closer to earning a state tournament berth on Thursday.After receiving a call from Georgetown officials to stay in the bus and wait to see if Tuesday’s rains would dissipate, Post 17 received a call some 30 minutes later telling them to turn back. Wednesday, KC returned to Georgetown and took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first before the rains came, which suspended the contest. On Thursday, the locals returned to the South Strand and finished the job, taking a 9-1 win to go on top 2-0 in the best-of-five second round state playoff series.KC head coach Craig Smith, whose team improved to 21-7 with the victory, credited his players for getting the job done in spite of logging plenty of hours on the bus.“We’re real proud of our kids,” he said.
