After running through their sub-region schedule in impressive fashion, the Statesboro Blue Devils left no doubt as to who the class of Region 3-AAAA is this season. Statesboro scored three times in the first half and the issue was never in doubt as the Devils (15-2) defeated the Academy of Richmond County by a count of 5-1 Wednesday night at Womack Field to claim the region championship. “This was a goal we set coming into the year,” SHS coach Nick Thrower said.
