For the first time in program history, the Georgia Highlands College Chargers played on their own field.  The Chargers hosted Bryan College in a doubleheader, and the boys in blue and orange broke in their new home in style, sweeping the Lions in decisive fashion.  Declan Dun was tabbed to start game one, claiming the win after four innings of work in a mercy rule shortened game.  Dun cemented his name in the GHC record book by recording the first strikeout and the first win in the new stadium.  Luke Orfi got a couple of pieces of history etched next to his name as he led the game off with a single for the first hit in the new park, then swiped the first stolen base immediately afterwards, and scored the first run on a Clay Wiesen base hit.  To top it off, Orfi launched the first home run at the new field when he led off game two with a long shot over the left field wall.  When the dust settled in game one, the Chargers were on top 19-3.  Game two was a continuation of the first, with GHC routing the Lions 9-0.  Andrew Arnold was credited with the win after two innings of work and Davis Newman led the offense with a stellar 3-3 day at the plate.  

The Chargers are back in action this weekend when they host a four game series against Central Alabama Community College on Friday and Saturday.  First pitch both days is 1PM.
