Loganville catcher Sarah Glick tags out a Walnut Grove runner during the teams’ first meeting last month. Loganville and Walnut Grove face off Thursday for the Region 8-AAAAA title.

The battle for the Region 8-AAAAA softball title runs through Walton County in 2020.

Loganville hosts Walnut Grove for a doubleheader Thursday which will decide which team wins the region title. Loganville needs a sweep to claim the championship while Walnut Grove just needs to win one game thanks to the Lady Warriors’ 2-1 win over Loganville in Game 1 last month.

Loganville’s last region title came in 2018 in Region 8-AAAAA while Walnut Grove’s last championship was claimed in 2015 as a member of Region 4-AAAA.

Loganville cemented its berth in the title game with a sweep of Jackson County on Saturday. 

Ashleigh Miles got the win in the circle in Game 1, throwing a complete game and allowing two hits while striking out eight. MC Sorrell led the Lady Devils offensively going 2-for-2 including a homer.  

Miles picked up another win in Game 2 by going six innings and allowing six hits while striking out five.  Offensively, Lindsey Parish was 2-for-2 with a 3-run home run.  Katie Plummer also had two hits including a home run. Madison Keener was 4-for-5 with a double.
