The Forsyth Central High School baseball team has advanced to the quarterfinals of the state Class AAAA playoffs.

The visiting Bulldogs swept a doubleheader from Lee County on Wednesday night in south Georgia, winning a pair of one-run games.

In the opener, Central held off the Trojans 2-1. In the nightcap, which didn’t start until after 9 p.m., the Bulldogs triumphed 5-4.

With the sweep of Lee County, which is just north of Albany, the Bulldogs advance to face the winner of Alexander and Whitewater next week.
