Lambert scored 10 runs in the final two frames at the plate to runaway with the series sweep of rival South Forsyth in a 14-5 win Monday at War Eagle Field. With the victory and North Forsyth's 10-0 result over Northview, the Longhorns walked off the field having clinched the Region 6-AAAAAA title—the third in a row for the once nationally ranked powerhouse. By now many of the players on Lambert's team have become accustomed to the success, evident in their rather subdued celebration once the contest concluded, but with a first-round playoff exit still on their minds there's little room for wavering focus.
