Despite all of the offseason turmoil in Milledgeville, one thing stayed consistent for Georgia College Baseball; winning.

After the sudden departure of long-time head coach Tom Carty and his staff in May 2016, the school turned to Augusta University's Jason Eller to revamp the program and get the Bobcats back on track. Eller has done just that through the first six weeks of the season.

"We're calling ourselves a little bit of a green machine so we're having an identity going," Eller said. "We're having a lot of fun with that."

Out of the gates at 14-6, Georgia College is once again in the business of bringing home a Peach Belt Conference Championship. Offensively, they have the horses to get it done averaging over 9 runs per ball game including wins of 20-0 and 17-4 over Montevallo this past weekend at home.

Not only have the winning ways remained the same at GC, but there's a new attitude and energy that Eller has made infectious.

"We're serious when we need to be serious but it's also a lot of fun," said Senior Pitcher Brady Walsh. "When we're putting up 17 runs a game, we're having a ball in there."

Georgia College will hit the road for a three-game series at UNC Pembroke starting Friday.
