MACON, Ga. — With their 11 state championships, the Tattnall Square Academy baseball team has built a reputation as one of the best high school programs in the state, but they've also garnered attention as one of the top teams in the entire country.
This year's team, which capped off back-to-back state championships, was nationally ranked inside the top 50 by four different polls.
In the Max-Prep small schools rankings, which include schools of a thousand students or less, the Trojans finished as the fifth best school in the country.
Tattnall has been in the spotlight before, in fact last year, they were the runner up in the small school rankings.
The Trojans have been dominant the past few years solidifying themselves as a powerhouse on the diamond. Since 2008, they've won eight state championships, with two runner-up finishes.
Head coach Joey Hiller says it's been a special run he does not take for granted.
"I mean it's phenomenal. I mean people don't understand how well we did, how difficult it is to do what we do," Hiller said. "For us to do it and keep on doing it the way we have done it, it will be years and years before you look back and really appreciate what it is you have been apart of."
