The Callaway Cavaliers took care of business against Jordan, and now they’ll turn their attention to a region-championship showdown against Heard County.

Callaway (17-6 overall) beat Jordan three times last week to improve to 8-1 in Region 5-AA.

Callaway and Heard County are tied for first place in the region, and they’ll play three times this week with the title on the line.

Callaway will host a single game on Tuesday, and the teams will play a doubleheader on Friday at Heard County.

It will be the final three region games for both teams.

Last season, Callaway beat Heard County three times on the way to a 12-0 region record.

Brooks Bledsoe pitched two innings and he held Jordan to two hits, and Austin Barber finished it with a scoreless seventh inning.
