COVINGTON -- Alcovy's baseball team left no doubt as to who the best team in Newton County is after run-ruling its opponents in the county tournament on Saturday.
The Tigers defeated Eastside 13-1, scoring 12 runs in the fourth inning, and beat Newton 14-3 in six innings with 11 coming in the sixth.
Beau Thomas got the win against Eastside while Taylor Jackson worked the mound against Newton.
Beside's good pitching, Alcovy also had its bats working for a total of 23 hits, nine against Eastside and 14 against Newton.
The Tigers' Bowen Braswell hit the only long ball, against Eastside, with seven of their hits going for doubles.
Hitting a two-bagger against Eastside were Braswell, Thomas, Alex Cooper and Bryan Daniel.
Pacing Alcovy at the plate against Newton were Jackson, who went 3-for-4, Garrison Readdy and Michael Aventurato, who were 2-for-3 with a double each.

Going for extra bases were Jake Gresham (double), Will Gayler (double) and Ryan McCranie (double).
"We swung the bats well and played good defense. The pitchers kept the walks down and allowed the defense behind them to do the job," Eastside coach Michael Poor said. "All in all it was much better, and I was happy that everyone on the team contributed in the win."
Pitching for the Eagles were Seth Allen, who got the win pitching three innings where he gave up four hits while striking out two and walking one.

Rockdale's tennis teams dropped a pair to North Oconee as the girls were blanked 5-0 while the boys won one but lost four.
"It was some great competition and even though we lost, we challenged them pretty good. Most of the games went to deuce," Rockdale coach Stephen Sansing said.
"Our No. 1 singles (Shoman Kasbekar and Ciara Chesser) really competed hard, so these matches will help them in the long run. I was proud of our boys No. 2 doubles (Jacob Dollar and Yuvraj Windlass) as they really competed -- they came back from down 3-0 in the first set to win the first set. After losing the second set, they took control midway through the third set and won it easily.
"Jacob Dollar is really establishing himself at the net, which is something we've been working on at practice. It's starting to pay off."
