MONTGOMERY, Ala.—The Huntingdon baseball team completed a weekend sweep of visiting Blackburn College on Sunday, taking the final game of the series 17-4 at Neal Posey Field.

Senior Chad Green paced the Hawks (17-4) with three runs batted in, while fellow senior Bryant Hall posted a team-high three hits. Hall and junior Greg Clayton each also added two RBIs, while senior Shawn Bezwiechin and junior Drew Harrell each scored three runs.
