Dalton Morris tries to turn a double play as Section's Jed Sparks (30) slides in at second base during North Jackson 7-3 win in the 2021 Jackson County Tournament finals.


The team that has dominated the Jackson County Baseball Tournament of late is the No. 1 seed for the 2022 edition.

North Jackson, winner of four consecutive county tournament championships, is the top seed as its goes for a fifth straight title.

The tournament begins with No. 3-seeded Section playing No. 6 Skyline in a quarterfinal game at 10 a.m., with the winner playing No. 2 Pisgah in the semifinals at 2 p.m. On the other side of the bracket, No. 4 North Sand Mountain takes on No. 5 Woodville in the quarterfinals at noon. The winner advances to play top-seeded North Jackson in the semifinals at 4 p.m.

The championship game is scheduled for 6 p.m.
