A 6-0 setback at Richmond Hill on Wednesday bumped South Effingham out of the race for the top spot in the Region 2-AAAAAA baseball standings.
With one game left, the Mustangs are 10-7 in region play, two games behind 12-5 Richmond Hill and Glynn Academy with only one contest left in the regular season. Effingham County sits at 11-6.
All four teams are assured of state playoff berths. The Mustangs, last year's region champs, will be a No. 3 or No. 4 seed.
