CAC, Harding and Genoa in my opinion. How good is Tuckerman and Fountain Lake?

Ashdown and fouke shld be in the mix also they are battling it out with genoa in that conference. The east kid for fouke hit 2 bombs on Genoaís ace last night but lost 8-6 so everyone better be watching out for him when hes at the plate . Ashdown has 3 gd pitchers but there def is suspect and It just depends on what Genoa team shows up to play although they look like they are starting to put it together under there new coach.

Rosebud is tough this year at the plate. They have a good arm. Well coached it seems like.
Elkins can swing it but pitching is suspect and they have an arrogance about them that is tough to watch sometimes.
Valley Springs has a really tough lefty (Nelle) but struggle driving in runs.
Greenland isn't consistent enough this year but Anderson is good.
Charleston has an ace (Ross) and can swing it, but have nothing after Ross on the mound.

These are the 5 best I've seen in my area in 3A. None are going to win state, but all competitive teams.

That's one thing about Bramlett at WR his team might have double digits losses but he plays a very difficult schedule every season. His teams are definitely ready when the postseason rolls around.

What are your thoughts on Max Preps Rankings entering district tournament week? 
(I only went with the top 16 teams since that is all that makes the state tournament.)

1 - CAC
2 - Harding Academy
3 - Genoa Central
4 - Tuckerman
5 - Fountain Lake
6 - Charleston
7 - Haskell
8 - Ashdown
9 - Elkins
10 - Manilla
11 - Mayflower
12 - Baptist Prep
13 - Fouke
14 - DeWitt
15 - Gosnell
16 - Atkins


Region 1 has 2 teams in top 16
Region 2 has 6 teams in top 16
Region 3 has 4 teams in top 16
Region 4 has 4 teams in top 16

Some really good teams out of Region 2 won't even make the state tournament.

Booneville with a big win vs Charleston last night 4-2.  They are a dark horse in region 2.  Great hitters and defense and maybe enough pitching to get to the state tournament.

What happened to Mountain View last night? They collapsed at the end of the season with 5 straight losses including a loss last night to a worse than average Green Forest team. They started conference play 8-0 and since haven't won a game and have a run differential of 55-18.

Harding is the 3 seed in their own district tournament... Tuckerman and Palestine Wheatley have both beaten them in conference. Don't think they should be #2

Whoever made this is going off of tradition or something. Because this HA team is a shell of what they usually are. 3A seems to be down a little this year. There are no clear front runners. That should make these last few weeks pretty fun.

Walnut Ridge wins 13-8 over Gosnell to win the district.

1 - Walnut Ridge - quite a few big kids that can swing it. Iíve seen 2 pitchers that can win with when theyíre on

2 - Gosnell - Young athletic team with speed. Downfall is pitching and this time of year it helps to have it. Theyíre scrappy and will be a tough out. No real big bats but seem to use their speed to manufacture runs and play D.

3 - Manila - from what Iíve seen similar to Walnut Ridge. 1 above average pitcher with another good enough to win when on. Looked to hit about 1-6

4 - Piggott - Havenít seen

I think with playing the day before and then playing 18 innings back to back the next day would cause a lot of teams to have pitching issues, but that's the breaks of trying to get the tournament in in one day.

That is an excellent question.  Yellville played them during spring break without several starters and lost pretty handily, but on the return trip they beat us 9-5, but we were low on pitching after several conference games.  They looked pretty solid each time. But we definitely competed with them the second time.

Was a good district tournament. If you played five times you would probably get five different winners. WR is probably the most talented/coached team, Gosnell is athletic/but young. Manila has good players/coach but need to leave half of the complaining parents at home. Piggott can hit that ball 1-9.

Mt. View got a played the easier part of the conference at the start and then got a little cocky when they played GF. GF has a decent arm and he just threw strikes and got MV to pop the ball up. GF is hitting the ball well right now but have nothing on the mound after Bailey. I'd guess Valley will beat them in the 3-4 game at Clinton. The Rosebud - Clinton game should be a good one today for the #1 seed in the region.

I thought Elkins would be really good this year.  They didn't play well in the district tournament for sure.  Now they have to play Clinton first round of regionals to get to the state tournament.  It's all about your draw and how well you are hitting the ball as a team in regionals and state tournament.

People said that HA was down last year.  The Max prep rankings are definitely based on strength of schedule and they have played a top 5 schedule up till now.  I guess we will find out this week.

 So for those who know whatís the book on the 3a - 2 teams. Strengths / weaknesses / predictions? Just from looking at scores alone it looks like Harding Academy is peaking and playing good ball at the right time.

I think Clinton beats them. Elkins doesn't have much on the mound. No velo at all but decent breaking stuff. They just rely on pitching to contact and playing solid D behind it. Elkins looked bad in the district tourney. They acted like they didn't even want to be there.

Clinton has a good arm with Hogue and play good D behind him. They are the hottest team in 3A right now I'd bet. After Hogue, Clinton has very little on the mound that is consistent, but the same story is true for Elkins. It should be a good game.

What about Valley Springs and Lincoln or Rose Bud and West Fork?

Does anyone know if they are even playing today at Westfork? or Lincoln? I heard they had to possibly move some games.

Elkins beat Clinton 17-3

Valley's lefty held Lincoln to 2 hits and struck out 13+ I believe. Is he going to college anywhere? Lincoln just relied on Valley to make a couple errors and that did them in.

GF played Charleston and lost 6-0. They played them a lot better than expected. Ross had to throw the entire game.
