Conference Leaders Emerge
The conference baseball race is starting to look more clear. Ross and Harrison were the first teams to double digit wins. Ross (11-4, 7-0) has been impressive early on, to say the least. The Rams have allowed just seven runs in seven conference games. Harrison (13-2, 6-1) has allowed just five runs in as many conference games. Little Miami (9-5, 5-2) has played well; the Panthers are positioned nicely to try and make a run within the conference. Don't look past Northwest (8-5, 3-4). The Knights haven't played as well in conference games as they would like, but they have a nice pitching rotation that could win some games late in the season.
Just like in baseball, Ross and Harrison sit atop the conference standings. Harrison (9-3, 7-0) has been dominant in conference, outscoring SWOC opponents 69-18. Defending champions, Ross (7-4, 4-1), have been solid defensively and pitching, but the Rams have struggled to score runs with just 59 in 11 games. Little Miami (9-3, 4-2) has scored the most runs in the conference (112) - they had 156 all of last season.
Harrison's Shelby Scott has put together a nice season so far. Scott is hitting .667 with 36 at bats and a conference-best 24 hits.
