    Team has swept all opponents, including 2017 State Champs; West Lauderdale, last night; in playoffs.
    South State Championship starts Thursday with our biggest rival: East Central (just across river from us in Jackson Co). Grandson is junior on this team.

    Good luck

    Good luck! I like hs baseball a lot.

    Our local Mooreville Troopers baseball and softball (both 3A state champions last year) were forced to move to 4A this season, both were eliminated second round. We were just barely over the limit last year when they counted, and from what I hear just about dead at it this year.

    It has been a very tough season in all sports for the Troopers. We do not belong in 4A. We are still playng with 2A/3A caliber athletes and 1A caliber facilities. They are going to have to do something if we are to be expected to play in 4A.

    That happened to my Home HS in texas. We missed Nat'l losing streak by 1 game following that; but finally rebounded to knock off perennial powers in 4 & 5 .
    We'll work on redemption for you & knock out New Hope: in State Championship games starting Wed.

    Good luck! I thought New Hope looked beatable; we won the first game at New Hope and were positioned with our best pitcher to go for the series win at home, then he had just about a career bad night. He hit 4 batters, walked a bunch, and they got some timely seeing-eye hits. Had to go back on the road and lost.

    I don’t know if we’ll ever be competitive again in 4A. Most of our sports depend on a few 8th-graders to fill the roster and some even start, tough to get by in 4A that way.

    Yea, can be tough. Our 2nd baseman is Jr. We have a So. catcher that alternates with Sr. catcher; Depending on whos pitching. But we have 11 seniors in all. We have solid core of Jrs with some talented So. for next year, just won't have playing experiences.
