An accurate reflection

This week's Louisiana Baseball Coaches Association top 10 polls came out today.

I've got to say, they are a pretty accurate reflection of the baseball around here.

Locally, only three teams are ranked in a top 10 - Calvary (No. 1 in 1A), Captain Shreve (No. 2 in 4A) and Evangel (No. 10 in 1A).

Calvary and Shreve certainly belong in those positions. Evangel, well, I guess the Eagles get points for playing a tough schedule. Otherwise, I think you'd almost have to kick them out of the poll at this stage of the season.

But what the poll accurately reflects most is how down some traditional teams are in this area.

Look in 5A. There is no Airline in the top 10. There is no Southwood inthe top 10. These are schools that have been strong in recent years.

Drop down to 4A. Where is Parkway? Where is Haughton? Again, these are schools that have been strong in recent years.

The point is this appears to be a transitional or rebuilding year for prep baseball locally.
