Comments:   Note the poll sequence is unchanged however thanks to many sending in record updates, I have corrected those.

In a word of explanation, records are really harder to validate than one might think.  Class 5A number one Forney is either 20-1, 20-1, 17-3-1 or 16-1 depending on which media outlet or online web service you review.  Reminder that several larger school junior varsity play in lower classification varsity tournaments so wins and losses should not reflect against the varsity.  Forney coach Pat Eitel reported today that the Jackrabbits are 21-1 with only a 6-5 nine inning loss to Lovejoy marring their record. That is good enough for me.  And congrats to the great start.

Crawford beat Valley Mills 9-0 and Hico 20-0 to improve to 17-3-1 while West is 18-2-1 and the new number one in class 3A after beating Whitney 8-3.  Danielle Nors pitched the complete game one hitter and fanned five as West strummed out 11 hits.

In class 2A Harper was inadvertently listed twice in error and Honey Grove was omitted.  Harper is 16 and Honey Grove 20 in the corrected poll.

In a late game this past Monday night, Milano clipped Thorndale 5-3 in eight innings to take over first place, and the polls came out prior to the game so next week will likely see a change in positions.

Class 6A top ranked and unbeaten Hendrickson edged Pflugerville 2-1 in eight innings while two time defending champion Cedar Ridge out-scored Westwood 12-7 and Round Rock crushed McNeil 18-1 to close out the first round of district 13-6A competition.

Lorena trailed Robinson 5-0 in district action then rallied for the victory as Emma Tindell had three hits including a grand slam and finished with five runs batted in in the 7-5 win over the Rockets.

Wall is 4-0 in district play after beating Big Lake 5-3 while another poll order changer occurred in East Texas when Angleton edged Richmond Foster 1-0.  Angleton sophomore pitcher Aliyah Garcia (A&M Corpus Christi commit) struck out eight in the shutout win. Angleton’s run was scored by Ole Miss Commit Tate Whitley

Canyon beat Dumas 9-5 then rocked Caprock 10-1 to improve to 6-0 in district and 18-3 on the season.  Waco midway crushed San Angelo Central 17-0 as both Camryn Collier and Sophie Wideman collected three hits in the run rule shortened contest.

Congratulations to the Lady Thunderbirds of El Paso Coronado.  Coach Ashley Perez as the T-birds off to a 17-4 start.  I nearly wrote Lubbock Coronado in respect to that traditional power but the El Paso team is red hot and flying high.

In Central Texas the battle royal is Friday night as defending 4A champion LaGrange hosts Giddings.  Giddings beat Navasota and Caldwell 12-0 each in a pair of five inning contest as former LaGrange head coach Arthur Behrend guides his Buffaloes to the house of Leopards.

Beeville Jones is off to a 19-5 start and are 3-0 in district play, outscoring their opponents 37-2.  Hardin is 14-3-1 and 6-0 in district while Liberty Hill is battering district opponents.  Panther Samantha Barnett has 35 runs batted in with eight homerun while teammate Joely Williamson has seven dingers and 21 RBIs.

Grand view is 19-5, 6-0 and has won their six district game by a combined 85-4.  Elgin and rouse share the district 19-5a lead after Rouse beat East View 4-2.  East View had beaten Elgin 2-0 in their first meeting.  Hooks beat Hughes Springs 6-3 to move into a tie for first.  Marena Estell walked one and allowed two earned runs for Hooks who is 20-1-1
