Plays of the Week

Teams of The Week

Here is a look at the teams that made the biggest moves or had huge weeks as a team for each division

Phoenix – 4-0

The state of Arizona is always a powerhouse and one of the big things so far this season is Phoenix. Currently sitting at 9-0 after a 4-0 week. The past week saw a 5-4 win over GCU, a 6-5 win over Central Arizona, then a series sweep over Chandler-Gilbert in a 2-1 game, and then a 6-1 game. Phoenix started the season ranked #13 in the Division 2 ranks and looks to be rising up many ranks very fast if they keep this pace up. 

 

New Mexico – 5-0

New Mexico was one of the teams that sat out last year and had to rebuild from scratch for the most part. So coming into the season there were a few questions. Well, they are currently sitting at 10-3 after a 5-0 week. This past week they averaged 11 runs per game beating University of the Southwest 12-2 then sweeping Garden City 10-6, 16-12, 3-2, and 14-13. New Mexico is a team that had some questions to be answered early and looks like they have found the answers to them. 

 

Other Notable Weeks

Temple – 3-0 – Outscored their opponents 50-3

Walters State – 4-1 – Had 2 wins over #1 San Jac, 1 Win over #3 Chipola, and Lake Land. Lost the one game to #3 Chipola

Hot Team

This is a quick look at a few teams past 10 games. These teams are on a hot streak. And were going to tell you why

Nunez

Nunez is not a team many people think of when they think of teams that come out of Louisiana. But so far this year they have been one of the quietest hottest teams over the last few weeks. They have started the season 9-1 by way of Sweeping Southwest Tennessee, Sweeping Bishop State, and then taking 3 of 4 from St. Louis. Over this span, they are hitting .340 as a team with a .466 On Base %. They have put together 74 runs with 14 doubles. They have stolen 30 bases in this span as well. They look to be clicking on all cylinders just a few weeks into the season.
