In this post we look at the top 25 Toughest Div 1 Schedules this year as well as a team that we feel might not lose a game and possibly put the 2009 Howard teams record in jeopardy.

Div. 1- South West District Preview (Reg. 5)

This District is one that has a rich history of postseason success. Between the years of 1999-2009, there were 6 National Titles and 7 National Title games. One of those being the best record arguably ever recorded by a college baseball team in 2009 when Howard went 63-1 and a National record 56-game Win streak. Since 2009 there have been 6 different schools that have made the trip. Only 1 has gone back to back years winning the Region 5 title (Midland ‘13-’14). There also have been only 1 National Title game since the ‘09 season when McLennan was the National Runner up in 2015. 

Last year's winner was New Mexico claiming its first region crown since 2007. The Thunderbirds, unfortunately, went 1-2 BBQ losing to Chattahoochee Valley and Monroe in the first two days of the tournament. 

Previous Winners: ‘19 New Mexico, ‘18 Temple, ‘17 McLennan, ‘16 Cisco, ‘15 McLennan (National-Runner Up), ‘14 Midland, ‘13 Midland, ‘12 Cisco, ‘11 Grayson, ‘10 Temple, ‘09 Howard (National Champs, 63-1 Record), ‘08 Grayson (National Champs), ‘07 New Mexico (National Runner Up), ‘06 Temple, ‘05 New Mexico (National Champs), ‘04 Grayson, ‘03 Grayson, ‘01 North Central Texas (National Champs), ‘00 Grayson (National Champs) ‘99 Grayson (National Champs). 

This year's crop of players coming could be argued to be one of the best in recent years. McLennan's Jalen Battles (Arkansas) and Connor Phillips take home both the Pre-Season Player (Battles) and Pitcher (Phillips).
