When people think about Texas Junior College Baseball you generally think of the San Jac’s, the Howard’s, the Grayson’s, and the McLennan’s. But there is a part of the state that is just as good that gets very little love due to the fact that they have the “Division Three” Title or Stigma.
The South District in Texas has been arguably the most successful division 3 district for the past decade. This might have part to do with the fact that they play earlier than most other division 3 schools. But it also has to do with the fact that since 2011 this district has had 6 national title games (Eastfield-2011) and Tyler (2014-2018), with 5 National Titles (2011, 2014-2017) with Brookhaven in 2019 finishing 3rd at the tournament.
As you would expect this is also a very team district with talent-
Tyler’s- Adam Davis, Cooper Rawls, and Heath Hood
Coastal Bend’s-Jacob Wilson, and Eric Martinez
Brookhaven’s-Brett Wagner, JJ Davis, and Andrew Acierni
Cedar Valley’s-Mario Pena, and Corbin ThompsonRead more
For the first time since the 2011 season, the Representative from this District was not Tyler. After almost a Decade of Dominance, they had been dethroned. Brookhaven Claimed the Title and ended up finishing 3rd when all was said and done.
This district also plays one of the toughest schedules across the board compared to most other Division 3 schools. That is due to the fact that they play half of their schedules against some of the Top Div 1 schools in the country in San Jac, McLennan, and Grayson to name a few when they play any out of conference games.
