Although there were not many games to cover the entire country but we are going to give a quick recap of what happened from the nations top teams as well many that do not generally get the same love as some of the top schools.

Also this is the first week that we are not having a National Top 25. Even though we have had one every week since we started producing Junior College content we felt that with the slow start to the year and teams slowly getting back going we will give it a few weeks before we adjust anything as far as the National Rankings.

The top 5 teams (#1 Southern Nevada, #2 Wabash Valley, #3 McLennan, #4 John A. Logan, and #5 Walters State) did not play this weekend.

#6 Northwest Florida went 1-2 this past weekend with losses to both Miami Dade (12-5), and #15 Florida SouthWestern State (5-1), With a win over Hillsborough (12-5).

#7 Grayson played a 3 game set with Wharton and if you have listened to the most recent Juco Pod, then you know what happened in game 1 with a 20-6 Win. The next day during their double header they split the double header with a win in game one (9-5) and a loss in game two (4-7).

Here is a look at the teams that made the biggest moves or had huge weeks as a team for each division
Div 1: St. Petersburg (3-0)
Throughout this past weekend you could say this was one of the biggest surprises when we were looking at all the box scores. That to be said is not a dis by any means to St. Petersburg. They are always well coached, and are almost always a solid team. But, just like any team in florida they get overshadowed.

To kick off this weekend with two games Friday. The first was against Pensacola State. They won 8-7 in 7 innings behind the bats of Brayron Acevedo (1-4, HR RBI) and Zeph Hoffpauir (2-4, HR, 3 RBI).

In game two they took the win from #12 Chipola in a 6-4 contest. They were led by a solid team offensive game. The big key was Leo O’Shinkski in relief. He came in in the 5th and locked down Chipola with 3 innings allowing just 3 base runners (1 Hit, 2 Walks) to go with 6 K’s to keep them at bay.

To round out the weekend they won in a decisive manner against Sante Fe 8-1. Gabriel Ricones had a day going 3-4 with Homer, 2 RBI, and 2 runs.

Week 5 Teams and Players of the Week

Div 3: North Lake (2-0)

When looking at Division 3 schools in Texas one that almost ALWAYS gets overlooked is North Lake. This year they are not off to start. Getting blown out in their first 2 series by LSU-Eunice and McCook. They caught fire last week beating Southwest College Prep 14-3 and 14-4. In just the 2 games they played this past week they outscored Mountain View 23-0 (they finished the sweep of them Monday with a 21-8 win. So outscored them 44-9 in 3 games.)

CCCAA: Marin (3-0)

Many of you have probably never heard of this NorCal team. Or even know where Marin County is. It is just north of San Francisco and to be honest if there was just one team of the week Marin would take home that honor. 

This past week they took on the then ranked #10 San Mateo Bulldogs, and came out with a Sweep. You read that right a Sweep of a top 10 team!

It started Tuesday when they beat the bulldogs 12-4. Marin put up crooked numbers in their 1st four innings. 2 in the first, second, and third, and 4 in the fourth. Then they scored another in the 5 which put the score to 11-4. They put one more up in the 7th to get to the final score. This game was lead by Dionathan Cornet who was 3-4 on the day with 4 RBI’s and 2 runs. On the mound the win went to Zach Tonnerre who went 6 strong innings striking out 7. 

The next win came on Thursday when Marin traveled to San Mateo and got it 8-4. This is another game that started of fast and they never looked back. In the first Cornet had an RBI double that drove in Anthony Pomi. The next batter Joey Loveles hit into a Fielder's Choice which drove Jacob Berg in for their second run. In the second they put up a 3-spot thanks to a Bases loaded walk and then a 2 RBI double by Loveles. Their final runs came in the 4th when they put up yet another 3 spot. 

The final game of the series took place back on Marins home turf that Saturday. This game was dominated more by the pitchers even though it was a 6-0 win for them. Owen Hamilton got the start and went 6.2 innings with 4 punch outs with a walk and 6 hits. Tyler Shelley came in for the last 2.1 innings struck out 2 with just a walk and a hit.

Div 1: Grayson (4-0)

Honestly, there was not a team that made a bigger statement across the entire country then what Grayson did this past weekend. This young season has been filled with tons of aww about their Conference Rival McLennan and Grayson was getting tired of people overlooking them.

Grayson, Mclennan, San Jac, and Alvin all traveled down to Houston this past week to take part in the Annual Tournament of Champions hosted by San Jac. Grayson came in swinging. They kicked it off in game 1 versus San Jac with a 5-3 Win. This was behind the Duo of Wade Elliott and Braden Carmichael (Oklahoma).

In their second game against San Jac it came down to the wire scoring 7 runs in the bottom of the 7th (6 runs), and 8th (1 run) to put them ahead. This game was led by the duo of Jordan Thompson and Elliot yet again. Thompson was 3-3 on the day with an RBI, and 3 RUns Scored while Elliot continued to tear up the ball going 2-4 with a run and another Double. They wrapped up the weekend with a 9-0 win over Alvin. This game was led by Thompson who was 3-3 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI’s and 2 runs. 

Div 3: Coastal Bend (3-0)

Coastal Bend is in a weird spot in the country to where most of their schedule is against the best of the best at the Division one level. Well, this past week they showed that they belonged with them taking 3 games from Region 14 Power Panola. They took game one 6-5, thanks to a 6 run 6th inning in which Eric Martinez launched a 2 run homer. He ended the day going 1-4. On the mound, Nolan Cox got his 2nd win of the season going 7.0 innings with 6 Strikeouts allowing just 1 run. In-game 2 Coastal took it 3-1. Thanks to 2 late runs in the bottom of the 6th they pushed ahead. Grant Rogers was the stand out for them on the mound going 5 strong innings striking out 11 while allowing just 1 run, he, unfortunately, didn't get the win. Rounding out the sweep Coastal took the last game 6-5 again coming from behind. Scoring in the 7th and then walking it off in the 9th.
