Week 4 Teams and Players 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

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). Elliot led the way at the plate going 3-4 with a double, RBI, and scoring 2 runs. On the mound, Carmichael went 6 strong innings allowing just 1 earned run and striking out 7. They toppled Alvin in game two 16-2 behind the combined efforts of Wade Elliot (LA Tech) and Davis Powel. Elliot was 4-5 with 2 Doubles, and an RBI, while Powell was 3-4 with 3 Doubles, 3 RBI’s and 3 Runs. 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.

Week 3 Preview

Another week and even more games! Over the next 4 days (Thursday-Sunday) there will be just over 350 games taking place all across the country. We take a quick look into 3 series this week that we think are going to play a big role in rankings, as well as see how some teams will match up against some of the countries best. 

#23 Crowder vs #25 North Iowa area 

Here are two teams that usually don't get started till a few weeks later in the season just due to the fact that they play in cold weather most of the time. And what would you know this series is already being questioned because of Weather. This is the first time out for both teams and it should be a good series all in all. 

NIACC is coming into a new era with a new head coach in Drew Sannes after the former Head Coach Travis Hergert accepted the MILB assistant Pitching Coordinator Job with the Phillies. That though doesn't mean there is not a lot to look forward to for NIACC. Coming into the year they have a lot of upside. Being one of the Top teams in Iowa coming into the season. They are lead on the field by Utility SO Dylan Danielson (Oral Robertson), and SO Infielder Anthony Catalano (ULL) both look to lead the charge for them at bat and in the field. 

For Crowder, they come to the weekend having played 2 games already. As of writing this, they are 1-0 with an 11-7 win over Labette on the 1st of February. So far their offense in that one game was led by Rod Criss who went 3-5 with 3 Doubles, 3 RBI’s, and 2 runs, and Josh Patrick who also went 2-3 with a run and 1 walks.
