NJCAA D2 Strength of Schedule

With the season starting either right after this goes out or in the past if you are just reading it you know one thing is for sure. This year Junior College Baseball is about to be one of the Hottest things in the baseball world that nobody is talking about.. Well that is expected for use.

So since our Pre-Season Ranking came out we decided to take a look at some of the toughest schedules across the country.

In this post we look at the top 25 Toughest Div q 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. 2- North Plains District (Reg. 11, 13)

The North Plains has been dominated the past decade by teams from Iowa. of the 16 Teams that make up this district, 7 of them are from Iowa (Kirkwood, North Iowa Area, Southeastern, Des Moines Area, Iowa Central, Iowa Lakes, and Ellsworth), While the rest of the District is made up of teams from Nebraska, Montana, North Dakota, Michigan, and Minnesota. 

Despite having big teams make it to Enid every year this District has had the unfortunate “Dry Streak”. The Last National Championship game came back in 2003 when Iowa Central finished second to Grand Rapids. Northeast (NE) was the winner in 2019 making the schools first trip to the World Series ever in just the 2nd year; Kirkwood’s last trip was in 2018; Southeast (NE) went in 2017, North Iowa Area went in 2016, 2015, and 2013; Southeastern (IA) went in 2014, and Des Moines Area takes the last two spots over the past decade with trips in back to back years in 2011 and 2012.

The talent is at an all time high in the North Plains (and everywhere else) this year. It is lead by:

Kirkwood’s- Luke Llewellyn, Josh Fitzgerald, and Joel Vaske

North Iowa Area’s- Cole Hupke, Robert Hogan, and Thomas Gross

Northeast’s (NE)- Alex Potter, Houston Fogelstrom,. And Jeremy Schneider

Bay College’s- Tanner Halvorson

Des Moines Area’s-Carter Boernemeir, Ray Ray Douglas, and Ben Nippolt 

Iowa Central’s- Devon Schewe, Devin Hurdle, and Mat Dreher

Bismark State’s- Brayden Koenig

Div 2- Mid Atlantic District Preview (Reg. 19 & 20)

Baseball in the Northeast is something that for many people outside of that region of the country gets overlooked. But if you are from that region or know anything about it you know that is something that is a very thriving thing.

This district has only been to the National Championship 1 time in the past 10 years and that was Mercer in 2017 where they finished 2nd losing to Kankakee. Other then that Mercer has gone two other times in that span (2016 and 2014), Lackawanna has gone 3 times(2019, 2013, and 2012), while CCBC Essex (2018), Frederick (2015), and Cecil (2011) have all gone just one time over the last 10 years. 

Tallent as we said is plentiful if you care to look and find it in the northeast. This district is lead by:

Lackwanna’s-Jake Kelchner, George Castro, and Kyle Scott

Morris’s-Sam Armstrong

Delaware Tech's-Jonathan Goleblowski

Mercer’s-Greg Delgado, NIck McAuliffe, and Jarrett May

Anne Arundel’s-Leonard Lehner, and Elijah Santana
