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- 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

Div. 2- Plains District Preview (Reg. 2, 6, 16)

The last Division 2 National Champion came out of this district in the way of NOC-Enid. They won it in their Second Consecutive trip to well Enid…. Yes they host the division in the World Series. In 2019, they topped Mesa (AZ) in a close 5-4 winner take all game due to the fact that both teams had one loss going into the Championship Game. The year before ,in 2018, they lost both games to eventual National Champion LSU-Eunice. 

This Distract this past decade has been led by the Oklahoma Schools. With as mentioned above NOC-Enid having those 2 trips as well as one in 2014, and a National Title, Murray State (2017,2013 (National Champs), and Western Oklahoma State (2016, 2015 (National Runner Up), 2012(National Runner Up), 2011 (National Champs), and 2010.) The last time a school from any other region in this district made it to the World Series  was in 2008 before they combined the regions to create this district. 

As usual there is a ton of talent on the field:

North Central Missouri- Braedyn Brewer

Carl Albert- Mac Moody, and Devon Chapa

Murray State’s-Joey Trevinoi and Cameron Pool

NOC-Tonkawa- Blake Hubbard, Jacob Ellis, and Carter Hines

Div. 2- Central District Preview (Reg. 24)

This District has been dominated the past few years by the combination of Parkland and Lincoln Land. Both have 3 Trips to Enid in the last 6 years; with Parkland making it to the National Championship in 2018 but came up short in a walk-off win by LSU-Eunice. 

At this point I feel like it is getting repetitive but talent is overflowing in this district just like almost every other one. Its lead by:

Heartland’s-Luke Patzner and Tyler Brandenburg

Parkland’s- Rigel Verciglieo, Trevor Burkhart, and Charlie Hodges

Illinois Centrals-Brady Brecklin, and JD Deany

Spoon Rivers- Colin Fenill, and Ben Fricke
