Div. 1- South West District Preview (Reg. 5)

This District is one that has a rich history of postseason success. Between the years of 1999-2009, there were 6 National Titles and 7 National Title games. One of those being the best record arguably ever recorded by a college baseball team in 2009 when Howard went 63-1 and a National record 56-game Win streak. Since 2009 there have been 6 different schools that have made the trip. Only 1 has gone back to back years winning the Region 5 title (Midland ‘13-’14). There also have been only 1 National Title game since the ‘09 season when McLennan was the National Runner up in 2015. 

Last year's winner was New Mexico claiming its first region crown since 2007. The Thunderbirds, unfortunately, went 1-2 BBQ losing to Chattahoochee Valley and Monroe in the first two days of the tournament. 

Previous Winners: ‘19 New Mexico, ‘18 Temple, ‘17 McLennan, ‘16 Cisco, ‘15 McLennan (National-Runner Up), ‘14 Midland, ‘13 Midland, ‘12 Cisco, ‘11 Grayson, ‘10 Temple, ‘09 Howard (National Champs, 63-1 Record), ‘08 Grayson (National Champs), ‘07 New Mexico (National Runner Up), ‘06 Temple, ‘05 New Mexico (National Champs), ‘04 Grayson, ‘03 Grayson, ‘01 North Central Texas (National Champs), ‘00 Grayson (National Champs) ‘99 Grayson (National Champs). 

This year's crop of players coming could be argued to be one of the best in recent years. McLennan's Jalen Battles (Arkansas) and Connor Phillips take home both the Pre-Season Player (Battles) and Pitcher (Phillips).

Div. 3- South District Preview (Reg. 2, 5, & 14)

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. 

Previous Winners: ‘19 Brookhaven, ‘18 Tyler (National Runner-Up), ‘17 Tyler (National Champs), ‘16 Tyler (National Champs), ‘15 Tyler (National Champs), ‘14 Tyler (National Champs) 

The Pre-Season Player of the Year goes to Ronnie Bailey Jr of Coastal Bend, While the Pre-Season Pitcher of the Year goes to Tylers Cooper Rawls.
