Today begins the 2018-19 high school baseball season! Four 2A schools (Alto, Cushing, Douglass, Groveton) and three 1A schools (Apple Springs, Kennard, Wells) come together to comprise District 22. The 2A schools will play each other three times in district play and the 1A schools one time. Douglass (28-7 | 11-1 Regional Finalist in 2018) is the pre-season #2 team in the state while Cushing (12-10-1 | 7-5 Area Finalist) also gets a mention. Groveton (14-10 | 9-3 Regional Quarterfinalist) is just two years removed from playing in the state tournament while Alto returns six starters from a 2
No better way to get this season started than against the neighbors from down the road. Groveton’s strength seems to be their size along the OL/DL and Lovelady’s strength seems to be at the skill positions. There doesn’t seem to be any love lost between these two rivals so I expect it to be an all out war. I like our chances as I see us spreading them out and being a mismatch for them in the open field. Should be a good one. Let’s hear some thoughts from the smoaky experts!
So, if Lovelady wins they win district, if groveton wins AND Centerville loses, they'd win district (the win would be the tiebreaker, right?) But if groveton wins AND centerville wins, that'd make all 3 teams each have 1 loss. So how'd they break the tie?
