Fear 'Les' Diamond Rankings

CORBIN — Fear ‘Les’ Softball Diamond Rankings

No. 1 North Laurel (10-5 overall, 5-0 against 13th Region competition) — The Lady Jaguars looked like they were beginning to put some big wins together after defeating South Laurel, but losses to both Woodford County and Shelby County, a team the Lady Cardinals have beaten, slowed down things a bit for Kyle Mink’s squad.

No. 2 South Laurel (16-2, 6-1) — The Lady Cardinals have recovered nicely after a loss to North Laurel by defeating Johnson Central, South Oldham and Whitley County.

No. 3 Corbin (5-11, 4-1) — The Lady Redhounds turned in two of their better efforts during their stay in Florida, and don’t be surprised to see them start putting things together now.

No. 4 Middlesboro (7-2, 7-1) — The Lady Yellow Jackets survived a scare against Harlan, but remain a dangerous team.

No. 5 Clay County (7-2, 5-2) — I’ve said this once, and I’ll say it again, the Lady Tigers need to play a tougher schedule.

No. 6 Harlan County (8-4, 5-1) — Eighth-grader Destinee Jenkins has the Lady Black Bears rolling right now.

No. 7 Pineville (4-3, 3-3) — The Lady Mountain Lions are quietly putting together a nice season.

No. 8 Jackson County (3-8, 2-4) — The Lady Generals are a hard team to gauge.

No. 9 Barbourville (2-6, 2-4) — Welcome to the top 10 Barbourville. Brandon Simpson’s squad looks like they’re beginning to hit stride.

No. 10 Knox Central (4-11, 4-7) — The Lady Panthers have really been inconsistent this season.

Fear ‘Les’ Baseball Diamond Rankings

No. 1 South Laurel (12-2, 6-0) — The Cardinals suffered their first in-state loss this past week, but remain unbeaten against 13th Region teams, and defeated defending 13th Region champion North Laurel this past week.

No. 2 North Laurel (11-6, 5-2) — Even though the Jaguars lost to South Laurel, North Laurel has shown it has a solid chance to repeat as 13th Region champions.

No. 3 Harlan County (11-5, 6-2) — Connor Leisge makes the Black Bears a very dangerous team.

No. 4 Whitley County (11-5, 4-1) — The Colonels hung tough with South Laurel before losing, 4-1, but keep an eye on this team, they are good.

No. 5 Corbin (4-7, 3-2) — The Redhounds’ record isn’t the greatest right now, but this team is very good and will be ready once post-season begins.

No. 6 Clay County (7-11, 4-4) — The Tigers took some lumps early, but look to be playing some of  their best baseball right now.

No. 7 Bell County (10-6, 6-6) — The Bobcats are the most-improved team in the 13th Region.

No. 8 Knox Central (7-8, 3-4) — The Panthers have been very inconsistent. They are talented, but just can’t seem to get on a roll.

No. 9 Harlan (8-7, 3-5) — The Green Dragons are another team that has improved from last season.

No. 10 Barbourville (3-4, 2-4) — The Tigers picked up a big win over Jackson County this past week.
