Fear ‘Les’ 13th Region Diamond Rankings

CORBIN —

Girls Top 5

1. North Laurel Lady Jaguars (4-5)

What’s the scoop: The Lady Jaguars have played some tough teams, thus their slow start.

Surprise, surprise: North Laurel has allowed 29 runs so far this season. The Lady Jaguars didn’t allow their 29th run last season until their 17th game.

2. South Laurel Lady Cardinals (5-3)

What’s the scoop: The Lady Cardinals are another team that has played some tough competition. James Burns’ squad has been tested a lot the past couple of games.

Surprise, surprise: After starting the season red-hot at the plate, the Lady Cardinal bats cooled down before scoring nine runs during Wednesday’s win in South Carolina.

The best of the rest ...

3. Corbin Lady Redhounds (6-2)

What’s the scoop: Who has the best record in the 13th Region? Corbin. The Lady Redhounds are 3-0 during their stay in the Sunshine State and they hope to cap things off the next two days with games against Tates Creek and Owensboro.

4. Middlesboro Lady Yellow Jackets (3-1)

What’s the scoop: After starting the season with an 18-0 loss to South Laurel, the Lady Yellow Jackets have settled down to win three games in a row.

5. Whitley County Lady Colonels (3-5)

What’s the scoop: The Lady Colonels are playing pretty good softball right now. They are the third team in the 50th District to be ranked in the Fear ‘Les’ Rankings.

Boys Top 5

1. South Laurel Cardinals (7-2)

What’s the scoop: South Laurel does have a loss to regional foe Clay County, but the Cardinals are playing pretty good baseball at the present time.

Surprise, surprise: I’ve always said one of South Laurel’s main strengths is its pitching, but during its loss to Summerville, S.C., the Cardinals allowed 14 runs, one more than they had allowed the entire season.

2. Harlan County Black Bears (10-3)

What’s the scoop: The Black Bears continue to feast of 13th Region foes by compiling an early 4-1 mark against them. This is a team to keep an eye  on.

Surprise, surprise: Harlan County was riding an impressive seven-game win streak before losing to Hazard, 3-0, this past Tuesday. During the streak, the Black Bears recorded wins over Clay County, Knox Central and North Laurel.

The best of the rest ...

3. Clay County Tigers (8-4)

What’s the scoop: The Tigers have surprised many people so far this season while becoming the only regional team to beat defending 13th Region champion South Laurel so far.

4. North Laurel Jaguars (5-5)

What’s the scoop: The Jaguars are young and talented. They will be a dangerous team to play by the time post-season comes around.

5. (tie) Williamsburg Yellow Jackets (9-1)

What’s the scoop: The Yellow Jackets suffered their first loss this season this past week, a 14-3 decision to Jackson County. Williamsburg beat the Generals a couple of weeks ago, 10-2.

5. (tie) Corbin Redhounds (6-3)

What’s the scoop: Rob Ledington is doing a fantastic job with the Redhounds so far this season. Corbin has turned in some solid showings during its stay in South Carolina.
