Fear 'Les' Diamond Rankings

CORBIN — Fear ‘Les’ Softball Diamond Rankings

1. North Laurel (13-7, 5-0) — The Lady Jaguars continue to show they’re going to be tough to beat.

2. South Laurel (21-2, 8-1) — The defending 13th Region champions seem to be peaking at the right time.

3. Corbin (8-14, 6-2) — The Lady Redhounds are another team that looks to be peaking at the right time, too. Players such as Megan Greene and Harleigh Grubb have given Corbin a lift this past week with the glove, bat and pitching.

4. Clay County (10-3, 5-2) — It looks like the Lady Tigers are coming on strong.

5. Harlan County (10-4, 6-1) — This is a team to keep an eye out on.

6. Harlan (5-7, 3-5) — The Lady Green Dragons’ record might not show it, but they are improved.

7. Middlesboro (10-4, 8-3) — The Lady Yellow Jackets dropped games to both Harlan County and Harlan this week.

8. Pineville (8-4, 5-4) — The Lady Mountain Lions are quietly putting together a solid season.

9. Jackson County (7-8, 5-3) — The Lady Generals are a hard team to figure out.

10. Knox Central (5-17, 5-10) — The Lady Panthers move back in to my top 10.

Fear ‘Les’ Baseball Diamond Rankings

1. North Laurel (13-7, 6-2) — The defending 13th Region champions move into the top spot after turning in some solid efforts this past week. North Laurel might possess the best pitching staff in the region.

2. Corbin (10-8, 8-2) — The Redhounds surprised many, including myself, by knocking off former No. 1 ranked South Laurel in consecutive games.

3. Harlan County (14-8, 8-3) — The Black Bears are a team that could very well wind up winning the region.

4. South Laurel (14-5, 8-3) — The Cardinals are struggling at the plate, which has led to a three-game losing skid.

5. Whitley County (14-6, 6-2) — The Colonels have a big 50th District match-up with Corbin coming up.

6. Clay County (9-12, 4-4) — The Tigers are heating up at the right time.

7. Middlesboro (13-10, 8-5) — The Yellow Jackets might be ranked seventh, but they are very good.

8. Bell County (10-9, 6-9) — The Bobcats have been hard to figure out.

9. Harlan (12-9, 4-7) — The Green Dragons have surprised this season.

10. Jackson County (7-9, 4-5) — The Generals manage to hold on to the No. 10 spot.

  • Shelton was a hero by any definition

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
