The talk of Jackson Parish is the incredible start to the season by the Weston High baseball team. The Wolves have gotten noticed statewide as well as verified by their #1 ranking in both the LHSAA and GeauxPreps.com latest Class B power point polls.
The Wolves not only top the Class B polls, they lead it by a wide margin of more than two points and well they should. Weston has not only won every game they have played so far this season but have won by more than 10 runs in every game and by 15 or more in all but two.
The team’s stat line is almost unbelievable.
Weston has outscored their opponents by an incredible 106-1 margin. Making it even more impressive is that this has been done against teams from higher classifications in 6 of the 7 games. Defensively the pitching staff has allowed only four hits all season. This includes four no-hitters two one hitters and a two hitter. Offensively the 15-man roster is batting .424. The teams on base percentage stands at .591 almost half of their hits on the season have been for extra bases. That computes to a 1.364 OPS (on base plus slugging percentage).
Two of the three other teams in District 2B, Quitman and defending Class B state champion, Choudrant, have also gotten off to solid starts and are highly ranked as well. The Wolverines (6-2) are currently at #3 in the state while Choudrant (9-2), is one spot behind at #4. At #18, Simsboro (4-4) is the lowest ranked team from what is easily the toughest Class B district in the state.
On the flip side the 1-2A baseball and softball districts are by far the worst in the state according to conglomerate rankings. In baseball the best team in 1-2A, Lakeside, is only at #30 while in softball the best rankings a team from 1-2A has, D’Arbonne Woods, is #21 and has a win-loss record of 5-28 among the four teams.
