Austin Bowie played for the state championship game in 2017. Lead by Auburn signee Abbey Smith, the Bowie Bulldogs are playing solid softball after a slow start to the season. Los Fresnos knocked off SATX No. 1 Warren in the second round of the playoffs and have been rolling this season. This match-up will be a hard fought showdown.

CLASS 5A Region IV

Georgetown knocked off New Braunfels Canyon after losing the first game in that series. Georgetown finished second in their district behind, No. 1 in the country, Leander. This team is talented and confident in themselves. Victoria West is having a great season as well and has gone undefeated in the postseason.

PREDICTION: Victoria West Advances
Leander vs CC Carroll
At Somerset (Thursday 6:00pm)
At Somerset (Friday 6:00pm)
At Somerset (Saturday 1:00pm) *if necessary
This could easily be 6A Region IV Final. Both these teams finished first in their respective districts. Leander was the No. 1 team in the entire country this season so they enter as the favorite, but lost their first game of the season last round again Medina Valley. However, that could take off the pressure of an undefeated season. CC Carroll will be stiff competition since they have won 30 games and have cruised through the postseason. This a battle of two heavyweights.

PREDICTION: Leander Advances
Each week VYPE's own Joshua Waclawczyk and Scott Terrell sit down and take a look at the teams from each area and rank them based on their super-secret formula. Rankings of the top Baseball and Softball programs in the area are then broken up into 5A-6A, 1A-4A, and Private Schools. Will you agree with our rankings? Most assuredly not. After all, these are just our opinions and we are sure there are much smarter people out there that may have better opinions/rankings. So if you have your own thoughts on these rankings let us know on Twitter (@vypesatx) and Instagram (@vypesatx).
This week's rankings are the final rankings of the regular season (We may do an end-of-season rankings once the Championships happen). Take a look below!
Reagan ends where they started, #1. Canyon, Smithson Valley, Johnson, and Churchill round out the Top 5. The bottom five sees some adjustments though none drop out because of losses.
The top three stay the same even with Pleasanton's split games with Hondo. Their five-hour game with Hondo (with rain delay and lights going out) gave them the #1 seed in district. Hondo moves into the rankings with their impressive play in District as well.
No movement in the Private rankings where Cornerstone and Central Catholic separated themselves as the season went all.
