It's time to bring something old/new to the Austin area; rankings! Each week VYPE's own Joshua Waclawczyk and Scott Terrell will bring you their rankings of the top Baseball and Softball programs in the area 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 rankings. So if you have your own thoughts on these rankings let us know on Twitter (@vypeatx) and Instagram (@vype_atx)
With all that said, here are this weeks rankings!
VYPE AUSTIN 5A-6A TOP 10
Lake Travis takes the top spot in this weeks rankings with an impressive 16-2-2 record with wins over 5 of the other teams in this ranking. We wouldn't be surprised if they are a main stay at the to of these ranking the rest of this season. Cedar Park does have a good shot at claiming that Number 1 spot though with a win over Lake Travis, especially with Lake Travis entering district play in what could be a very tough 26-6A district this year.
VYPE AUSTIN 1A-4A TOP 10
2 years removed from their Runner-Up finish to Wall, Blanco seems to be picking things up were they left off after last seasons early end. Also we know what you're thinking "Aren't some of these San Antonio teams." And after much discussion we decided to put them in the Austin market as they were just as close to Austin as San Antonio. One of our teams to keep an eye on this early into the season, Cameron Yoe.
VYPE AUSTIN PRIVAE SCHOOL TOP 5
"I thought you said this was a Top 10?" Yes but we make the rules. One of the interesting things about ranking private schools especially before district play is you'll see a lot of games between public school opponents so it can be kind of hard to rank in that regard. With that being said we feel St. Michaels has showed the most promise to start the season. Does that mean they'll stay there by the end of the year? We don't know. But we do think this Top 5 will change by the end of the season.
