Where we stand - Class 3A Softball - April 22

Batten down the hatches, the final couple of weeks of the Class 3A softball season in the Scott Community Region could get a little turbulent.

Like their baseball brethren, though, Scott City has emerged as the head of the class and the region favorite to make a run at a state title.

beyond the top, there's a group of six teams in the nine-team region near .500 or better, and with a couple of weeks left to sort things out, or make them more of a mess, who knows how things will shake out in the pecking order.

But it starts with the leaders. Scott City (9-1) split with Colby (5-5), but has otherwise dominated the region. The only other games outside of the Eagles's 6-3 win on April 13 that was close was a 4-3 win for the Beavers over Holcomb (5-3) on April 6 in the finale of a doubleheader, and a wild 17-16 nightcap with Lakin six days later.

Between the Beavers and Longhorns in the standings sits Cimarron (6-2), who gets to play at Scott City on April 30. The Bluejays opened with four straight wins, before getting swept by Holcomb. Cimarron, who bounced back with a pair of run-rule wins over Southwestern Heights, will see Colby on Tuesday before their showdown with the Beavers.

Hugoton (6-4), Colby, Sublette-Haskell County (5-5) and Lakin (5-7) are also in that middle of the pack group who all have a chance to jockey for position.

Both Goodland (2-6) and Southwestern Heights (2-10) have struggled this season, but have also had their share of highlights. The Cowgirls swept a pair from Hugoton on April 6, while the Mustangs have an extra-innings win over Sublette-Haskell County as well as a victory over Stanton County on their ledger.
