1) Dixie ~ 17-2 / 5-1 The Flyers reeled off a 4-0 record to win the Red Rock Classic as the host school, two weeks ago. The 4 wins came over American Fork and Pleasant Grove in front of sold out crowds at Flyer Field and then 2 more victories over Taylorsville and Timpanogos. The Flyers are riding a 13 game winning streak and look as strong as ever. The blessing that any Region 9 school has, is when they have 3 reliable starters, and only play 2 league games a week vs the 3 that northern Utah schools do. It provides a weapon out of the pen in close games, or was the case last week, when Coach Danny Ipson went with his 1st two starters in a piggy back situation in game one. Then threw his 3rd starter Logan Leavitt in game 2. Last week defeated Pine View 5-3 and 8-2. The Flyers are much like Snow Canyon and Mountain Ridge in next level talent, with C-Ridge Erickson (BYU) the top defensive catcher in the state in the last 8 years. SS-Boston Vest (New Mexico State), 3B-Logan Leavitt (Glendale CC), 1B/RHP-Cooper Bartholomew (CSI), LHP-Braxton Yates (CSI) and RHP-Jake Andreas (offer on the table to a nationally ranked JC)

2) Snow Canyon ~ 14-3 / 6-0 lead Region 9 by one full game over #1 ranked Dixie  and they will finish the season with a head on collision with the Flyers in the last week of play. The Warriors are loaded with next level talent with RHP-Talan Kelly (Utah Tech) and touched 94 vs Lone Peak. SS-Crew Secrist (CSI), transfer RHP-Darius Henderson who at some point will make his debut up to 94, while nursing tenderness in his right arm. RHP/OF-Makaio Swensen (Salt Lake CC) hitting .491 with a 88-91 mph FB. OF-Ryder Harrison (Salt Lake CC), RHP-Jackson Kirby (Glendale CC), RHP-Kyson Goates (Lassen CC) and RHP-Andrew Lyon and his mid to upper 80’s FB. The deepest pitching staff in the state along with Mountain Ridge!
