Three of the area high school baseball teams are included among the state ranked teams in this week's Texas High School Baseball Coaches polls.
In Class 4A, Bullard (15-6) is ranked No. 3, while the Eagles of Rusk (14-4) checked in at No. 8.
In Class 2A, Alto (14-4) is ranked No. 23.
Bullard is 7-0 in District 16-4A and the Panthers lead second-place Spring Hill by two games.
The Panthers will be at home tonight to take on Chapel Hill at 6:30 p.m.
Rusk is 2-0 in conference play and will face Carthage twice this week, in a series that should go a long way in determining the District 17-4A champion later this spring.
At 7 p.m. this evening the Eagles will visit Carthage, with the Bulldogs scheduled to travel to the Eagles at the same time on Friday.
Alto is sitting atop the District 22-2A standings, with a 5-0 conference worksheet. The Yellowjackets of head coach Chris Moore have a one-game lead over Douglass.
The Jackets will entertain Kennard tonight, as district play continues.
