Default Paintsville 15th Region Favorite?
I believe the Tigers are the top team in the 15th region. I know they lost Moore, and Smurf, but the 3 transfers when they become eligible will cement this team as the top team. They still have a solid team with Williams leading them, but I believe these three transfers helps the Tigers Repeat. The Eagles lost Kelly, Meade, Gamble, and May. That is a lot of talent to replace. Lawrence lost their Stud shortstop Peyton Cyrus 15th Region POY, also Parks and the older Fairchild who were Studs too. But LC has plenty of pitching returning but can they score enough runs? These top 3 teams are going to be fun to watch this year.

Will the 3 new ones run any of the others off. Since they will be losing starting positions?

High school sports is about competition. A coach plays his best 9. No one wants to run anyone off, competition is a very important part of life. I remember in T ball everyone gets trophies, but this is high school level, time to go work.

Really they are not really new, just coming back..They had already been there for many years and would have been in the mix to begin with.

I agree with the competition statement, but in life the loser of the competition for a position usually moves on to find an open spot. High School is no different when playing time is cut the player on bench often moves on to find place he/she can play. So it would not surprise me to see a player or two leave. However, winning can tend to soothe and calm things, and Paintsville should be primed to win

I know Paintsville is the defending champions and they have a lot back and a lot transferred in, but I would not be comfortable if I were them at that top spot. Lawrence County has a few pitchers that can shut down anyone in the region, and one of them happens to be a Blevins I think. It wouldn’t surprise me to see Paintsville repeat, but it also wouldn’t surprise me to see Lawrence County run the table in the 15th region and then go win the sectional too.

That's certainly what you call having a pedigree.

Key word in that sentence is “last year.”
