This is going to be an exciting sectional. Hope every team is at their best and no injuries. Should be fun.

Made it down to see the Athens vs Gallia game last night. Neither team threw a typical rotation arm, but from what I saw, Athens should win easily if Gallia makes it to the May 11th game. From what I watched last night, I have no idea how Gallia has a winning record. Only thing I can guess is that OVC must be a pretty weak league. Didn't Gallia win their conference? (and they're a 7 seed in this sectional...)

Athens won't have to worry about throwing their 1 or 2 in the May 11th game if they didn't need to.

With not many games next week & a break before districts, my guess is everyone will throw their 1 just to get em work in.

Good point, in that case, if it is a Athens vs Gallia match-up...Athens will roll into districts on cruise control.

Athens will probably throw Sano against Gallia but Rodgers is really good too

Nice seeding to allow Athens to get winner of Gallia/VC instead of Meigs/VC. How did Gallia get the #7 over Meigs which got the #8. Does anyone look at heads-up records or "good wins/bad losses" or just vote straight # of losses?

Sano started for Athens last night and went three innings on a cool night on The Plains.

Struck out 7 of the first 9 batters he faced.

On the season: 5IP 0ER 13K's

This is one of the best Athens teams I have seen in recent years. I don't think they are on the the level of the teams that had the Hewitt brothers, but they are pretty good. Good luck Dogs

This Athens team has far better pitching. Probably the best Athens team since the 80's, back when Athens and Marietta had some dominant teams. Sano is the best pitcher in our area and also bats close to .600 :shock:

There have been a few great teams since the 80's

Stricklin & Decaminada's team was 1990.

Gibby's last year with Chris Ford & Kyle Dean were as good as this years team, imo. Tough luck kept them out of the regionals.

None of the teams will ever compare to the 1990 group Raider.

Senior league world series champions at age 15
American legion state champions at 18

Corey Corrigan (class of '89 - but was young enough to play with the class of 90 in summer ball) - Ohio University pitcher
Scott DeCaminada - 1990 - Ohio University pitcher
Kevin Scurlock - 1990 - played small college ball pitcher
Izzy Olvera - 1991 - pitched Athens into the regionals - small college pitcher
Scott Stricklin - 1990 - MAC freshman of the year at Kent State.
Brock Toadvine - 1990 - Ohio University left field

Pitched against Scurlock and Izzy....they were great. Izzy fanned 15 in Jackson I believe (he didn't get me 😀)....but in the 7th inning down 2-1 Stricklin gave me my only caught stealing of my lifetime. Threw me out from his knees....and had 3 of Athens 5 hits off of me. He owned me. I think he was 6/6 off me in our career matchups.

Izzy had wicked stuff. Hard to believe he was the No. 4 pitcher on any team. lol

But in 1990, that's exactly what he was on the team that won the state championship in American legion. And if I'm not mistaking, Portsmouth was one of the better teams in the state tourney that year as well. Along with Newark.

State championship in legion might not sound impressive to the young generation - but prior to the 2000's - EVERYONE played legion ball.

They lost in the District Semi's to a team that didn't advance to the Regionals. The Unioto team that won the District that year was a 5th place team in the SVC lol.

i was on the Portsmouth post 23 legion team that year also. We finished 3rd. Lost to Newark 1-0 in 14 innings and Athens I think it was 3-2. I may have the scores backwards. But they were both 1 run games.

I remember watching them play - that was a special group. If Gregory and the one Hewitt hadn't chosen to play D1 football, I think they could have definitely been college baseball players

Is there anyway we can maybe make a New Topic about Old Athens versus New Athens, so this can be talk about DII Sectional - South?

Yeah it does when I see that people is posting and I get anxious that someone might have posted about the tournament that the topic is about instead of back and forth about who was better...

Hahahaha I was thinking the same thing, but refrained from posting. I'll explain to raider how good Corey was when I see him.

But I will say, Sano is pretty darn good. His deuce is as good as I've seen. Corrigan on the other hand had the best change up I've ever seen at the high school level. Neither of the two threw as hard as Scott D. Had he not got injured, his college career would been on par with Corey's, imo.

Quick Post:

I played for Meigs H.S. and Legion from 1989-1991. In high school, 1990, Athens showed up to play on a very cold and windy day, Flakes were flying. Scott D. was the pitcher and I remember watching him throw in mid to upper 80's. Needless to say I think he threw a 1 hitter and nobody wanted to hit! When someone made contact it rattled the bats so much people didn't even want to get in the box!!
That group of players at Athens were very good. Always beat us in H.S. but we had some great games with them in Legion!!

Athens host Gallia Academy tomorrow night. After seeing these two play last week, I think it is an easy pick on the outcome of this one. Athens will cruise through this one. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets lopsided early.
