My high school alma mater, Knoxville’s Farragut, is off to another great start to their baseball season. They’re currently ranked sixth in the country by MaxPreps. They’re going after their fifth straight state championships, and eighth of the last 10 years. Go Admirals! (BTW, I think we’re something like 12-0 now….)
6. Farragut Knoxville, Tenn., 5-0
The Admirals opened the season last week with five straight wins, including a pair of shutouts. Farragut clobbered Lenoir City 19-0 in the opener and then edged Heritage 5-2. It followed with an 8-0 win over Soddy Daisy, a 7-4 win over Father Ryan and a 7-4 win over Station Camp at the Scenic City Classic. Cameron Strickland, Nick Senzel and David Logan all hit home runs against Lenoir City. A.J. Simcox added a homer against Heritage. Simcox also went 4-for-4 against Father Ryan.
