With the high school baseball season underway, here is a look at the top teams in each UIL district.
In District 14-6A, Cypress Ranch is the favorite after winning the district title last year. The Mustangs are off to a hot start this season, with a 9-1 record. They are led by senior pitcher Zachary Humphreys, who has committed to play at TCU.
Another team to watch in 14-6A is Jersey Village. The Falcons have a young but talented team, led by sophomore pitcher Sean Watson and freshman infielder/outfielder Luke Bowman. Jersey Village is off to a 7-3 start this season.
District 13-5A is wide open, with no clear favorite. Pflugerville Connally is off to a good start this season, with an 8-2 record.
