East Rutherford (7-1, 4-1) continues to get better and swept all three games they had last week. Kaleb Greene had four RBI in the win over Shelby as East allowed just two runs last week. Both of those were to Shelby.

R-S Central (5-2, 4-1) won both games they had this past week. Of course, they have three games this week and host East Rutherford (3/24) at the end of it. They won't play again until after Easter break on April 5th. Both East Rutherford and R-S Central were in a three-way tie atop the SMAC standings coming into the week.

Chase (4-3, 3-2) is hanging around in the top half of the SMAC, losing their only conference game of the week to R-S Central. They beat North Henderson and lost to East Gaston. They will host East Burke (3/24) and go to Chesnee (3/28). Chase was tied for fourth in the SMAC coming into the week.
