BASEBALL SUPER 7

Records through Wednesday.

1. River Ridge (15-4, 11-2): We're not sure the Royal Knights have ever graced the top spot in a Super 7, but they are deserving. Not only have they won five straight and 10 of 11, the Royal Knights also boast the area's top hitter and pitcher in Jason Heinrich.

2. Hernando (18-3, 12-0): The Leopards are 18-0 when they score more than one run. If the bats can match the arms in the postseason, you have to like their chances.

3. Wiregrass Ranch (14-5, 5-3): Playing for the No. 1 seed in 7A-8, the Bulls lost to Gaither for the second time. That makes a mess out of the district, where four teams finished 5-3. Anyone have a coin?

4. Land O'Lakes (12-7, 8-5): Since Tommy Guglielmello joined the rotation, he is 3-0 with six hits allowed and 19 strikeouts in 16 innings - and a 0.00 ERA. Oh, and the Gators are 6-2 and have surged back into the 5A-8 picture.

5. Bishop McLaughlin (13-7, 5-3): The Hurricanes peaking? They have scored in double figures four straight games for the first time since 2011, clinching the No. 2 seed in the district in the process.

6. Wesley Chapel (14-6, 8-4): The Wildcats' seven-game win streak ended against Mitchell. But despite being outscored 74-71 in district games, Wesley Chapel has a firm hold on the No. 2 seed.

7. Vacant: Considering Central (13-8), Pasco (13-8), Sunlake (12-7) and Mitchell (12-8) are indistinguishable - and you could throw Fivay (11-9) in there as well - we're abstaining from picking a No. 7. So forget district seeding, folks. This last week is for the final spot in next week's final Super 7. Does it get any bigger?
