Softball super seven
1. River Ridge (8-0):
Ernie Beck’s Royal Knights have outscored opponents 105-11, and ace Makenzie Goluba has only allowed one earned run. Competition in PHU’s tournament this weekend will be fierce and show how strong River Ridge is.

2. Gulf (9-0): The Buccaneers have been almost as dominant as the Knights, with an undefeated start and beating opponents by a combined score of 78-7. Junior Madison Morlan is making a strong case as Pasco County’s top pitcher (48 innings, 46 strikeouts, two earned runs).

3. Mitchell (6-2): No shame in the Mustangs’ two losses — to River Ridge and East Lake — especially considering Mitchell’s quality wins against Hudson and Zephyrhills. Cassidy Neptune (12 RBIs, .538 average) is off to a blazing start.

4. Hernando (6-2): Convincing victories over Springstead and Nature Coast leave no doubt that Courtney Riddle and the Leopards are the cream of Hernando County. But it won’t be easy to crack into the playoffs in Class 5A, District 7.

5. Zephyrhills (7-3): The Bulldogs look like the No. 2 team in a district (5A-8) that’s up for grabs. Keep an eye on sophomore Lindsey Hupp, who’s already knocked in 13 runs.

6. Wiregrass Ranch (6-4): The Bulls are a 5-0 against North Suncoast teams — and winless against Hillsborough County district foes.

7. Springstead (5-3): The Eagles aren’t as dominant as last year, but, as this week’s 7-5 win over Central shows, they can still get the job done.
