Baseball

It was the same old, same old for the 18-0 Fyffe Red Devils in this week’s Alabama Sports Writers Association state high school baseball rankings, as there was no movement among the top four teams in Class 3A.

Meanwhile, Ider advanced to the No. 9 ranking in 2A, rounding out DeKalb County’s representation in the latest state rankings, as Geraldine (12-12) received nominations in Class 3A.

Fyffe remained behind only T.R. Miller (21-1) and Piedmont (22-4) atop the 3A list. Phil Campbell remained fourth in the classification. 

In their latest win, the Red Devils beat Collinsville 5-2 on Monday.

Ider (19-8) took a 7-4 loss at Sand Rock on Monday. The Hornets moved up one position in the 2A rankings after consuming the No. 9 spot last week.
