FARMINGTON — The Navajo Prep Eagles have rejoined the top-10 in the final New Mexico Overtime Sports Center 3A baseball poll of the season
Prep jumped up to No. 9 in the latest poll. Its bats caught fire last week, scoring 84 combined runs in its last four District 1-3A games.
The Eagles (15-4, 7-1) will return to the diamond at 3 p.m. Thursday at Zuni.
Prep clinches the district title outright with a sweep and if Laguna Acoma (12-10, 7-1) splits its doubleheader Thursday at Tohatchi, or with a split and if Laguna Acoma loses twice.
If Prep and Tohatchi both record sweeps on Thursday, Prep owns the tiebreaker because of a plus-two advantage in head-to-head point differentials.
