Moore schools dominate top of the class 6A slow pitch rankings



But when they took on the Jags, Moore was unable to muster any type of offense. The Jags had the same affect o the SaberCats.

“The key was base hits, good defense and pitching,” Schwarz said. “Sounds like a cliché, but that’s what we did. We just gave up one run there and held Southmoore to five. If you had told me before the tournament that we could do that, I’d say your lying. But we’ve been improving every week.”

Westmoore’s victory at the Classic moved them up from No. 5 to No. 2 in the latest Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association slow pitch rankings. Despite losing to the Jags (14-2), Southmoore (16-1) jumped to No. 1 and Moore (13-3) stayed put at No. 4.

All three area teams are back in action this week. Southmoore faced Cache and Moore Monday and Tuesday. They will travel to Norman today. The Lions and Jaguars are both head to the Muskogee tournament this weekend, but will not have to face each other until April 15.

But for now, being able to beat the lions for the tourney title gives the Jags bragging rights.

“It makes it even more special,” Ramirez said. “It makes it awesome. Every time we go out there we want to beat Moore as best as we can. This game we struggled a little bit. The girls are tired. But there is no reason we shouldn’t come out and play like we did. I think we did a good job and stayed on top.”
