Preseason Softball Poll: East Texas Owns 3A’s Top Three Spots

The Texas Girls Coaches Association released the 2013 preseason softball polls Thursday, and East Texas owned the top of the Class 3A rankings.

Jasper starts the season at No. 1, followed by defending state champion Lufkin Hudson at No. 2 and 2012 state runner-up Henderson at No. 3.

In Class 2A, East Texas had four teams ranked in the top 10.

Sort of.

Mineola is ranked No. 4 in the 2A poll despite its move up to Class 3A during realignment last February. The Lady Jackets are followed by No. 5 Linden-Kildare, No. 7 Tatum, and No. 9 Central Heights.

Beckville and Harleton represented the region in Class A at fifth and seventh, respectively.
