Pacific high school girls softball ratings, pre-Far East edition
Published: May 15, 2012
One change at the top; Nos. 1 and 2 flip-flopped with each other. But that doesn't change the fact that Okinawa brings yet another strong entry to Far East in Division I next week. Install E.J. King as the favorite in Division II, but look out, for a Cougar (Osan American) just might be gaining on you:
1, Kubasaki, Okinawa. Champions at last, the Dragons won the best-of-three Okinawa Activities Council championship series over Kadena.
2, Kadena, Okinawa. May 12 is going to resonate in the Panthers' minds for the next nine days.
3, Nile C. Kinnick, Japan. Red Devils got better and better with every passing week; they're the best bet to give Okinawa a run for its money, if the pitching is there.
4, E.J. King, Japan. The D-II final against Osan American, which scored a rate two-game DODDS Korea sweep over the weekend, should be classic.
5, Seoul American. That 9-3 loss on Saturday at Osan could be the slap across the face with a wet squirrel the Falcons needed.
