Austin Wheeler

Denton pitcher Austin Wheeler (14) pitches the ball toward home plate during the game against Ryan on Friday, March 15 at Denton High School.

Denton continued its strong start under first-year coach Toby Rumfield last week as the Broncos swept Justin Northwest to improve to 4-0 in District 8-5A, joining Aubrey as the only area baseball teams to remain unbeaten in district play.

The Chaparrals are 2-0 in District 11-4A while District 8-4A, which features area teams Argyle and Krum, will begin district competition this week.

The Eagles, who improved to 18-1-1 on the season with a pair of wins against Richland and Crandall, again were ranked No. 1 in the Texas High School Baseball Class 4A poll released Monday morning. Argyle has won six straight games since losing March 8 to Southlake Carroll, and the Eagles will host No. 7 Decatur in their district opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Liberty Christian, the No. 4 private school team in the latest rankings, was the only other Denton-area school to crack the top 25. The Warriors held on to the No. 4 spot after defeating Texas Homeschool Educators Sports Association and Fort Worth Nolan Catholic in convincing fashion. Liberty Christian next will take on Plano John Paul II at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
