The high school baseball regular season heads into the home stretch with district titles still to be decided in the large-school classifications.
This is the first season for 6A-5A schools to compete in district groupings to determine postseason seeding. The top two finishers in each district get to host regional tournaments.
Jenks visits Bixby in Monday non-district action, but the Trojans will be watching with interest from afar as Sand Springs visits Mustang to begin a two-game series that should help untangle the District 6A-4 standings.
Jenks, Sand Springs and Mustang are tied at 7-1. Sand Springs hosts the Broncos in the return game at 6 p.m. Tuesday, and Mustang and Jenks play Friday in Mustang and at 1 p.m. Saturday in Jenks.
