By Paul Adkins - [email protected]



The Chapmanville Regional High School baseball team moved up to No. 1 in the state in this week’s Class AA baseball poll.

The Tigers are 10-1 and are tied for first with defending state champion Bridgeport.

The Indians are just 0-1 on the season.

Both teams received two first-place votes in the poll which was conducted by the media.

Chapmanville lost to Bridgeport in last year’s Class AA state championship game at Appalachian Power Park in Charleston.

The Tigers were slated to play at Herbert Hoover on Tuesday.

CRHS goes to Man on Wednesday in a 7 p.m. makeup game and then heads to Tolsia on Thursday for a 6 p.m. ballgame at Tolsia High School’s new baseball park at Glenhayes.

Jefferson (10-2) is No. 1 in this week’s Class AAA poll. Wahama (7-1) is ranked No. 1 this week in the Single-A poll.
