Baseball and Softball Season Over

This was a fun high school season to cover. Here are some comments/questions to contemplate in the future?

1. Will EG's Jake Rodriguez go pro or go to Oregon State Univ.?
2. Will Pleasant Grove baseball eventually get its own Section title to go alongside softball's?
3. Is there another up and coming star softball pitcher once Shelby Wisdom and Ally Carda graduate in 2011?
4. What can Wisdom and Carda do as an encore?
5. The same EGSUD teams that were on top in baseball will repeat in 2011.
6. Jesuit will win the football title this fall. (I know that's the wrong sport but I just thought about this now).
7. I have a feeling J.D. Davis will choose to play football for Elk Grove, but only as a placekicker/punter, to try to avoid injury so that he'll shine again next spring in baseball.
8. The new Delta River League, adding Oak Ridge and Ponderosa and casting aside Florin (to the Metro League) and Monterey Trail (to the Delta Valley Conference) will become the most competitive league in baseball, softball and football (and probably all sports).
9. Jesuit will likely win the basketball title, too , next year even with Sheldon's blue chippers becoming seniors.
10. With Valley moving to the Metro Conference, the Vikings will win a baseball game.
