There is no changes in the Senior teams form last year. There will be 13 teams. Junior program seems to still remain strong. There is a total of 24 teams. A couple of changes, it appears that a single Junior Rowan team is no more. There will be a Carson, East Rowan, West Rowan and a combined N. Rowan/ Salisbury team. Another change is longtime team Wilkes has dropped but West Stokes has taken it's place. Also Cary has petitioned the state to join Area III and has been granted that request. The pitching limit rule is being discussed at the national level and should have a definitive answer on what is going to be used later this week. The discussion is leaning toward a rule not quite as strict. Anyone have anything else, feel free to add.
