The Mayfield Trojans have a legitimate shot at challenging for a state baseball championship in 2011.
The Trojans have an above-average pitching staff, which is a requirement when challenging for a state title.
And the team's defense is very solid, particularly in the outfield.
The biggest surprise has been Mayfield's lineup, which has produced offensively while displaying a nice mix of speed and power.
The Trojans are the best team in District 3-5A this season and will play Las Cruces High this Tuesday night at Apodaca Park.
The state appears to be wide open this year as well.
The Trojans should win District 3-5A and will be in hunt for the state championship this year once the tournament rolls around.
