The 2019-2020 school year is upon us and so are Fall Sports. Here are the conference standings for Football, Softball, Boys Soccer, and Volleyball. Cross Country and Golf do not have regular season standings but will have a conference meet later in the season.
We are two weeks into the Football season but as of yet there have been no conference games played. Southern Boone, Blair Oaks, and Boonville are the only Tri-County teams who are still undefeated at 2-0 and ranked in the Class 3 Top 10 (Blair Oaks is #1, Southern Boone is #6, and Boonville is at #9). This coming week will open up conference play this week. Blair Oaks vs Boonville will be the big match up of the week. Southern Boone will host Versailles.
In Softball, Southern Boone has come out hot going 7-0 to start the season. The Lady Eagles won the Hallsville Invitational, defeating Westran 9-1 in the 1st round, defeating Harrisburg 8-1 in the Semi-Finals, and then pulling out a big win over Salisbury in the Championship 2-1. Southern Boone has won their first two conference games with big wins over Eldon (13-7) and Boonville (10-0). The Lady Eagles have also won two big extra-inning games already this season. In the season opener, the Lady Eagles beat the always tough Fatima Lady Comets 2-1 in 13 innings. Then, last night, Southern Boone defeated the very tough Father Tolton 4-1 in 11 innings. The Lady Eagles were the first team to get a hit or score against the Lady Trailblazers. Southern Boone will contend with a tough California (6-0) team and the always tough Blair Oaks (2-0) team this year for the Conference title. It should be a good season for softball in the Tri-County this year.
In Boys Soccer, Southern Boone has already claimed the Conference Title. The Eagles defeated Osage 8-0 in their 2nd game of the season and then beat Boonville 5-0 last week. With those being the only 3 teams in the Tri-County Conference with Soccer, Southern Boone was crowned the Champion. Southern Boone is looking further into their season as they have aspirations for the Final Four and a State Championship.
Tri-County Conference Volleyball has started strong. Blair Oaks, California, Hallsville, and Southern Boone have all started the season on winning notes. Blair Oaks, California, and Southern Boone are 1-0 in conference early in the year, with all of them winning their matches in straight sets. A lot of the conference will be participating in the Fulton Tournament. The conference has several good teams this year so it should be a lot of good battles.
