They're 23-12 overall and 14-4 in Zone play with a two-game lead over Tyler (12-6) and a four-game lead over Northeast (10-8) with a dozen games left.

Tyler (27-9) is ranked 14th in the NJCAA national poll. Navarro is 2-0 against Tyler this season. The Bulldogs play a North Zone doubleheader at Panola Wednesday and a solo game against the Ponies at home on Saturday.
