The UIL baseball tournament begins this week as the month-long "Race to Round Rock" commences for some of the area's legit contenders.

The history of Houston-area baseball is rich with tradition as the Bayou City is home to several state champs.

So, who reaches state?

Here are VYPE's Top 5 to be playing June.

No.1 The Woodlands (Class 6A, Region II) – It would be SHOCKING if the Highlanders didn't reach state. Coach Ron Eastman has seen it all over his tenure in the dugout. His squad is loaded with no weakness – great pitching, good fielding, hot hitting. TWHS reached state last season but fell in the semis. Honestly, if The Woodlands don't make it, it would send shock waves throughout the state baseball landscape.

No. 2 Cy Ranch (Class 6A, Region II) – The Mustangs have two of the livest arms in the nation in Matt Thompson and JJ Goss, who will get drafted early in the MLB June Draft. But do they have the hitting? Hard to say. Yes, they would face The Woodlands in the Regional Finals

AUSTIN – Dalton Holland didn't know if he'd be able to get back to state in 2019.

At the beginning of the season, the Barbers Hill senior sprained his ankle badly, which forced him to be in a boot for two to three weeks and miss the first half of the track season.

"I had some doubts, I didn't think I'd be able to come back," Holland said.

Battling his way back through the therapy, Holland was able to qualify for state for a second-straight year and on Friday the senior left it all on the track.

Holland posted a time of 14.19 to claim the silver in the Class 5A 110-meter hurdles.

"Makes it a lot sweeter victory," Holland said about coming back to get the win.

In 2018, Holland came to state for the first time and ended up finishing fifth overall, fueling him to come back better this season.

"Last year I was pretty nervous coming in my first year," Holland said. "This year, I was more calm and under control. I knew what was coming."
