With the 2017 high school baseball season getting underway this week in what should be another fantastic season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every 2A team in the state with information on what to expect this season. The region rankings are based on coaches' preseason projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team. There are six new head softball coaches in 2A this year: Dallin Clove (Beaver), Chasity McKinnon (Altamont), Christine Dotson (Milford), Briand Wade (Millard), Ron Campbell (St. Joseph) and Whitney Haimin (Summit). Here's a region-by-region look at all 24 teams in 2A.
