In a matter of hours, the top of the 5A-Southeast Conference baseball standings totally changed.

White Hall suffered a rare doubleheader sweep at home at the hands of Sylvan Hills on Thursday, losing 1-0 and 5-3 and falling out of first place in the conference. Meanwhile, Watson Chapel won both games at Monticello, 7-1 and 7-0, to tie Sylvan Hills for first place.

It all comes down to Tuesday’s conference finales in determining the champion.

Watson Chapel (22-6, 11-1) can earn the No. 1 seed in the 5A state tournament by sweeping White Hall (14-8, 10-2). The two teams shared the conference title last year, but Watson Chapel earned the top seed. If Chapel loses, Sylvan Hills can win the title outright with a sweep at Monticello.
