Russell: From the Bullpen (Oct. 8) - J Scott Russell - Times News Record
The first edition of the Super Region Four rankings had its share of surprises when it was released Monday, starting with the first two teams on the list.

(Mr. Russell is mistaken on earned access for any team from the Great Northwest Athletic Conference. The GNAC does not have enough teams for earned access to apply.)
