Great Plains

Maize's 5-4 loss at Hutchinson (KS) ended the Eagles' rediculous winning streak, that had dated back to 2010. Their loss combined with a shakeup in Missouri and the consistent play of Cherry Creek (CO) propelled to Bruins to the top spot this week.

St. Louis Uni (MO) continued to climb this week, moving up a couple more spots to land at No. 3 after a 10-1 start to the season.

No. 12 Pine Creek (CO) continues a steady climb with a six game win streak since a 2-2 spring break trip to the Coach Bob National Invitational where they dropped a couple of close games against quality competition, the Eagles look to be the clear favorites to come out of Colorado Springs in 5A.

No. 24 Shawnee Mission East (KS) enters the rankings this week.

The top remained stable as the top four teams went undefeated this week and are now a combined 40-3 on the season. Kentwood (WA) continues to maintain its stranglehold on the top spot, being lead by standout 2013 C Reese McGuire.

Defending champion Westview (OR) maintains the top spot in Oregon, but No. 5 Portland Jesuit is charging hard at 10-1 and is just one spot back at No. 6.

Pacific

El Dorado had opened the year with lofty expectations and a lofty Pacific Regional ranking (No. 10), but after a disappoint start to the early part of the season the Golden Hawks had slipped all the way out of the rankings for a time. But they return to where they started after an impressive run at the 2012 Hard 9 National Classic where ace left hander Kyle Twomey broke out and they found a new arm they can rely on in big situations as 2013 RHP Joe Record made his season debut on the mound in the semis, before just missing a no-hitter in the championship.

National Classic runner-up El Toro moves up a couple of spots into the top five after a very strong showing of their own. Mountain View St. Francis' first loss of the season dropped them a couple of spots (down to No. 6) but they maintain a slim edge over No. 7 Campolindo for the top spot for a team outside of SoCal.

With the strong performances by most of the teams near the top who took care of business there wasn't much room for new entrants, but San Diego Madison played their way in at No. 25.

Southeast

Parkview and Columbus remain in the top two spots again this week as both teams have dominated their region schedule. Pelham (AL), Woodward Academy (GA), and Oak Grove (MS) round out the top five.

Three new teams make this week’s ranks, No. 23 Milton (GA), No. 24 Mount Juliet (TN), and No. 25 El Dorado (AR).

Southwest

Bishop Gorman (NV) has proven to be the only reliable team in the region this year, and thus they have held onto the top spot from the preseason on to this point. After that things were far less stable this week.

Brophy Prep (AZ) moves up a couple of spots to No. 2 after a 2-0 week that included a win over powerhouse Hamilton (AZ). Bingham (UT) saw their winning streak snapped by Riverton (UT), while Spanish Fork (UT) went 2-2 at the National Classic, landing them at Nos. 3 and 4 respectively. Desert Mountain (AZ) rounds out the top five after a big week.

New additions this week include: No. 16 Sandia (NM), No. 23 Sunrise Mountain (AZ) and No. 25 Las Vegas Centennial (NV).

Texahoma

The top two spots continue to be held by south Texas powers Corpus Christ Carroll and Calallen, as neither has lost a game within the lone start state.

They are followed by Klein Collins (TX) and Tomball (TX) who have a huge matchup this evening. St. Pius X (TX) has begun to seperate themselves as the clearcut favorite in TAPPS 5A, and have climbed all the way up to No. 9 and appear to be on the verge of breaking into the National Top 50 if they can continue their recent success.

Edmond Santa Fe (OK) returns to the Texahoma Top 25 in the final spot, having recovered from a recent skid. The Wolves spent much of the early part of the season in the National Top 50 before a stretch where they lost five of seven. On talent alone the Wolves would rank in the top 10 and have won three straight and seven of eight.
