Preseason High School Top 50

With the newest iteration of the Perfect Game High School Top 50, you can see a couple of teams have made very strong early season impressions. Blessed Trinity takes a state-best 12-1 record into region play after downing Providence (Fla.) to capture the championship of the Red bracket at the PG HS Showdown, and, consequentially, become the No. 1 team in the state of Georgia after downing Parkview (Ga.) in the semifinals. It is clear that Blessed Trinity was underrated coming into the season, coming in at No. 15 in the Preseason Southeast Top 15 after graduating their entire starting rotation, however, they showed that they are still one of the most talented teams in the country following this weekend's performance. 

Lake Travis (Texas) is the second-highest entry team as they enter the Top 50 at No. 17 in the rankings. The Cavaliers are 15-0 to open the season and enter the rankings as one of the highest ranked undefeated teams in the country. Providence enters the rankings after an exceptionally strong showing in the PG HS Showdown and are placed at No. 30. El Toro (Calif.), Argyle (Texas), Gulfport (Miss.), and Notre Dame (Calif.) are the other teams that entered the rankings as they come in at Nos. 36, 37, 47 and 50, respectively. 

American Heritage (Fla.) holds onto the top spot as they have started undefeated on the season and feature an absurd run differential of 93 runs scored to only five runs allowed. Calvary Christian Academy (Fla.), Servite (Calif.), Harvard-Westlake (Calif.) and Hoover (Ala.) are teams to make solid jumps following hot starts to the season. It is still very young on the year, as the midwest and northeast regions should be starting play somewhere around this week or next and region/conference/district play is just opening up in the southeast and Florida regions. There will be a lot of movement in the rankings to come over the next few weeks and Perfect Game will be keeping a close eye on all the action.
