National High School Top 50: March 13

For the first time this season, there is a new No. 1 team in the land. Calvary Christian Academy (Fla.) upset former No. 1 American Heritage (Fla.) over the weekend by a score of 5-1 and starter Christian Scott spun a masterful performance. The Florida signee has run his fastball into the mid-90s attracting significant draft buzz while also hitting .400 for the team. The Calvary-Heritage rivalry is an extremely entertaining one, and Head coach Alan Kunkel has a very talented team from top to bottom. 

Another Calvary Christian-named high school in Florida holds strong at the No. 2 spot after beginning the season 12-0 and extending their very impressive winning streak to 42 games, dating back to last year's state champion team. Bishop Gorman (Nev.) also holds steady at No. 3 after a 6-0 start to the season and an absurd run differential of 74-5. Blessed Trinity (Ga.) jumps to the No. 4 spot as they came off their victory at the PG HS Showdown by winning a big game over No. 18 River Ridge (Ga.) in extra innings. 

Four Texas teams represent the top 20 teams as Cypress Ranch and San Antonio Reagan hold strong at Nos. 6 and 7 respectively. Lake Travis' run up the rankings continue as their 14-0 start has them looking like favorites for a state title and Magnolia also jumps to No. 17. 

Some of the bigger jumps in the rankings come from Providence (Fla.) who is up nine spots to No. 21, Agryle (Texas) is up 12 spots to No. 25, Elk Grove (Calif.) is up 16 spots to No. 27, and Notre Dame (Calif.) makes the biggest climb as they jump 18 spots to No. 32. Seven new teams enter the rankings which include Sam Houston (La.) at No. 30, Puyallup (Wash.) at No. 36, Niceville (Fla.) at No. 37, John Curtis Christian (La.) at No. 38, Valley Christian Schools (Calif.) at No. 45, Faith Academy (Ala.) at No. 49 and Saline (Mich.) at No. 50. Most regions have gotten underway with the Southwest and Northwest starting up this past week and the Midwest and Northeast regions should be getting underway over the next two weeks.
