National High School Top 50: May 22
 | Preseason National High School Top 50

The Perfect Game High School Top 50 has come to a close with this final edition of the 2018 rankings. For the final time this season, there is a new No. 1  team as Argyle (Texas) wrapped up their undefeated season that culminated in a state championship. Former No. 1 Calvary Christian (Fla.) had been in the top three since the preseason and was No. 1 for seven straight weeks before falling in the state championship game to No. 5 Calvary Christian Academy (Fla.). It is still worth noting that Calvary Christian had won 60 straight games going into the state championship. 

Parkview (Ga.) comes in at No. 2 following their state championship in the highest classification in the state of Georgia, dispatching No. 40 Mill Creek in a two-game sweep. The Panthers were a very talented squad as PG had eyes on their team during the PG High School Showdown earlier this spring. Faith Academy (Ala.) comes in at No. 3, while Riverdale Baptist (Md.) and the aforementioned Calvary Christian Academy round out the top five. John Curtis Christian (La.) comes in at No. 6 following their state championship, and also impressed at the NHSI, while Vianney (Mo.), St. Xavier (Ky.), Valley Christian Schools (Calif.) and New Hanover (N.C.) complete the top ten teams in the country. 

Orange Lutheran (Calif.) comes in at No. 11 as the highest-ranked team without having won a state championship. The Lancers had one of the tougher schedules in the country as they played in the NHSI and Boras Classic South in addition to regularly playing teams in the loaded Southern California Trinity League. Southlake Carroll (Texas) is the highest ranked new entry to the Top 50 as they come in at No. 13 on the heels of a state championship in 6A, the highest classification in the state of Texas.
