We are reaching the home stretch, more or less, as teams look towards their respective playoffs and the bids for Grand Junction and Enid (amongst others) are up for grabs. Another great week of JUCO baseball gives us some movement, though not a ton, and the upper crust continues to establish themselves. 

Walters State lost their second game of the season last week but won five others, giving them a 42-2 record overall and retention of the No. 1 spot overall. Wabash Valley turned in an undefeated week to run their record to 34-2, holding down the No. 2 spot for another week. Crowder is 38-4, riding a 30-game winning streak and playing about as well as anyone in the country. LSU-Eunice held serve at No. 4 again this week, as Jeff Willis' club moved to 39-4. Johnson County climbs another spot this week to No. 5, their highest rank of the season as they turned yet another undefeated week into a 33-1 overall record. 

There is some movement in the second half of the top-10, including Central Arizona jumping up two spots to No. 6 following their tumble from No. 1 last week. Eastern Oklahoma State had a .500 week and as such fell a couple spots, but it's hard to be upset at a 37-3 overall record. Cowley jumped a pair of spots to No. 8 overall on the strength of another big week and a 28-6 overall record. Florence-Darlington is having one of their best seasons ever statistically, and at 35-5 they find themselves in the top-10 for the first time all season, checking in at No. 9. San Jac falls a couple spots to No. 10 this week, losing a game to both McLennan and Blinn in the past week. 

Elsewhere in the Top 25, Lansing continues their climb and sits at No. 11 with a record of 22-1. Northwest Florida State really put themselves into good state tourney position by beating Chipola twice last weekend, they move up to No. 15 overall and have the pieces to make a run. Florida SouthWestern has been in and out of the rankings seemingly all season due to some wild inconsistencies week-to-week, they are back in this week at No. 25 on the strength of a 4-0 week that pushed them to 37-13 overall.
