Previous No. 1 and nationally ranked Westview (OR) took their first loss of the season to then No. 9 Lake Oswego (OR), causing the Wildcats to slip to No. 3 this week. Lake Oswego was unable to build on the momentum of their positive start to the season, going 1-2 at the Coach Bob National Invitational, though they did compete with teams from states to the south and passed the eye test, thus remaining in the top 15, coming in at No. 13.

Washington has seen a huge shakeup, as several top teams have stumbled out of the gate and perennial powers who were expected to be down this year have asserted their usual dominance. 5-0 Lake Stevens (WA) makes a big jump into the top 5, up from 18, while two previously unranked teams vault into the top ten with No. 7 Newport (WA) ad No. 10 Edmonds-Woodway (WA).

Other new additions this week: No. 17 Rocky Mountain (ID) and No. 23 Puyallup (WA).

Mater Dei has bounced back from a fairly recent skid and flexed their offensive muscle at the National High School Invitational, beating the No. 1 and No. 2 ranked teams in the nation by a combined score of 23-3 to jump to the top spot in the region. The Monarchs advanced to the semifinals, while fellow SoCal power Harvard-Westlake moves into the other semi after a couple impressive wins of their own, allowing the Wolverines to move up to No. 2. The other California representative in the field, Orange Lutheran made a strong statement as well, knocking off a top ten team (Columbus, GA) 1-0 in the opener before losing a close one in the quarterfinals, their performance vaults them into the top 10.

Meanwhile most of the action in California has gone as expected with most of the top teams winning the games they should, limiting most of the movement to the teams catapulting up the rankings with their strong performances in North Carolina. Previous No. 1 Lakewood continued its winning ways back on the west coast, though they slip to No. 3 for now.

New additions this week include: No. 21 Redlands and No. 22 Gardena Serra.

It was a rough week for the Southwest Region. National No. 1 Bishop Gorman (NV) has lost two straight games…to nationally ranked teams at the National High School Invitational. Previously No. 2 ranked Spanish Fork (UT) dropped their first game of the season, to No. 6 Bingham (UT), leaving both teams with one loss a piece. Previous No. 3 Hamilton (AZ) had a slow week after winning the Big League Dugout Invitational last week.

Bingham jumps from No. 6 up to No. 2 after the win over Spanish Fork. Mesquite (AZ) moves into the top 10 after a big week that included a win over previous No. 3 Hamilton, sliding up to No. 9. Boulder Creek (AZ) has gotten back on track at the Coach Bob National Invitational, going 8-1 this week, and will play for the championship this afternoon.

In the race to remain the last undefeated standing, No. 2 Calallen (TX) outlasted No. 1 Corpus Christi Carroll (TX). The Tigers finally lost, to nationally ranked Mater Dei (CA) at the National High School Invitational on Thursday, one day after knocking off nationally ranked Gulliver Prep (FL). The quality of the win and the caliber of opponent that dropped the Tigers to 16-1 is high enough that they hang onto the top spot in spite of Calallen improving to 20-0.

No. 3 Klein Collins (TX) suffered a huge loss this week in spite of going 2-0, as superstar SS CJ Hinojosa suffered a non-throwing shoulder injury that is expected to sideline him for a while. Though the Tigers have continued to play well without him, winning their past four games without him in the lineup by a combined score of 44-10. Hinojosa is batting .476/.569/.643 and will be a huge loss if he is not back in time for the playoffs. The Tigers have won 16 straight games and sit at 17-2 on the season.

New additions this week include: No. 22 Bishop Kelley (OK), No. 23 Langham Creek (TX) and No. 24 Deer Park (TX).
