The top four spots remained unchanged, with the top three remaining the same as they have all season with Edison, St. Francis and Bishop Amat all continuing to flex their muscle. Valencia climbed to #4 last week and continued to play well with a pair of impressive wins at the USA Classic tournament in Memphis to extend their winning streak to six. The Vikings will be tested this afternoon against a very strong Christian Brothers (TN) squad.
Mater Dei dropped a game to West Ranch in the Anaheim Lions tournament, the lone blemish on an otherwise impressive 4-1 week to remain in the top five. Lions tourney champ and Trinity League rival JSerra comes in at #6 after winning their seventh straight in dramatic fashion.
Palm Desert enters the top 10 after going 4-0 on the week and are now 11-3 on the season. #15 Helix and #20 St. Louis (HI) remained undefeated and moved up this week. They are joined by newcomer, #25 Baldwin (HI) as the lone unbeatens remaining in the Pacific top 25.
Five of the top seven teams in last week’s Top 25 lost during the week, but the top of the rankings remain mostly unchanged. Baton Rouge Catholic (LA) maintains the top spot, while previous #2 Farragut takes a two-spot fall after dropping their third game of the year. Madison Central (MS) is #2 despite losing their first game of the year to NW Rankin (MS). Their record now stands at 16-1. Marist (GA) is #3 with a 14-2 record, losing their first in-state game Monday to Mill Creek.
Christian Brothers (TN) makes a six spot jump to #8, and 23-1 Notre Dame (LA) makes a seven spot change, up to #14. New additions on the week are #21 Huntsville (AL), #24 Mundy’s Mill (GA), and undefeated Memphis University (TN) at #25.
Owasso and Broken Arrow continue to leave a trail of destruction in their paths, and with one week remaining before their much anticipated matchup it seems unlikely that either team will be bringing two losses into that clash of the titans.
Fort Bend Clements remained #3 after a couple of blowout wins this week. Their third victory over rival Dulles this season was far less dramatic than the first two, which both ended via walk-off home runs. This time the Rangers made things less interesting, cruising to an 8-2 victory.
The Woodlands and Brenham come in at #4 and #5 respectively. Dallas Jesuit entered the top ten this week, coming in at #9 following a 3-0 week to extend their current winning streak to eleven games. El Paso Franklin has a big winning streak of their own going, currently sitting at seventeen games, be sure to catch coverage of their game on Tuesday as part of the PG High School Road Trip.
Charlotte’s Ardrey Kell (NC) leads the first edition of the Mid-Atlantic Top 25 Regional Rankings, holding a 14-1 record on the year. One loss teams St. James (SC) and Pinecrest (NC) sit at 2 and 3 with undefeated James River, the highest ranked team in the state of Virginia at #4.
North Carolina is the most represented state, holding nine of the spots. South Carolina checks in with six teams, Virginia with five, and Maryland has three, led by #14 C. Milton Wright. West Virginia places unbeaten Martinsburg at #24, Delaware has #25 Middletown.
