PBR Louisiana Power 25 Rankings: Week 4 Update

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director


The Louisiana high school baseball season kicked off on February 20, opening day for regular season action under LHSAA regulations. Leading up to opening day, we published our team previews ahead of the 2023 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, counting down through the official PBR Louisiana Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Since Opening Day, our scouts have been out and about covering the 2023 season and have been publishing scout blogs and additional in-season content along the way, like Power 25 updates, Player of the Week awards, and more.

Follow along throughout the spring season by following us on Twitter @PBR_Louisiana.


The Top 5

Our Top 5 remains unchanged for the first time this season.  Barbe and Sam Houston faced off this past week in back to back district games.  On Thursday, the Bucs took Game 1 by a score of 3-1 and they nearly took Game 2 on Saturday.  Barbe was leading by one run going into the 7th innings, before Sam Houston came storming back to take a 4-2 lead to give the Bucs their first loss of the season.  Catholic (BR) had an undefeated 5-0 week, with close one-run games against Central Lafourche and Destrehan.  West Monroe went 3-1 on the week, as the Rebels dropped a district game to Pineville on Thursday.  Sulphur also went 3-1 on the week.  The Tors dropped a game to St. Thomas More last Monday, before winning three straight district games.  



+ Parkway moves into the Top 10 for the first time this season, after a 4-0 record last week, outscoring their opponents 49-9.


+ Pineville has been a steady riser this season.  The Rebels went 1-1 last week in two district matchups against West Monroe, where they won the first game 7-4 and nearly won the second game, before losing 8-6.


+ St. Charles has wont their last 7 games, moving their overall record to 12-4-1 on the season.  The Comets had big wins last week over Lutcher and Dutchtown.


+ St. Louis has been arguably the hottest team in the state over the last couple of weeks.  The Saints have won their last 7 games by sweeping both Benton and St. Thomas More in three game series.
