Toby Bicknell

TEXAS, USA - The High School Baseball season is in full swing in Texas with the end of tournament season, and the start of district play. Remaining in the Number 1 spot for the fifth straight week is Lake Travis. The Cavaliers are now 19-0, 8-0 in district after winning three district games, one over Westlake and two over Lehman.

Updated 4/2/18

Prev Rank Team Class  Record
1 1 Lake Travis 6A 16-0
3 2 Southlake Carroll 6A 16-3
4 3 Sweeny 4A 18-1
2 4 Reagan 6A 18-4
6 5 Coppell 6A 18-3-1

There are some noticeable changes to the rankings with a newcomer to the top five.

The Top 5

+ Southlake Carroll: The Dragons remain at No. 2 after going 2-1 with two district wins to remain undefeated in district, but dropped a non-district game to Keller on Saturday 12-6.

+ Sweeny: The Bulldogs resume speaks for itself, they are the highest ranked non-6A school in our rankings for a reason. They went 1-0 last week and have outscored their last four opponents 39-3.

+ San Antonio Reagan: The Rattlers went 2-0 last week, with wins over Madison and Roosevelt.

+ Coppell: The Cowboys move into the top five for the first time this year, but they are no stranger to the Power 25. They have been included for the past four weeks in the “One The Rise” and they keep climbing.


ON THE RISE

+ Argyle: The Eagles are now 19-0 after going 3-0 last week. The offense is athletic and can put up a lot of runs. They have outscored opponents 48-1 the past five games.

+ McAllen: Move to 19-1-1 Overall and are 4-0 in District.

+ Ridge Point: At 17-5, and going 2-0 last week, they are 5-1 in District and have a staff that could help them to a district championship.
 

+ Kingwood: They are young, but they keep scoring runs as they move to 5-1 in District after going 2-0 last week.

+ Boerne Champion: The Chargers enter the ranking for the first time this week and probably later than they should have at 19-3 overall.


ON THE BUBBLE

Now that the a number of teams are over half-way through with their district schedule, the overall rankings are starting to take shape. So, teams that play in tougher districts have a better chance of moving up, should they win. However, it is getting to the point where a 1-1 week won’t cut it. As some of the top teams are rolling through their conference. A number of factors come into play, most importantly, strength of schedule, district and non-district.

+ Godley: We keep listing this club here at 15-0 and they have an argument for being in the ranking. If they keep winning, they should get in.

+ Klein Collins went 2-0  last week, defeating Spring Woods twice. But we will keep a close eye on these guys because of the high end talent on the mound, and on the infield.

+ Katy Tompkins: They play in a tough league and are now 5-1 in District after defeating the Katy Tigers this week.

+ Midlothian Heritage: The Jaguars are now 13-3 after winning 13 of 14 since starting 0-2 this season.
 

+ El Paso Americas: At 18-4 they have as strong an argument as anyone for being included. They are now 5-0 in District with Wins over Socorro, Frenship, Odessa Permian, and Midland Lee.

+ The same can be said for Kerrville Tivy at 18-4 with a 6-1 District record.
 

+ Round Rock: The Dragons fell out of the ranking after dropping a series to Cedar Ridge, but with a strong finish to the second half of the season, they could edge back into the ranking.
 

+ Cypress Fair: Don’t look now, but the Bobcats are 14-8 after going 2-0 to move first place in their district with a 7-1 record.
