High School Top 25

Just as Bellaire (Texas) High was lying in wait for Bishop Gorman High (Las Vegas) to misstep, the Tigers of Tampa’s Jesuit High pounced after Bellaire lost to Houston’s Westside High 5-2. Jesuit is the new No. 1 in the Baseball America/National High School Baseball Coaches Association Top 25. Read more about the Tigers in the latest Around The Nation.

Roswell (Ga.) High fell the furthest as the Hornets dropped out of the poll after being No. 12 two weeks ago. The Admirals of Farragut High in Knoxville remained ranked, but dropped from No. 5 to 16 after being handed a couple of losses in their own SportsBelle Classic. Lakeland (Fla.) High makes the biggest jump to No. 11. The Dreadnaughts have taken down Florida powers Sarasota High and Dunedin as well as Owasso (Okla.) High who was No. 10 at the time before dropping to 12.

The staffs of Baseball America and the NHSBCA compile the Top 25 rankings. In-season polls will be conducted every two weeks and released every other Tuesday throughout the season. The final poll will be released June 9 and will expand to 50 teams. Records indicated are as of April 12 and do not include ties.
