High School Top 25: April 27

The latest rankings yield another new No. 1 as Clovis West High of Fresno, Calif. takes over the top spot in the Baseball America/National High School Baseball Coaches Association Top 25 poll. Menchville High of
Newport News, Va. lost its first game of the season, but bounced back the next day against Hampton’s Kecoughtan High and 2011 lefthander Jake Cave to settle in at No. 4.

Sarasota (Fla.) High’s run at a perfect season came to an end and the Sailors lost three out of four in the last two weeks, but they’ll stay in the hunt for a national title with Florida’s postseason starting this week. Six teams dropped out of this week’s poll and Heath High of Rockwall, Texas made the biggest jump entering at No. 18 after being unranked.

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. Records indicated are as of April 25  and do not include ties.
