High School Top 25: May 13

American Heritage High (Plantation, Fla.) held on to the top spot, but Sarasota (Fla.) High and Moody High (Corpus Christi, Texas) took the biggest falls from No. 2 and 5 respectively after they were bounced from the postseason without making it out of the regional tournaments. Sunrise Mountain High (Peoria, Ariz.) fell to Horizon High (Scottsdale, Ariz.) in the state championship, bumping them from No. 9 to 16. Barbe High (Lake Charles, La.) returns to the top 25 after winning the Louisiana 5-A state tournament.

The staff of Baseball America and the National High School Baseball Coaches Association Ranking Committee compiles the top 25 rankings. In-season polls are conducted bi-weekly and released every Tuesday. The final poll will be released June 23. Records included are as of Sunday, May 11 and do not reflect ties.
