High School Top 25: April 10





The latest Baseball America/National High School Baseball Coaches Association Top 25 has a new No. 1 and a lot of changes after several ranked teams faced off in the USA Baseball National High School Invitational. Tampa's Jesuit High jumped four spots to No. 1 after Carroll High (Corpus Christi, Texas) and Bishop Gorman High (Las Vegas) lost at the NHSI and Utah's Spanish Fork High as well as Klein-Collins High (Spring, Texas) dropped games in the last two weeks.

The NHSI champion, Mater Dei High (Santa Ana, Calif.), made the biggest jump. The Monarchs climbed 13 spots to No. 5 despite splitting a doubleheader upon their return to Southern California.

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 8 and do not include ties.
