(#1 Shawnee Senior players)

(5-1-17) Shawnee continues to hold the #1 spot in the SSN National Public High School Baseball rankings. The Wolves finished the regular season at 34-0 and have a firm grip on the top spot.

Several changes from #2 on down, moving up to #2 from #4 is North Gwinnett, having one of the best seasons in school history.  #3 sees Huntington Beach jump three spots from #6. Spring Hill and Clovis Buchanan both drop from #2 and #3 to #4 and #5 respectively.

Dropping out of the rankings completely was last week’s #5 Colleyville Heritage, they lost two out of three to Grapevine in the 5A region  seeding play-offs.

Mother Nature had a hand in #10’s Massillon Jackson first loss of the season, Jackson ranked No. 1 in Ohio’s Division I coaches poll, had runners on second and third with no outs in the bottom of the sixth against Tallmadge when the game was called  and Jackson down 7-4. Because five innings had been finished, the game was considered a complete game.  Jackson hadn’t lost a regular season game since the 2015 season,  a streak of 43 wins in a row.
