POWERADE Arizona Baseball Rankings: Week 9

By Christopher Parish

After games ending Saturday, May 5

At around this time next week, we'll have a state champion. With state tournaments in their final games this week and weekend, several teams are just a few wins away from bringing home some hardware, while others are simply hoping to stay alive and keep moving on. Our new No. 1 is Sunnyslope, a team just two wins away from a state championship but facing a very difficult semifinal game against Saguaro, which has moved up to No. 4 and is playing its base baseball at the right time. But there's still a lot to be settled in the coming days, so check back next week.

1. Sunnyslope (26-4-1) Last week: No. 3

2. Brophy Prep (23-7) Last week: No. 4

3. Chaparral (25-7) Last week: No. 6
