After games ending Saturday, April 14
There's been no shortage of offense so far in the Colorado baseball season, and some of the state's hottest hitters are moving up in the POWERADE Colorado Weekly Rankings. Cherry Creek, our No. 1 squad, plated 40 runs last week in its three victories. Another team off to a hot start, Grandview, scored 38 over its last three games. Wheat Ridge added 44 on the week, and Faith Christian scored 26...in one game. These numbers are fun to look at now, but when the playoffs come around, it'll be the pitching that will likely stand tall. Of course, some of these teams have that going for them, too.
1. Cherry Creek (9-1) Last week: 1
2. Dakota Ridge (8-2) Last week: 3
3. Cheyenne Mountain (9-3) Last week: 4
