By By Brandon Parker

After games on Saturday, May 5

Just a few days remain in the regular season, and for now Francis Howell Central appears on its way to entering the Class 4 playoffs as the top squad. The Spartans went 3-0 last week, beating Francis Howell North and capitalizing on Blue Springs' upset of previous No. 1 Liberty.

Here are this week's rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):

1. Francis Howell Central (St. Charles) 19-4 (2)
Spartans went 3-0 last week, including a 10-3 win against Francis Howell North. They will close out the regular season Wednesday against Hazelwood West.

2. Liberty 19-3 (1)
Bluejays fell to Blue Springs but bounced back with victories against Park Hill and Raymore-Peculiar. Last two contests of regular season include a Tuesday tilt against Staley.

3. Vianney (Kirkwood) 20-5 (3)
Golden Griffins have won four straight and could make it seven should they win their final three regular season games this week.
