After games on Saturday, April 21
Entering this season, most eyes were on George Washington because of their powerful tandem in Nelson Rodriguez and Fernelys Sanchez, and Poly Prep because of junior ace pitcher Andrew Zapata. But the Trojans have struggled due to Sanchez being sidelined by injury and inconsistent pitching, while the Blue Devils have been inconsistent in producing offense at the plate.
As a result, teams like Grand Street Campus (led by do-everything player Alex Cuas) have taken the baton and raced to the top of the New York rankings. Of course, the season is still young, so expect plenty more movement in the coming weeks.
Here are this week's rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):
1. Grand Street Campus (Brooklyn) 7-1 (2)
Led by Alex Cuas, the Wolves are peaking at the right time.
2. St. Joseph-By-The-Sea (Staten Island) 3-0 (3)
Vikings knocked off rival Monroe Catholic and have been a surprise contender this year.
3. Xaverian (Brooklyn) 7-2 (4)
Clippers welcomed back ace pitcher Blaise Scerbo to the lineup, giving them even more punch.
