By By Brandon Parker
After games on Monday, March 12
With district play already underway, there's lots of movement in this week's baseball rankings. Corpus Christi continues to dominate the scene, with CC Carroll and Calallen both rolling to undefeated starts behind strong offensive showings.
Meanwhile, S.A. Churchill debuted at No. 4 in the local rankings and No. 21 in the POWERADE FAB 50 after handing nationally ranked Westlake its first loss of the season.
Here are this week's rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):
1. Carroll (Corpus Christi) 10-0 (1) With Courtney Hawkins continuing to dominate at the plate and Josh Cruz leading the team in RBIs, the Tigers continue to roll.
2. Calallen (Corpus Christi) 15-0 (2) Wildcats won their three games last week with ease, posting two shutouts and outscoring opponents 24-2. Lee Gonzalez leads the team with a .579 average.
3. Plano West 11-1 (5) The Wolves showed their offensive firepower in a 12-4 win against Plainview, hitting six doubles to go with a Billy McKinney home run.
