May, 16, 2012
After games on Saturday, May 12

It's win or go home for Texas teams and so far, some highly ranked squads have been shown the door. Seven Lakes' impressive campaign came to an end in the first round against Cy Ranch. A similar fate came for Colleyville Heritage and Georgetown.

The top teams in Class 5A and 4A remain in the running, as CC Carroll and Calallen moved one step closer to making good on their preseason hype. They lead the six Texas teams in this week's POWERADE FAB 50.

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

1. Calallen (Corpus Christi) 31-1 (1)
Wyatt Mathisen continues to come up big in the postseason, recording a save and the Wildcats' lone RBI in a 1-0 victory against Victoria West. Will face Ray in Class 4A regional quarterfinals.

2. Carroll (Corpus Christi) 25-3 (2)
O'Shea Dumes was solid on the mound as the Tigers beat Reagan, setting up a matchup against S.A. Johnson.

3. Arlington Martin 30-3-1 (3)
Swept Odessa in two games, move on to face El Paso Franklin.

Texas Week 7 POWERADE baseball rankings: CC Carroll back on top

April, 17, 2012
After games on Saturday, April 14

For the first time this season and the first time in 64 games, Calallen has lost a district game. The Wildcats lost 9-3 to Moody, a team they beat earlier this year. A chance at redemption is right around the corner, though, as Calallen will take on new No. 1 CC Carroll on Saturday. Though Calallen is in 4A and Carroll is in 5A, the game could be a needed boost for the winner with the playoffs looming.

In the POWERADE FAB 50, CC Carroll moves back into the top 10 while Calallen drops to 15th.

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

1. CC Carroll (Corpus Christi) 20-2 (2)
Tigers beat S.A. Highlands behind Courtney Hawkins, who went 4-for-4 with three runs and a HR. Big matchup against No. 3 Calallen looms on Saturday.

2. Seven Lakes (Katy) 23-2-1 (4)
Won five straight and 15 of their last 16 games after wins against Strake Jesuit, Morton Ranch and MacArthur. Contest against Spring Branch Memorial on Friday.

3. Calallen (Corpus Christi) 25-1 (1)
Fell to rival Moody 9-3, marking their first district loss in 64 games.

Also, Seven Lakes, which has jumped out to an impressive 18-1-1 start will face No. 7 Memorial this Friday in a contest that could shake up the rankings.

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

1. Carroll (Corpus Christi) 16-0 (1)

Manvel debuts, Pearland drops out of Week 5 Texas rankings

September, 26, 2011
After games ending Saturday, Sept. 24

The top three teams in ESPNHS POWERADE Texas Football Team Rankings polished off unbeaten opponents last week. No. 1 Allen and No. 2 Katy breezed to convincing victories. But No. 3 Trinity (Euless) needed overtime to prevail over 4-1 Heritage (Colleyville), 38-35. The Trojans managed to increase their streak of consecutive regular-season victories to 22. Klein Collins (Spring) saw its regular-season winning streak end at 23 games after a 34-28 loss in three overtimes to Klein Oak (Spring). The defeat cost the Tigers 13 slots in the ranking. Defending Class 5A Division I state champion Pearland dropped out of the Top 25 after its a 31-24 loss to previously winless Clear Springs (League City).

Nationally, Allen moved back up to the No. 3 spot in the POWERADE FAB 50 after De La Salle (Calif.) lost its first game of the year.

And without further ado, here's this week's top 25 (last week's rankings are in parentheses):

1. Allen 4-0 (1)
Alabama commit Alec Morris completed 22-of-32 passes for 306 yards and four touchdowns in a dominating 44-7 victory in a District 8-5A opener at 3-1 Plano. On Friday, the Eagles host 2-2 Lewisville.

2. Katy 4-0 (2)
Brooks Haack, a Louisiana Lafayette commit, threw for three scores, rushed for one in a 46-7 rout of 3-1 Seven Lakes (Katy) in a District 19-5A opener. The Tigers face 2-2 Strake Jesuit (Houston) on Friday at Rice Stadium.

3. Euless Trinity 5-0 (3)
The Trojans needed an overtime field goal from Austin Lopez to extend their regular-season winning streak to 22 with a 38-35 squeaker over 4-1 Heritage (Colleyville). On Thursday, the Trojans face 3-2 rival L.D. Bell (Hurst).
