POWERADE baseball rankings: Week 8

For the second week in a row, St. Laurence lost a game but still remains in the No. 1 spot in the POWERADE state rankings. The Vikings were shocked by Brother Rice, but the have too many quality wins this season (including a 2-0 record against No. 2 Providence Catholic) to be bumped from the top spot just yet.

Providence Catholic remains at No. 2 this week, while Plainfield North climbs one spot up to No. 3.
