POWERADE baseball rankings: Week 9

The sectional playoffs were a rough time for most of the teams in last week's POWERADE state rankings, as four Top 10 teams found themselves bounced from the tournament.

No. 1 Lake Central is still alive in Class 4A, but the Nos. 2, 3 and 4 teams from last week are all out, as Huntington North, New Albany and Cathedral were all upset. With regionals set to begin on Saturday, look for more turnover in next week's edition of the POWERADE rankings.
