POWERADE baseball rankings: Week 6

For the second week in a row, there's a new team atop the POWERADE state baseball rankings, as St. John's (Shrewsbury) takes over the No. 1 spot for the first time this season.

The Pioneers beat two elite teams last week, silencing No. 10 Burncoat and then dropping BC High, which was ranked No. 1 at the time.

Walpole jumps from No. 5 to No. 2 after a 3-0 week, and Springfield Cathedral is the new No. 3 team after holding off Western Mass rival East Longmeadow.
