After games on Saturday, April 21
They won't meet in the playoffs, but fans got their dream matchup last week when Calallen and CC Carroll met in a battle of the top teams in Corpus Christi and the state.
This time, Calallen of Class 4A prevailed against CC Carroll of Class 5A by the count of 7-1, thanks to a strong pitching performance from Armando Arevalo, who took a no-hitter into the seventh and is 7-0 on the season. The win could have future rankings implications should the two end up winning state titles.
Nationally, the outcome moved Calallen back into the top 10 at No. 7 in the POWERADE FAB 50, which includes six teams from the Lone Star State.
Here are this week's rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):
1. Calallen (Corpus Christi) 28-1 (3)
Wildcats picked up a huge win against previous No. 1 CC Carroll, thanks to Armando Arevalo's dominance on the mound during a 7-1 win.
2. Carroll (Corpus Christi) 22-3 (1)
Tigers lost their hold of the top spot after a 7-1 loss to Calallen. The result could have future implications should these two vie for No. 1 in the final rankings.
3. Deer Park 19-1 (4)
Deers have made the state and nation take notice with their consistent play.
