Brazoswood HS was no match for the Yellowjackets and Alvin continues to impress RT pollsters.
15. St. Johns College HS - Washington DC 8-2 (16)
The Cadets rebound from their California Adventure and defeat Ryken and O’Connell to improve to 8-2. A big match-up against DeMatha was postponed due to weather.

They too rebound from a tough ending to a good Anderson Bat tourney with wins over a tough Los Gatos team and a not so tough St. Francis of Watsonville squad.
17. Vista Murrietta - California – 12-4 (18)
Temecula Valley and Great Oak were no contest for the mighty Bronocs this week as they move up one spot to 17.

19. Pleasure Ridge - Kentucky - DNP (11)
Their web site still is still listing that their scores from games from last May, their weather stinks and their team still hasn’t played a game evidently. If they have, we assume they don’t care much about it, or it would have been posted on their web site. They drop due to a complacent attitude.
20. Moody High School – 20-2 (NR)
They were 2007 4A state Champs and are on a roll with a 20-2 record this year. Welcome to the poll, Trojans.
