Archbishop McCarthy benefited from the departure of the previous No. 2, North Gwinnett (Suwanee, Ga.), which fell out with a playoff loss.

There are five new teams, led by Alabama 6A champion Helena. The Huskies (38-6) defeated Cullman 5-3 and 4-2 as Troy Cordrey threw a three-hitter in the deciding game.

The other new teams: No. 20 Rockwall-Heath (Rockwall, Texas); No. 21 Basic (Henderson, Nev.);  No. 23 Martin (Arlington, Texas); and No. 25 Calvary Christian (Clearwater, Fla.).

Besides North Gwinnett, four other teams dropped out of the rankings: No. 9 West Orange (Winter Garden, Fla.); No. 20 Calvert Hall (Baltimore); No. 21 Mill Creek (Hoschton, Ga.); and No. 23 Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas).
