No. 1 College Park (Pleasant Hill, Calif.) leads a group of four teams from the state, all of them in the top 10, in the preseason Super 25 baseball rankings.
Right-handed pitcher Joe DeMers and left-hander Chris Brown give the Falcons from College Park a chance to possibly improve upon their 27-3 record in 2014. After them, the Golden State is represented by No. 2 JSerra (San Juan Capistrano), No. 6 San Clemente, and No. 7 Dana Hills (Dana Point).
Florida also has four schools in the Super 25: No. 5 Olympia (Orlando); No. 10 Archbishop McCarthy (Fort Lauderdale); No. 11 Northeast (St. Petersburg); and No. 21 Park Vista (Lake Worth).
Lambert (Suwanee, Ga.), the No. 1 team in last season’s Super 25, is back in the rankings at No. 16.
