Cedar Ridge takes No. 1 in softball Super 25 as Neshoba Central ends win streak

By

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Cedar Ridge (Texas) took over the No. 1 spot in the USA TODAY Sports/NFCA High School Super 25 poll this week after Neshoba Central lost for the first time in 65 games.

The (25-0) Raiders jump up from the No. 3 spot, as the only unbeaten team in the top three, while Neshoba went to second after being no-hit by Nia Luckett (18 strikeouts) in Tuesday’s 2-0 home loss to Philadelphia. Despite their first defeat since May 2017, the Rockets stayed ahead of California’s Norco (25-1), who had their own win streak snapped at 33 games, with a 4-3 loss to Santiago in eight innings.
