Each class had new teams make big leaps into the top 10 this week.

Class 4A

The top five of Class 4A didn’t move much this week, with the only change coming from a swap between Stillwater (12-2, 10-2), ranked No. 3 in the state Associated Press poll, and No. 4 Lakeville North (13-4, 12-3). The difference between the two teams came in their latest games: the Ponies beat seventh-ranked Forrest Lake 4-3 in extra innings, while the Panthers lost 10-0 to No. 10 Burnsville.

Burnsville (11-4, 11-3), moved up from No. 13. The win against Lakeville North was the seventh-straight win for the Blaze.

Class 3A

The top two teams in Class 3A have yet to lose a game, as No. 1 Waconia and second-ranked St. Cloud Tech both have a record of 13-0.

Benilde-St. Margaret’s (10-4, 8-1) moved up three spots, from No. 8 to No. 5, after recording its fifth-straight win on Monday with a 1-0 victory over Chanhassen (6-8, 6-4). The Scarlet Knights lost 4-3 to Bloomington-Kennedy (4-10, 3-7), giving up all four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Marshall (8-5, 6-3) climbed from No. 12 to No. 10, rounding out the top 10.

Class 2A

While the top three remained stagnant this week, there were two huge jumps in Class 2A.

Caledonia (11-2, 10-1) lost 8-5 to LaCrescent (9-5, 9-4) on Tuesday, but that was its first loss since April 8. The long win streak bumped the Warriors up to No. 4 after being ranked No. 11 last week.

The other significant jump came from Saulk Centre (13-2, 9-1), from No. 18 to No. 10. The Mainstreeters have an eight-game win streak. They beat Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta (6-8, 3-7) twice on Tuesday, both by a score of 4-3.

Class 1A

Canby (7-1, 6-0) lost its first game of the season 5-1 to Pipestone Area (3-7, 1-6). The Lancers have won every game since, pushing their win-streak to seven games. They’ve dominated their competition, outscoring opponents 66-7 in those seven games. This run of dominance has bumped them from No. 17 last week to No. 10.
