4A and 3A high-school baseball rankings — Week 2

At the start of every season, I send out e-mails to coaches and newspaper reporters around the state to try to gauge which teams belong in the state rankings.

There is a program every season that opens the year under the radar. In Class 3A baseball in 2012 that team was Mount Vernon.

The Bulldogs are off to an 8-0 start and jump into the top 10 this week at No. 5. Eastside Catholic (6-1) also enters the rankings at No. 9.

To make room for Mount Vernon and the Crusaders, Enumclaw and Southridge drop out of the rankings this week.

In 4A, the top three spots remain the same. Olympia makes the biggest jump, climbing from No. 10 to 5 after starting the year 6-0.

Tahoma and Jackson drop out of this week’s top 10. Walla Walla (6-1) makes its 2012 debut at No. 9, while Gonzaga Prep is No. 10.
