There was some serious shuffling among the top five in Class 4A this week, including a new No. 1.
Kentwood, which opened the year at No. 2, climbs into the top spot after Puyallup dropped a pair of games to Rogers and Emerald Ridge last week.
The Vikings fall all the way to No. 4, making room for two undefeated teams in Lake Stevens and Olympia to move into second and third respectively.
Woodinville went 1-2 last week and falls to No. 5.
Marysville-Pilchuck is off to a 7-1 start and climbs into the final spot in the rankings this week. The Tomahawks are scheduled to play Lake Stevens Wednesday.
The 3A rankings remain unchanged this week, but I did add Highline and Kelso to the watch list.
The Pirates are 7-1 behind the strong play of Jonny Locher, a Stanford commit, who is hitting .600 with four home runs, three triples, two doubles and 17 RBI. He has scored 23 runs.
The Highlanders went 5-0 in a tournament in California and are also 7-1 on the season.
Top-ranked Mount Si travels to Lake Washington Friday for a matchup of the top two teams in KingCo 3A/2A.
