There were only a few changes to this week’s rankings.
The top five in Class 4A stays the same, while the top eight in 3A remains unchanged.
Mead, with only two losses this season, has won seven straight in the GSL and climbs to No. 6 in 4A.
Gig Harbor climbs into the rankings for the first time this season after handing Olympia its first loss of the season April 23. The Tides split a pair of games against the Bears last week.
In 3A, the only change is Mountain View swaps places with GSHL rival Camas at Nos. 9 and 10.
Mount Si made a statement over the weekend, knocking off Puyallup — ranked No. 4 in 4A — 2-1, at Safeco Field. The Wildcats, ranked No. 3 in 3A, have the pitching to win a second straight state title, but they’ll face a tough road through the playoffs, setting up an exciting finish to the 2012 season.
