Top 20 High School Rankings - w/o 5/12/2024

The Big Time 20  (as of 5/12/24)

      1. Downingtown West (18-0) Previous Rank: 1

It was a light game week due to the deluge of rain in PA and the Whippets only played one game as a result, beating Unionville 11-1. The Whippets take on their cross-town rival Downingtown East on Tuesday in the BTS Game of the Week.

      2. Hempfield Area (18-1) Previous Rank: 2

The Spartans and Riley Miller (BTS Top 60) picked up two more wins last week, extending their winning streak to 14 straight games, during which they have allowed just 14 runs.

      3. Seneca Valley (19-1) Previous Rank: 3

The Raiders have a healthy Lexie Hames (BTS Top 60) back and have once again found their groove, going 2-0 last week with convincing wins over Butler and Shaler Area.

      4. Cumberland Valley (17-2) Previous Rank: 4

The Eagles responded to a tough 1-0 loss by winning all 3 games they played last week, outsourcing their opponents by a score of 25-5 on the week.

      5. Downingtown East (17-1) Previous Rank: 5

Downingtown East added two more wins last week, putting their current winning   streak at 10 games. They have been dominant during this winning streak, beating opponents by a combined score of 104-9. Rachael Schumann and the Cougars will take on #1 ranked Downingtown West on Tuesday.

       6. North Penn (17-2) Previous Rank: 6

The North Penn Knights are looking VERY dangerous as the postseason    approaches, running their winning streak to 9 straight games after a 5-0 win over Souderton and a convincing 11-2 win over Central Bucks South.

       7.  Neshannock (19-0) Previous Rank: 7

Another 3 win week puts the Lancers at 19-0 and in prime position to make a deep run in the postseason. BTS Top 60 athletes Addy Frye, Jaidon Nogay, and Gabby Quinn and the rest of the Lancers have been nothing short of dominant, outscoring their opponents 198-8 on the year.

       8. Quakertown (18-1) Previous Rank: 8

The Panthers have responded nicely after losing their first game of the season, rattling off 3 convincing wins last week (4-0, 16-1, and 11-0). They will wrap up the regular season with a game against Abington on Tuesday.

       9. Blue Mountain (19-1) Previous Rank: 9

Marla Freiwald (BTS Top 60) and the Blue Mountain Eagles have now won 13 consecutive games since dropping an early April matchup with Pine-Grove. The defending 4A state champs appear to be peaking at the right time and should make some noise in the postseason. 

     10. Juniata (18-1) Previous Rank: 10

The Indians have won 4 consecutive games, shutting out their opponent in each of the victories. BTS aTop 60 athlete Elizabeth Gaisior is locked in and that is a scary sight for the opposition. Expect Juniata to be a force this playoff season.
