USA Today again names Rockwall-Heath top prep baseball team in U.S.

By J.J. Smith (In Focus Photography photo). For the third time in a row USA Today newspaper named Rockwall-Heath the number one high school baseball team in the nation in their Super 25 Index May 27.

The Hawks top-ranking came as a result of their string of 37 straight victories, two recent playoff wins over Dallas Kimball, 9-0 and 18-3, plus their shutout of Carrollton Newman Smith, 6-0.

The ranking came out just before they beat Cleburne last week, 4-1, and 6-2, in their best of three-game Class 4A Region II Semi-final playoff series to advance to the Finals against Frisco Wakeland.

But since the Hawks also lost their first game of the season to Cleburne, 4-3, it will be interesting to see how that affects their ranking, especially if they win the Region II Championship.

The number two team continues to be Sumrall, Mississippi (34-1), after the three-time defending state champion Bobcats won the Class 3A State Championship last weekend.
