LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Two more wins kept Lake Creek unbeaten and firmly in the No. 1 spot in the USA TODAY Sports/NFCA High School Super 25 for a sixth-straight week.

The (30-0) Lions rolled past Caney Creek for the second time in less than a month, 11-1, last Friday, then edged Katy, 1-0, on Tuesday. Lake Creek has now won 68 of its last 70 games.

For the second week in a row, most of the teams in the Super 25 remain unchanged, including the top 10. Riverton (18-1) and Marist (11-2-1) swapped the No. 8 and No. 9 positions, though.

Elsewhere, Deer Park (31-2), Damascus (12-0) and Donovan Catholic (9-0) all kept winning to jump ahead of Pineville (33-3), which lost 4-3 in eight innings to Sam Houston on Saturday in the Louisiana state Class 5A quarterfinals.

Unbeaten Monroe-Woodbury (10-0) makes its Super 25 debut this week at No. 19, also just ahead of Pineville, while the other newcomer is No. 22 South Lyon (5-1), which replaces fellow Michigan school Owosso on the list.

State rankings submitted by the 2022 NFCA High School Steering Committee are used to compile the USA TODAY Sports/NFCA High School Super 25. Teams are chosen based on performance, roster quality, strength of schedule, and active NFCA membership.
