NEW! NorCal Softball Top 20

The Sac-Joaquin Section floods the Top 5 as midseason arrives •

There was lot of shuffling over the first two weeks of April. San Benito was the biggest mover, entering the ranks at No. 13 after a recent 6-0 stretch that included knocking off previous No. 17 Notre Dame-Salinas 7-5, and then winning five straight to claim the Spring Jamboree Las Vegas Championship. In that tournament, the Haybalers defeated Shadow Ridge-Las Vegas — a team which claimed a win over current No. 8 Freedom-Oakley at the Arizona Tournament of Champions in early March.
