We're a couple weeks away from the end of the regular season and we're starting to see some separation among the districts as the top two or three teams in each are putting some distance between them and the rest. And in those handful of teams, we have a handful of teams cementing themselves as true state contenders.
Let's get right into this week's rankings.
In this week's iteration, there are two new No. 1 teams - Dallas Kimball (5A) and Arlington Grace Prep (private) - and six newly-ranked teams (Coppell; Granbury; Farmersville; Weatherford Christian; Pantego Christian; Fort Worth Lake Country Christian).

After a very abbreviated 2020 schedule, the 2021 season is just underway with pretty much every team in the area getting started over the weekend - some already with a handful of games under their belts.
The mostly lost season a year ago has baseball coaches, players and fans/parents antsy to make sure the entire year plays out, culminating with crowning state champions across all classifications and organizations.
What we'll do instead is highlight a team we think has a high chance to win state, a team that could be dark horse in that class as well as a preseason player to watch in each class.
