Each week VYPE's Joshua Waclawczyk and Scott Terrell will bring you their rankings of the top Baseball and Softball programs in the area broken up into 5A-6A, 1A-4A, and Private Schools. Will you agree with our rankings? Most assuredly not. After all, these are just our opinions and we are sure there are much smarter people out there that may have better rankings. So if you have your own thoughts on these rankings let us know on Twitter (@vypeatx) and Instagram (@vype_atx).
This week's Austin Softball rankings are below and we have some new additions, although Leander is still the team to beat. Check them out!
VYPE ATX 5A-6A SOFTBALL TOP 10
Similar to the boys 5A/6A rankings we have a #1 vs #2 matchup this week. Unlike the boys though, we are being a little selfish here. Georgetown Eastview did lose to Glenn last week and could have been moved below Georgetown, and if you argue that we wouldn't argue back. If Eastview can beat Leander we look like geniuses, if they lose, well then that number two spot will be up for grabs in the rankings headed to the playoffs. And yes Cedar Ridge did drop while Eastview didn't, but this has more to do with the number of games and the fact that we erroneously left Bowie out of our rankings last week (sorry Bowie!)
VYPE ATX 1A-4A SOFTBALL TOP 10
Only one change this week and that's at 10. We considered moving Lake Belton down but lost to a 6A opponent. The lone new team? Blanco, who sits first in their district with a win over 4th ranked Llano. A matchup this Friday with Llano could see them move up even more next week.
VYPE ATX PRIVATE SCHOOL SOFTBALL TOP 5
Veritas and Hill Country Christian move into the rankings this week with Hill Country Christian moving all the way to number one with the recent struggles of Brentwood and St. Dominic

After a huge 15-0 shut-out win over McKinney, the Prosper Lady Eagles have improved to a 7-2 district record (19-3-1overall). With an 85% win percentage, the Lady Eagles are continuing to do all that it takes to make a push towards playoffs with goals of being the best not only in their district, but the state.
Prosper currently sits at the No. 2 spot in their district just behind a strong Allen team, but ahead of tough district opponents like Denton Guyer and McKinney Boyd. The Lady Eagles have outscored their opponents by 164 runs so far this season.
The Lady Eagles have had huge wins over the likes of Flower Mound, Cedar Hill, Bishop Lynch, Braswell, Southlake Carroll, and more. With a current four game win-streak, Prosper shows no signs of slowing down as they prepare for their upcoming game against Braswell on Friday, April 16.
