No. 1 changed hands in five boys and four girls spring-playing states, while Texas favorites Rivera boys, Cinco Ranch boys, Coppell girls and Highland Park girls all carry undefeated records into this week's state semifinals.
The Jenks (Jenks, Okla.) girls delivered a dominating performance to win the Heart of America Classic, and in the process take over the No. 1 ranking in Oklahoma. Jenks outscored three opponents 17-0, which included an 8-0 win over former state No. 1 and defending state champion Norman North and a 6-0 win over Arkansas' top-ranked Bentonville.
Other No. 1-changing results of note: ThunderRidge (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) girls edged Rock Canyon (Littleton, Colo.) in a 1 vs. 2 matchup in Colorado; Hardin Valley Academy (Knoxville, Tenn.) boys defeated Science Hill to take over the state's No. 1 spot and a loss by Snohomish (Snohomish, Wash.) allowed longtime state power Camas (Camas, Wash.) to inherit the state's top ranking.
Switching gears to the end of the winter season in Texas, four of the eight teams in this week's Texas 6A boys and girls state semifinals are undefeated. If Coppell and Highland Park win their semifinals matches, it will not only mean undefeated teams will play for the Texas girls 6A title, but also the SIMA FAB 50 winter national crown. Coppell and Highland Park have been Nos. 1-2 in the past few FAB 50s.
