PZ - square(white)GAINESVILLE – After a full month of high school baseball, Florida is once again proving it is a hotbed for talent.

A total of six teams from the Sunshine State are ranked in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 National Baseball Rankings, including the No. 1 team in the country. All six are ranked atop the first all-classification Florida rankings of the season.

All six nationally-ranked Florida teams are state-ranked top three in their respective class in theprepzone.com state baseball poll for Week #3.

The Titans (9-0) get their toughest game of the season on Wednesday when they play at Ovideo. The Lions (10-1) are not nationally-ranked, but they are the top-ranked team in Class 7A.

Lake Worth Park Vista (#5 MaxPreps) is second in 8A behind Olympia. They are also ranked just behind the Titans in the first all-classification Florida rankings of the season. The Cobras (9-1) have won nine in a row since a season-opening loss to Taravella.

The third best team overall in Florida is Southwest Ranches Archbishop McCarthy. Not only are the Mavericks (10-0) unbeaten and nationally-ranked (7th), but they are also the top-ranked team in Class 5A.

Lynn Haven Mosley (8th), Winter Haven (11th) & Rockledge (23rd) are the other three FHSAA member schools to be recognized nationwide.
