For the first time this season, Bridge City is not sitting atop the 409 Sports Baseball rankings. Jasper takes over the lead after going (4-0-1) last week, with wins over Center, Needville, Bridge City and Central Heights.

LCM had a tough loss against Hardin-Jefferson to open district, but rallied for a (4-2) week with victories against Shepherd, New Waverly and Buffalo. The Battlin' Bears (12-5) have the most wins in the 409.

While Bridge City and Kirbyville check in at four and five respectively, it's Hardin-Jefferson making the biggest move this week. The Hawks move up five spots after taking care of LCM, Orangefield and Kelly last week. 

Also Port Neches-Groves cracks the top ten despite a (5-9-1) record. The Indians have played arguably the toughest schedule in the area, and have actually beaten Jasper (11-0) earlier this year. Up in Lufkin last weekend PNG beat the host Panthers, Nacogdoches and Bryan Rudder.
