LOUISVILLE, Ky. — East Coweta kept rolling, and maintained its place atop the NFCA Fall High School Top 25 Coaches Poll for a third straight week.

After Wednesday’s 13-1 rout of South Paulding, the two-time defending Class 7A state champion Indians are now 14-0 this season and 82-2 over the last two-plus seasons. They’ll put their unbeaten record on the line later today at Northgate.

Meanwhile, Nebraska’s Papillion-LaVista (16-0) won five games to take over the No. 2 spot, as Sequoyah lost twice at the Silo Tournament to drop all the way to 16th, below a bunch of teams that went unbeaten, including fellow Oklahoma school Kiowa (20-2).

Missouri Class 4 state champion Blue Springs South (8-0) is the new No. 3 squad, as it kicked its season into full swing with a seven-win week, which included scoring 26 runs over its last three contests.

At No. 13, Roff (17-1) is one of two newcomers to the rankings this week, having continued its stellar play with a 2-1 victory at Red Oak, the second-ranked team in Oklahoma’s Class B. Nebraska’s Gretna (12-3) is the other fresh face in the poll at No. 24.

State rankings submitted by NFCA member coaches are used to compile the NFCA Fall High School Top 25 Coaches Poll. Teams are chosen based on performance, roster quality and strength of schedule. Five states — Colorado, Georgia, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Missouri — play a fall fastpitch schedule, while Iowa recently completed its summer season.
