Georgia High School Baseball Top 25 Rankings

Georgia High School Baseball Rankings: 1A-3A

Updated 5/31/22

Metter won their second consecutive state championship in Class 1A-Public, and they occupy the No. 1 spot in our final Georgia high school baseball rankings for Class 1A-3A. Metter went 10-0 in the playoffs, winning all five series 2-0. The other three state champions rounding out our top 4 are Wesleyan, Pike County, and Vidalia. 

You never know what the playoffs will bring, as the top teams from our last poll found out. Mt. Paran Christian, who was the No. 1 team headed into the final poll, was ousted by ultimate 1A-Private state champ Wesleyan. The playoffs also gave us some surprise teams like Vidalia, who jumped eight spots from No. 12 to No. 4.

Georgia High School Baseball Rankings: 4A-7A

Updated 5/31/22

Anything can happen in the playoffs, and it did – in a big way. North Oconee started the season 3-1 and then won 36 straight to close the season en route to the ITG Next Georgia top spot in the ITG Next Georgia high school baseball 4A-7A rankings. 

Pope made a great case for the top spot, running through their playoff opponents without a loss and a perfect 10-0 postseason, sweeping every round. Woodstock and Loganville were the other two state champions, rounding out the top 4. 

Houston County and Buford, who stayed at or around the top all season long, found themselves in one of those unfortunate elimination rounds in the quarterfinals, which was won by Buford. The Wolves were then eliminated by Pope. 

The beauty of the playoffs is that teams like Decatur and Apalachee – who had not sniffed the top 25 all season long – find themselves in our final poll as one of the state’s 25 best teams.

  1. North Oconee (4A) +2
  2. Pope (6A) +15
  3. Woodstock (7A) +7 
  4. Loganville (5A) +9 
  5. Cartersville (5A) E
  6. Etowah (7A) +3
  7. LaGrange (4A) +7
  8. Allatoona (6A) +8
  9. Parkview (7A) -7
  10. Buford (6A)-6
  11. Benedictine (4A) +1

Georgia High School Baseball Rankings: 1A-3A

Updated 5/16/22

Our Georgia high school baseball ranking for Class 1A-3A sees Mt. Paran Christian return to the No. 1 spot, followed by the 3A duo of Pierce County and North Hall. Lovett and Pace Academy round out the top five as we head into the semifinals for each classification.

Last year’s state champions in each classification are looking to defend their turf, and like last season, it won’t come easy. Mt. Paran Christian is not only our overall No. 1 team, but they are the defending Class 1A-Private champion. Metter, who currently sits in the No. 7 spot overall, is the defending Class 1A-Public champion. The remaining champions from a year ago are North Hall (3A) and Jeff Davis (2A).

Hopefully, your favorite team will bring home another state championship.

Parkview is red hot, riding a 10-game winning streak, but it’s not quite enough to unseat the No. 1 team in this week’s poll, the Houston County Bears. With Dylan Lesko out for the season after having Tommy John surgery, it will be interesting to see if Buford can make a deep run through the playoffs without their top player.

Lowndes has moved into the top 10, as they are one of the state’s hottest teams with a 17-3 mark over their last 20 games, including a 2-0 playoff sweep over North Paulding. North Springs also made a huge leap up the poll, moving up 15 spots to No. 8. The teams are just completing the first round of the playoffs, and we will now see attrition begins to shape the Georgia baseball top 25 poll.

As the high school baseball regular season begins to wind down, our updated Georgia baseball top 25 poll sees a lot of movement from the previous ranking of Class 1A-3A teams.

We have a new No. 1 with the 17-1 Pierce County Bears moving into the top spot. We also reward the undefeated Fellowship Christian Paladins by moving them into the No. 2 spot from their previous ranking outside the top 10. Wilcox County is another big mover, sliding into the No. 3 ranking with an undefeated season so far.

This week’s poll welcomes five new teams as North Cobb Christian, Pike County, Johnson County, Savannah Christian, and Elbert County enter the top 25. If you don’t see your favorite team, don’t worry – with the playoffs right around the corner, I’m certain there will be a few upsets, setting the stage for some new teams to jump into the Georgia baseball top 25.

Georgia High School Baseball Rankings: 1A-3A

Updated 3/7/22

 Mount Paran Christian moves into the top spot from their previous No.2 ranking, unseating Franklin County, who moves down to No.15 in this week’s ranking. Pierce County was the big mover, leaping 15 spots to the No.2 spot. Wilcox County moves 12 notches as this week’s No.11 team. We see several teams who were previously not ranked climb into the top 25 poll, including Cherokee Bluff, Long County, Callaway, Cook, and Mary Persons. Hebron Christian and Bremen are the other two previously unranked teams who played well enough over the last two weeks to claim a spot in our top 25. Let us know your thoughts on who deserves a look! 


Georgia High School Baseball Rankings: 1A-3A

Updated 2/20/22

The 2022 high school baseball season is underway here in Georgia, and ITG Next gives you our first regular season ranking of the top 25 teams in class 1A-3A. How does it compare to the preseason rankings we released a few weeks ago?  There’s not a whole lot of change, with Franklin Co. remaining at the top after splitting their first two games of the season. In fact, no one in the top of the ranking is off to a fast start, as many of the top 15 teams are near .500 baseball so far. It’s still too early to make big changes, although class A Public defending state champ Metter is winless through their first three games. Irwin County and Thomasville deserve to move up after each team starts fast, with 3-0 starts, and so does Appling and Pierce, who are both undefeated after two games each. Here’s a look at the Week 1 Top 25…read it, but don’t weep…there’s still a lot of baseball to be played!


Preseason Georgia High School Baseball Rankings: 4A-7A

Our preseason rankin for 4A-7A has the Buford Wolves as the team to beat, with Parkview at No.2. Both the Panthers and the Wolves bring back many returning contributors from last year’s teams, including Dylan Lesko and Riley Stanford. The Panthers will have a great shot at repeating as state champs in 7A, led by top pitcher Landon Stripling. Houston County, with returning standout Gage Harralson, will be among the teams to watch all season in our top 25. Let us know your thoughts! 


Preseason Georgia High School Baseball Rankings: 1A-3A

Last year’s 3A state runner-up Franklin County kicks off our first baseball preseason ranking as the No. 1 team. They bring back every member from last year’s 36 win squad, including the top three pitchers: Lawson Gailey, Kayne Jinks, and Myles Dodd. Mount Paran is looking to defend its class 1A private state title with 10 returning starters to help their chances. Our darkhorse? Look out for the 3A Appling County Pirates.
