The Cannon Falls Bombers were ranked 17th in Class 2A in the first Let's Play Baseball high school poll last week. The latest poll came out Wednesday and they are now fourth.

I was really looking forward to seeing the Bombers and top-ranked Belle Plaine go toe to toe earlier this week, but the crummy weather took care of that. Belle Plaine is still atop the 2A poll.

Kenyon-Wanamingo fell out of the top 20, but two other Hiawatha Valley League teams are still ranked in Class 2A -- Rochester Lourdes at No. 11 and Pine Island is 18th. St. Charles is 15th and Caledonia 17th.

In Class A, Springfield is on top, Mankato Loyola is ninth and Randolph 10th. Cleveland is 18th and Wabasha-Kellogg 20th.

When the Faribault Falcons played the New Ulm Eagles last Saturday at US Bank Stadium, the Eagles were ranked second in the state. New Ulm is now on top of the Class 3A poll and the previous No. 1, Northfield fell all the way to No. 14. Still, two Big Nine teams are in the top 10 -- Winona is seventh and Mankato West ninth. Albert Lea is 13th, Jordan 16th and Kasson-Mantorville 20th.

In Class 4A, Wayzata jumps from fourth last week to No. 1. Lakeville North goes from eighth to fourth. Eastview is 13th, Burnsville 14th, Prior Lake 18th and Shakopee 20th.
