Kansas HS Power 25: Week 6

PBR Kansas POWER 25

The Kansas high school baseball season kicked off on March 17th, opening day for regular season action under KSHSAA regulations. Leading up to opening day, we published our team previews ahead of and during the beginning of the 2024 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, leading into the official PBR Kansas Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

While much of the initial lists are weighted on previous performances, prospects, and projections, updates will be inherently tied to the production on the field. Simply put: wins, level of competition, and prospects matter. A human element to the list will still provide important information on the nuances and intricacies that the season bestows. Whether it is a close loss in a rivalry game, a five-game in three days gauntlet, or a bout of sickness that depletes a lineup, you can count on PBR to critically examine the playing field at all times.

Following Opening Day, our scouts will be out and about covering the 2024 season and will be publishing scout notes and additional in-season content along the way, like Power 25 updates, Diamond Notes, Scout Blogs, and Player of the Week awards.

+ Olathe West remains undefeated thanks to a pitching staff that is on pace to put up historic numbers in the Sunflower state. 

+ Free State moves to No. 2 thanks to more quality wins on their schedule. One of the most balanced teams in the state. 

+ Wichita Heights earns two wins against Bishop Carroll and continues to move up the rankings. 

+ Blue Valley has still not found their full stride, but the Tigers are starting to click and are going to be a very dangerous team the second half of the spring.

+ Abilene enters our rankings after two wins over ranked Clay Center, moving to 13-1.
