Editor’s note: Comprised of teams from the Central California Athletic League, Central California Conference, Valley Oak League and Western Athletic Conference. Last week’s ranking and current records in parenthesis. Records as of Sunday, March 31.
1. (1) Oakdale (11-0-1): Lexie Webb began the week with a five-inning perfect game against Sierra and then capped it with a home run and two RBI in a 5-0 victory over Manteca. The Mustangs are also No. 1 in MaxPreps’ Sac-Joaquin Section rankings.
2. (2) Golden Valley (10-1): The Cougars were idle last week and return to Central California Conference play with three road games, including trips to Buhach Colony, Patterson and Merced.
3. (3) Enochs (9-1-1): The Eagles shut out longtime rival Gregori and then solidified its place as the frontrunner in the Central California Athletic League with a 2-1 win over Turlock and its ace Shelby Frutoz. Enochs walked-off on the Bulldogs, plating the winning run in the bottom of the seventh.
4. (4) East Union (6-4): The Lancers defeated Central Catholic in a rain-shortened contest and then had its non-league home game against Lincoln of Stockton washed out by Mother Nature.
5. (5) Atwater (8-2): The Falcons split four games at a Reno tournament and return to Central California Conference play this week with home games against Central Valley and Buhach Colony.
On the bubble: Merced (8-3), Turlock (8-4), Ceres (8-2), Patterson (7-3).
