LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Unbeaten No. 1 Buford kept rolling and most everything else remained the same in this week’s NFCA Summer/Fall High School Top 25 Coaches Poll.

The reigning Georgia 7A champion (24-0) Wolves defeated Collins Hill, 9-1 Tuesday, in their only action over the past seven days. Buford plays Dacula later today in a Region 8-7A contest, having defeated the Falcons by a combined 24-2 margin in their two earlier meetings.

A second loss in two weeks couldn’t keep Gretna on Buford’s heels any longer, as the (30-3) Dragons fell behind Holy Family (22-1) to the No. 3 spot. New No. 2 Holy Family rolled by Rocky Mountain, 16-3, in its lone game last Friday.

Oklahoma state titlist Caddo (39-2), which defeated Red Oak, 1-0, in last Saturday’s Class A final remains fourth, while Eaton (22-1), a 16-0 victor over Brush last Thursday, rounds out the first five.

Elsewhere, new No. 16 Arvada West (19-3) moved ahead of Columbine (19-4) among Colorado schools, and Iowa 2A state champion Regina Catholic (30-8) leapfrogged the Nebraska duo of Papillion-LaVista (25-8) and Lincoln East (29-8) into the No. 22 position.

State rankings submitted by the 2023 NFCA High School Steering Committee are used to compile the NFCA Summer/Fall High School Top 25 Coaches Poll. Teams are chosen based on performance, roster quality, strength of schedule, and active NFCA membership. Five states — Colorado, Georgia, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Missouri — play a fall fastpitch schedule, while Iowa recently completed its summer season.
