NEW HAMPSHIRE HARDBALL
1. Bishop Guertin (10-0)
BG enters the week as the only unbeaten team in Division I.
2. Concord (9-1)
The Crimson Tide suffered its first loss Friday against Keene (2-1) and will start a tough four-game stretch Tuesday: Pinkerton, at Memorial, at Londonderry and at Bishop Guertin.
3. Londonderry (8-2)
The Lancers were knocked out of the No. 1 spot following losses to Bishop Guertin and Nashua North, but they have quality wins against Exeter, Pinkerton and Keene.
4. Exeter (8-2)
The Blue Hawks have shut out four opponents and have allowed 10 runs in their six wins.
5. Portsmouth (6-2)
Pitching is still a question mark with the Clippers, who have allowed at least seven runs in five of their eight games.
6. John Stark (6-0)
The Generals are one of two undefeated teams in Division II, and make their first appearance in the Great 8.
7. Bow (6-0)
Bow is the other unbeaten in Division II. The Falcons knocked Hollis/Brookline out of the Great 8 with a 2-0 victory over the Cavaliers on Wednesday.
8. Pinkerton (6-3)
The Astros start a four-games-in-four-days stretch on Tuesday.
ON DECK: Hollis/Brookline (6-1), ConVal (6-1), Laconia (7-1), Belmont (6-1), Hopkinton (6-1), Gilford (6-1), Pittsfield (10-0), Woodsville (8-0) and Newmarket (5-0).
The GREAT 8, New Hampshire Hardball’s ranking of the top NHIAA baseball teams in the state regardless of division, will appear no later than Monday morning each week throughout the season. The rankings are based primarily on talent, level of competition and on-field performance.
