Filling out this list was exhilarating and exhausting all in one. Thanks to the dozens of people who helped with their eyewitness opinions on this list.

New High school baseball power rankings as of April 19, 2017 according to Varsity Sports
In Class A baseball, things are holding pretty steady at the top. Dickinson is off to a 7-1 start, including a big sweep over Century last week. West Fargo stays put at number two with a 5-1 record against EDC teams. Positions 3 thru 5 get tricky for me, but these teams will sort things out themselves over the next few weeks. Fargo North is on the bubble after sweeping Davies to open the year and knocking the Eagles out of the top five.
