Maintaining its undefeated record into April, Fyffe remained in the No. 3 position in Class 3A in the latest Alabama Sports Writers Association state high school baseball rankings, released Thursday morning.

In Class 2A, Ider also kept its No. 9 ranking from last week as one of two DeKalb County teams featured in this week’s rankings.

Boasting a sparkling 16-0 record, Fyffe last played March 30 in the Albertville Invitational. The Red Devils defeated New Hope 7-2 after picking up a 6-4 victory against East Lawrence the day before.

Collinsville (11-13) was nominated for the 3A poll this week, but fell shy of cracking the top 10. In their last game, the Panthers took a 9-4 loss at Geraldine on Wednesday.

Meanwhile in 2A, Ider (19-7) slid past Section 4-3 on Wednesday after defeating the Lions 15-9 in Game 1 of the series Monday.
