High school volleyball rankings: In search of sixth consecutive state title, Nebraska's Skutt Catholic headlines preseason MaxPreps Top 25
While the 2020 high school volleyball season might look different on a national level, one thing remains: You've got to win the matches in front of you. More than two-thirds of the states are pushing forward with fall sports, though some have a delayed calendar, but the national landscape will nonetheless look different.

California opted for a spring volleyball schedule, while some of the national tournaments were either canceled or rebooted in a different format. Michigan, with several Top 25-worthy teams is still trying to figure out if it's pushing back or moving forward.

Still, there's a ton of individual talent already on the court and equal number of teams capable of putting together state and perhaps national title runs.

We've included teams that have started playing or will start in September. Coaches can play their part in formulating accurate rankings by updating schedules and scores via MaxPreps.

High school girls basketball: Raven Johnson named 2020-21 HIGHSCORE National Player of the Year - HIGHSCORE
High school girls basketball: Raven Johnson named 2020-21 MaxPreps National Player of the Year
The postseason banquet after Raven Johnson's freshman season was a celebration of a state championship for Westlake (Atlanta). As part of the festivities, a representative from the company that was going to make the championship rings was there to measure everyone for their new jewelry.

"What finger do you want your ring on?" he asked. "You might win another one, so choose carefully."

Johnson, the young point guard who had to be coaxed to say much during the season, held up her hand.

"She was dead serious," Westlake coach Hilda Hankerson said. "There was no smile."

"I remember it like it was yesterday," Johnson said. "I held up all four fingers and said, 'You might as well get the other three sizes too because I'm going to win four state titles.'"

Which, of course, she and Westlake did. The Lions won AAAAAAA titles in 2018, 2019 and 2020, then a AAAAAA title this season, which they parlayed into a GEICO Nationals victory and a MaxPreps National Championship.
Johnson is the 2020-21 MaxPreps National Player of the Year after averaging 15.1 points, 5.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while leading Westlake to a 22-0 mark.

"I wouldn't call that cocky," said Johnson, who's headed to South Carolina. "I'd call that confident."

And Johnson credits that confidence for much of her success. "If you have confidence, it will carry you a long way," she said.

It didn't take long for Hankerson to recognize that Johnson was going to carry Westlake a long way. She first saw her at the local middle school which feeds Westlake.

"She was head and shoulders above the others," said the coach. "She really stood out."

And Hankerson, who's been running the show at Westlake for 26 years and played Division I basketball at Mercer, knew exactly what she was looking at.

"Raven was my point guard from Day One," she said. "The summer before she started ninth grade, I called my senior point guard over and said ‘You're getting ready to be my two guard.' "

And though Johnson obviously had the skills and the confidence, she also understood that basketball is a team game.

"As players get older, they sometimes get cliquish," Hankerson said. "The seniors just sit with the seniors, or the starters are always together. But Raven probably sat with more people than anyone I've ever coached, no matter how good they were."

At the same time, though, Johnson is ferociously competitive. She's always played with boys because "they challenge me every day. I like to compete," she said, and then pauses. "But most of all, I like to win."

She hopes to keep on winning playing for the Gamecocks and coach Dawn Staley, who's one of the greatest point guards in women's basketball history.

"She showed me videos of her playing, and I was like ‘Wow,' " said Johnson, who also knows Staley is a taskmaster.

That's OK with Johnson. "I don't like a coach who would kiss my butt. When you're screaming at me, I like that."

Of course, there's one thing she likes better.

"I like to win," she said, adding her goal at South Carolina is simple. "I just want to win a national championship."

And get another ring.

Top 25 high school football rankings: South Panola finishes No. 1 - HIGHSCORE
Top 25 high school football rankings: South Panola finishes No. 1
South Panola (Batesville, Miss.), one of the country's most dominant programs over the last decade, can add one more notch to its belt: national champion.

The Tigers, who finished 15-0 and captured Mississippi's 6A state title, posted eye-popping statistics on both sides of the ball en route to finishing No. 1 in the Xcellent 25 Rankings presented by the Army National Guard.

Loaded with star power and groomed by excellent coaching, South Panola allowed more than one touchdown in only four games this year. They averaged more than 45 points per game on offense.

In the state final against previously-unbeaten Meridian, the Tigers turned in an outstanding effort, winning easily 28-7.

Running back Qyendairs Griffin gave the Tigers a powerful threat running the ball, while Marcus Henry and Nickolas Brassell helped stretch defenses at wide receiver.

Antonio Connor and Kendrick Market were dynamic defensive backs for South Panola, and up front, Temario Strong and Issac Gross were nearly impossible to block.

The Tigers rose to No. 1 following the Pearland (Texas) upset of Trinity (Euless, Tex.), which was the top-ranked team heading into the final weekend of the season.

Finishing a close second to South Panola is Florida powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas. Like South Panola, Aquinas excelled on both sides of the ball and had an equally dominant season, culminating in a 5A state title.

High school football: Mater Dei, St. John Bosco head into showdown atop HIGHSCORE Top 25 California rankings - HIGHSCORE
High school football: Mater Dei, St. John Bosco head into showdown atop MaxPreps Top 25 California rankings
Like a Thanksgiving table, it's all arranged, neat and pretty, with all the fixings. Top-ranked Mater Dei and No. 2 St. John Bosco prevailed handily last week in tuneups and now meet Saturday for the unofficial 2021 spring California high school football championship.

The No. 1 Monarchs rolled a very good Santa Margarita team 49-13 on Friday behind 291 yards passing and four touchdowns from freshman quarterback Elijah Brown and two rushing scores by Raleek Brown. Elijah Brown fired TD passes to four different receivers.

Bosco led 48-0 at halftime en route to a 55-0 victory over Orange Lutheran. According to the Press-Telegram, sophomore quarterback Pierce Clarkson threw three touchdown passes on his first three attempts and the Braves scored six touchdowns on their first 22 plays while sharpening up for the Monarchs.

Bosco has outscored five opponents 266-91, while the Monarchs have a 174-40 margin over their four foes. The two national powers have split their last 10 meetings, including their last two to decide the Southern Section Division I title. The combined scores of those two games: St. John Bosco 52, Mater Dei 51.

Saturday's showdown is set for 7 p.m. at Santa Ana Stadium.

CALIFORNIA SPRING COMPUTER RANKINGS: Compare to human rankings below

The biggest movers in the rankings this week were No. 16 Serra (Gardena) and No. 21 Chaminade (West Hills).

Serra won its fourth straight, 38-17 over Bishop Amat, after a season-opening overtime loss to Long Beach Poly. Among those wins was a victory over Chaminade, which entered the rankings after beating previous No. 8 Alemany 34-27. Serra jumped seven spots this week.

Chaminade started 0-2 but has won three straight, getting a huge boost from starting quarterback Jaylen Henderson, who had planned to sit out the season. He returned in an overtime loss to Serra, but has since led his team to three straight wins.

In the win over Alemany, Henderson completed 15-of-20 for 244 yards and four touchdowns and rushed 11 times for 123 yards and another score. The highly-ranked dual threat has signed to Fresno State.

Another notable team performance last week was No. 8 Cathedral Catholic (San Diego), which moved up one spot after a 41-0 win over previous No. 23 Lincoln (San Diego). Lincoln had outscored its three previous opponents, 152-0. In Cathedral Catholic's win, Lucky Sutton rushed for 235 yards and three touchdowns and the defense allowed just 65 total yards and three first downs.

High school baseball rankings: Barbe climbs to No. 2 in HIGHSCORE Top 25 after starting season 20-0 - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball rankings: Barbe climbs to No. 2 in MaxPreps Top 25 after starting season 20-0
Barbe (Lake Charles, La.) last won a MaxPreps National Championship in 2014 when it finished 39-2. The Buccaneers are making another run at a possible national crown with 20 straight wins to start the 2021 season after an 8-2 win Tuesday over crosstown rival Sam Houston. That streak is enough to put Barbe at No. 2 in the MaxPreps Top 25 high school baseball rankings.

Barbe sits behind No. 1 Buford, which continues to clobber opponents with its pitching and hitting. Dylan Lesko proved that point when he struck out 10 and hit a home run against Marist. Lesko is the No. 2 player in the Class of 2022 by Perfect Game.

Calvary Christian Academy avenged its loss to IMG Academy with an 8-2 win. However, the Eagles fell to Pembroke Pines Charter to drop two spots to No. 7.

Meanwhile, Madison Central (Miss.) continues its rise up the rankings, jumping five to No. 4 after four lopsided wins by a combined score of 49-7.

Dropped out:
Grayson (Loganville, Ga.)

Game of the Week: Calvary Christian Academy 8, IMG Academy 2. The Eagles avenged their earlier loss to the Ascenders with an impressive effort by pitchers Irving Carter and Andrew Painter. Carter struck out eight in five innings while Painter fanned two.

Player of the Week: Malachi Lott, Gregory-Portland. In a win over Flour Bluff, Lott hit a home run and also threw a no-hitter with 11 strikeouts.

Recruit Watch: Brock Selvidge, Hamilton. In the season opener for the Huskies, Selvidge showed why he's one of the top two-way players in the nation, hitting two home runs and striking out six in three innings pitched.

Game to Watch: Barbe vs. Sam Houston. The state of Louisiana's two best teams reside right in Lake Charles. The two teams played on Tuesday and play again Thursday.
