LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville (Kentucky) Male completed just the second perfect season in Kentucky state history, and the Bulldogs ascended to No. 1 in Thursday’s final USA TODAY Sports/NFCA High School Super 25 poll.
Male (39-0), which outscored its opponents 338-39 this year, leapfrogged both Neshoba Central (Philadelphia, Mississippi) and Norco (California) in the last ranking of the season. They had much closer games in the state finals, and still managed to win all three contests. They beat Boyle County (Danville, Kentucky), 4-0, in last Friday’s quarterfinal, then outlasted Clay County (Manchester, Kentucky) 2-1, in eight innings, in the semis, before defeating Warren East (Bowling Green, Kentucky), 6-1, in Saturday’s championship.
