Chatsworth repeats!

BELLA VISTA, AR—Chatsworth High became the first back-to-back No. 1 team in the 13 years of the BCA-Baseball America rankings when the Chancellors held off Corpus Christi Moody to finish first in the final 2004 poll.

Corpus Christi made a late surge for No. 1 by jumping from the sixth position after winning the Texas 5A state championship to finish with a 42-1 record.

Chatsworth had wrapped up a second consecutive CIF L.A. City Section championship to end the season with a 35-0 record and a California record 50 wins in a row over two years.

The final rankings are expanded from 25 to 50 teams to give additional national recognition.

Coach Tom Meusborn’s Chancellors, who were No. 24 and Moody No. 28 in the pre-season rankings, didn’t claim the top position this season until the next to last poll.

Trailing Chatsworth and Moody in the first 10 in order were Farragut (TN), Riverside (SC), Columbus (GA), La Cueva (NM), Owasso (OK), Nova (FL), Monsignor Pace (FL) and Tomball (TX).

The late season success of teams in state championships resulted in several newcomers in the rankings. Likewise, upsets dropped some early season contenders. Moeller, the Ohio Division I champion, jumped to No. 19, to lead the way.

Other new teams in the first 25 were California Central Coast winner Wilcox at No. 21, Texas 5A runner-up Flower Mound at No. 22 and New York City Public Schools champion James Monroe at No. 23.

Jenison (MI) and Deering (ME), the Nos. 25 and 41 teams, had not completed their seasons and were competing in state championships.
