Rank, School, Record, Classification

1. Ponte Vedra (1-1, Class 2A)

Notable win: Nease.

Glance: The Sharks were the wire-to-wire Super 6 No. 1 team last year and reached the state title game before an excruciating loss to St. Thomas Aquinas.

Notable wins: Bishop Moore, Cardinal Mooney.

Glance: Two quality Ws for the Bulldogs, with victories over Cardinal Mooney (12-9) and Bishop Moore (11-5). They’ve got Nease on Tuesday, Pope (Ga.) on Thursday and Gulf Breeze (Friday).

5. Providence (3-0, Class 1A)

Notable win: Episcopal.

Glance: The Stallions have started strong, with easy Ws over Father Lopez (18-1), Episcopal (13-7) and Sandalwood (8-0). They’ve got two difficult ones to close the week (Fleming Island on Thursday and Chiles on Friday). Providence was an 11-6 team a year ago.

6. Bartram Trail (1-0, Class 2A)
