The South Caldwell High baseball  team is ranked fifth in this week's ESPN POWERADE North Carolina Baseball Poll. The Spartans (15-1 overall; 8-0 Northwestern 3A/4A Conference) won the East Rutherford Easter Tournament Wednesday night. South Caldwell defeated the host school, East Rutherford, 11-0 in the

championship game. The Spartans have won this tournament two years in a row. They defeated Alexander Central in the finals last season.
Providence, which is led by former Watauga assistant coach Danny Hignight, is No.1 for the fifth week in a row. T.C. Roberson is ranked sixth, Ardrey Kell is seventh; North Bumcombe is eighth and Davie County, which defeated WHS earlier this year, is ninth.
