Four teams from the Cedar Valley and northeast Iowa are featured in the Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association's second poll of the season.

Two area squads ranked among the top-10 in their respective classes are newcomers to the poll. Independence (9-2) debuted at No. 6 in Class 3A this week, while Dike-New Hartford (8-2) premiered at No. 5 in Class 2A.

There was no change in Don Bosco's ranking from the 2021 preseason poll. The  defending Class 1A state champion Dons (7-2) are No. 3 again this week. South Winneshiek (5-1) is ranked four spots behind the Dons at No. 7.
