Fuquay-Varina tops the final News & Observer high school baseball rankings, and Wake Forest-Rolesville keeps the top spot in girls’ softball after last weekend’s state championship series.

Fuquay-Varina won the first game in its best-of-three 4A series against South Mecklenburg but dropped the next two games.

Alexander Central won two straight against Wake Forest-Rolesville in the 4A softball series.

The only change in the polls is Apex, which was eliminated by Wake Forest in the third round, leaping past 2A finalist South Granville into the No. 2 spot.
