Aliquippa remains atop Trib 10 power rankings while 3 new teams enter

Wednesday, September 7, 2022 | 3:34 PM

A competitive Week 1 led to three changes from the debut Trib 10 of the 2022 season last week.

All around the district, most games were close, including five contests that went beyond regulation and three matchups that went to double overtime.

Home losses by Penn-Trafford and Seneca Valley and a road loss by Avonworth bounced those three teams from the power rankings, opening the door for a 6A, 5A and 4A team to enter the Trib 10.

With a season-opening victory, Aliquippa remains atop this week’s rankings.

These rankings have zero classification boundaries.

Here are the latest Trib 10 power rankings:
