If they haven’t already, the districts that make up the PIAA are holding their softball playoffs to determine district crowns and state softball qualifiers.

Now, one misstep could cost teams the season.

Five teams suffered losses that dropped them from this week’s Trib HSSN state softball rankings with time running out for them to get back in.

A pair of top-ranked teams also suffered defeat and slipped from No. 1.

In Class 3A, Karns City lost twice and dropped to No. 5 while in Class A, Tri-Valley lost once and fell one to No. 2.

The other four No. 1 teams remained the same with Pennsbury, 6A, West Scranton, 5A, Beaver, 4A and Frazier, 2A still at the top of the mountain in their respective classes.
