It was another week of lots of wins for the teams in the Trib HSSN girls basketball state rankings.

There were a couple of flip-flops, with three teams losing but remaining in the top five among the elite throughout the Commonwealth.

The only exits were by a pair of Class 2A teams. Mount Carmel and Old Forge dropped a pair of games last week. Taking their place are two teams from the western half of the state: Penns Manor from District 6 and Maplewood from District 10.

There was also a change at the top in 6A as WPIAL frontrunner Bethel Park’s first loss of the season to Mt. Lebanon on a buzzer-beater dropped the Black Hawks down and opened the door for District 1 unbeaten Plymouth-Whitemarsh to ascend to No. 1.

The other top teams, Chartiers Valley (5A), North Catholic (4A), Delone Catholic (3A), Bellwood-Antis (2A) and Jenkintown (A) remained unchanged.
