There were big changes to the state’s highest classification in the Trib HSSN girls basketball state rankings after the first full week in January.

Three teams, including No. 1 Upper Dublin, exited the Class 6A rankings. The shakeup centered around District 1, where two teams were bumped, and two D-1 teams debuted.

After the 6A shake-up, the WPIAL’s Bethel Park is the new No. 1.

Chartiers Valley (5A), North Catholic (4A), Delone Catholic (3A), Bellwood-Antis (2A) and Jenkintown (A) all remain No. 1 in their respective classifications.

In all, eight teams were ousted from the rankings.

The only classification with no change was Class A.
