There were big changes to the weekly Trib HSSN PIAA baseball rankings with 10 teams falling out of the Top 5 from a week ago.

The biggest change came in Class 3A where four teams had rough weeks and were bumped out of our pre-holiday rankings.

The WPIAL had one team ousted in Class 2A, Neshannock, but three district teams joined the statewide limelight this week — Bethel Park in 6A, Serra Catholic in 2A and California in A are now ranked among the best in the state.

All of the top-ranked teams remain intact with one big exception. Three losses dropped the top-ranked team in Class 6A from No. 1 to completely out of the Top 5.

Here is this week’s Trib HSSN PIAA baseball Top 5 in each of the six classifications through Friday’s games.
