There were big changes in the highest classification after a rough week for ranked teams in the weekly Trib HSSN PIAA baseball rankings.

The five teams were a combined 10-5 last week with each team suffering a loss. Two teams fell down the ladder while the other three were voted off the PIAA Top 5 island.

Besides Bethlehem Liberty falling from the top of 6A, Ligonier Valley in 3A and Wilmington in 2A also fell from the top branch in the ranking tree.

Other significant changes included:

Two teams falling out in 5A and 4A and one each in 3A and 2A. Only Class A had minimal changes from a week ago.

Bethel Park, Penn-Trafford and Ringgold were WPIAL teams that fell out, while Pine-Richland was the only new entry from District 7.
