There were no changes at the top of the first Trib HSSN girls basketball state rankings of 2020.

Upper Dublin (Class 6A), Chartiers Valley (5A), North Catholic (4A), Delone Catholic (3A), Bellwood-Antis (2A) and Jenkintown (A) remain No. 1 as teams return to section/district play.

Six teams were not as fortunate as they lost their seats at the big-kids table.

The WPIAL’s Central Valley and West Greene are new entrants into the rankings, but the biggest splash was made by Loyalsock Township as it debuts at No. 3 in Class 3A.

Here is the latest PIAA Top Five in each of the six classifications through Sunday, Jan. 5. The team’s district is the number in parenthesis after their record followed by the teams ranking from last week.
