The Road to Hershey has shuffled the deck with three rounds in the book and two more coming this week.

Four of the six top-ranked teams in the Trib HSSN girls basketball state rankings are still alive for a PIAA title.

Two others saw their golden dreams come to an end as both Lancaster Catholic in Class 4A and St. Basil Academy in 3A lost for the first time all year in the state quarterfinals.

Going into the final week of the high school basketball season in Pennsylvania, the WPIAL has four teams still alive, including two in Class 5A. Three of those teams are at the head of their class with Peters Township in 6A, Chartiers Valley in 5A and North Catholic in 4A.
