An old song had lyrics that proclaimed “one is the loneliest number.” That is true if you are the one team that got bumped in each class from the Trib HSSN state rankings.

Four teams in each classification won their second-round PIAA playoff game last week and advanced to what they hope is a state quarterfinals game if the playoffs resume.

Of the six teams that lost and saw their season end in Round 2, three were from District 10, two from District 1 and one from District 3.

All of the top-ranked teams survived and advanced on the Road to Hershey. They are North Allegheny, Chartiers Valley, North Catholic, Delone Catholic, Linden Hall and Jenkintown.
