A week after big changes in the Trib HSSN girls basketball state rankings, all was quiet as the elite throughout Pennsylvania took care of business.

Only a couple of ranked teams lost up and down the six classifications, with most slipping only a notch or two to remain in the top five.

Only Winchester Thurston from the WPIAL in Class 2A was bumped out of the rankings, as it surrendered its spot to defending WPIAL champion Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.

All of the top teams, Bethel Park (6A), Chartiers Valley (5A), North Catholic (4A), Delone Catholic (3A), Bellwood-Antis (2A) and Jenkintown (A) all remain No. 1.
