Peters Township baseball, Beaver softball stay atop Trib 10 power rankings
Friday, May 20, 2022 | 7:06 PM
The 2022 WPIAL baseball and softball playoffs are through the first round and in some classifications, the quarterfinals are in the books as well.
Only three teams between the two power rankings were knocked out of the Trib 10, and two of them call Shaler High School home.
Other than that, not a lot of stunners in the opening round, making for what could be a lot of head-to-head power matchups next week in the district quarterfinals and semifinals.
Thanks to a big Round 2 comeback in their final at-bat, Peters Township is on top of the baseball power rankings for a second straight week while undefeated Beaver continues to be the one and only No. 1 softball team in the Trib 10 this season.
Here are the latest power rankings with records through Friday.
These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
