Trib 10: Belle Vernon, Trinity keep top spots in power rankings as playoffs begin

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 | 11:39 PM

The regular season is in the books (woo hoo!) and the WPIAL has started with a unique open tournament. Sure, all were welcomed, but the pretenders have been quickly weeded out.

While there wasn’t a whole lot of movement in the power ranking this week, with the quarterfinals and semifinals straight ahead, the next two weeks will be rocking and rolling with changes.

Belle Vernon boys and Trinity girls hold on to their top spots; however, Mars and Highlands boys along with Mohawk girls slipped out of the top 10, perhaps only temporarily, perhaps for good.

Here are the latest rankings with the overall records and last week’s ranking.
