There was little movement this week in the Trib 10 rankings with few of the top district teams in action.

Most enjoyed byes or played in one postseason game while a couple of softball teams in the power rankings picked up two playoff wins.

Now the script changes as the district determines its championship finalists this week.

Baseball will have the quarterfinals Monday and semifinals Tuesday while softball will hold its final four Tuesday and Wednesday.

There were two changes as Serra Catholic replaced West Mifflin in baseball and Trinity takes over for West Allegheny in softball.

The top teams remain unchanged as Riverside enjoys a second week at No. 1 in baseball while Shaler remains on top in softball.
