Wednesday, September 1, 2021 | 6:13 PM

Once again this season, teams across the WPIAL can flex their muscles when the Trib 10 power rankings are released each week.

Could a Class 2A school beat most 6A schools? Probably not, but these rankings are more like fantasy booking to determine the elite teams each week in District 7.

In the debut edition, three teams have yet to play a game and one team lost in its Week Zero contest. The other six teams are in search of victory No. 2 heading into Week 1.

Teams are listed with record, final ranking from last season and this week’s oppponent. These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
