The teams ranked in the latest Trib 10 have proven they can win in the warmth of last week and the chill of this week.

Three teams slipped out of the Trib 10 with Franklin Regional baseball replaced by fellow 5A power South Fayette.

On the softball side, Montour is out, replaced by the team that beat them in Section 3-4A, Chartiers Valley. Norwin is into the softball Trib 10 after beating both Hempfield and North Allegheny last week, knocking the Spartans down seven spots and the Tigers out of the rankings.

At the top, undefeated Shaler takes over at No. 1 after Avonworth lost to Neshannock on Wednesday in softball, while Montour falls to No. 4 and Seneca Valley moves up one spot to take over the top spot in baseball.

Here are the latest power rankings in the 2023 season. Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking. These weekly rankings have zero classification boundaries.
