Trib 10: Power rankings get facelift on eve of WPIAL playoffs
Wednesday, February 16, 2022 | 9:32 PM
The regular season is over and now the curtain is about to rise on the district postseason.
The 20 teams power ranked below will all take different journeys on the Path to the Pete, but their goal is the same: to raise WPIAL gold and be top-ranked in the Trib 10 rankings in early March.
As the regular season came to an end, there was some shuffling in the power rankings, with two boys and three girls teams losing their spot in the Trib 10 prior to the district postseason.
The two teams at the top didn’t change as North Hills remains perfect at No. 1 in the boys rankings while Chartiers Valley sits atop the girls rankings for a third consecutive week.
Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking. These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
