Trib 10: Power rankings shuffled with WPIAL baseball, softball championships on horizon

Friday, May 27, 2022 | 5:42 PM

Three rounds are in the books with one golden game remaining in the 2022 district baseball and softball playoffs.

With plenty of head-to-head battles in the WPIAL quarterfinals and semifinals, change was bound to happen in the Trib 10 power rankings.

Four baseball and three softball teams saw their hopes of a district title dashed, leaving seven teams now preparing to hopefully raise a championship banner entering the late season countdown.

Better late than never is what I’ve been told.

No changes to the top two baseball and top four softball teams as Peters Township is No. 1 in baseball and the only team to own that spot in softball, undefeated Beaver, continues to be No. 1 in the Trib 10.

Here are the latest power rankings with records through Friday.

These rankings have zero classification boundaries. Teams are listed with last week’s ranking.
