All was quiet on the Western Pa. front this past week as the elite teams either disposed of first-round opponents easily or bypassed the opening round with a bye in the quarterfinals.

For the first time all year, there were zero changes in the Trib 10 power rankings.

Don’t expect the same 20 boys and girls teams to be static next week. With the quarterfinals and semifinals looming, the competition will increase dramatically and the odds are good for some head-to-head playoff contests on the Path to the Pete.

Here are the latest power rankings with overall records and last week’s ranking. These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
