Trib 10: WPIAL baseball, softball champions rise in weekly power rankings
Friday, June 2, 2023 | 12:58 PM
Perfection not only brings the gold, it brings a room with a powerful view as we present the district championship edition of the Trib 10.
However, there was plenty of shifting up and down among the Trib 10 teams as the WPIAL champions take the top six spots in the rankings.
Kudos to the softball golden girls, including back-to-back champions Avonworth in 3A, Neshannock in 2A and Union in A. Also Hempfield in 6A, Trinity in 5A and Belle Vernon in 4A were all district champs that were not bracket top seeds.
The Trib 10 top spots go to the two remaining district teams that haven’t lost this spring, Riverside in baseball and Neshannock in softball.
Here are the latest power rankings in the 2023 season. The current overall record is followed by the team’s ranking last week.
These weekly rankings have zero classification boundaries.
