We have seen in the past, complete turmoil takes over this time of year when it comes to the state rankings with so many head-to-head clashes.

For the most part, the latest Trib HSSN rankings held up.

Nine teams dropped out after losses in the PIAA second round and quarterfinals, but no classification had more than two teams ousted.

District 7 in the west and District 12 in the east continued to dominate, with 18 of the 30 spots owned by those two districts.

Laurel Highlands in 5A and Math, Civics and Sciences in 3A were knocked out of the state playoffs and went from No. 1 to out of the rankings.

Roman Catholic in 6A, Quaker Valley in 4A, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in 2A and Bishop Canevin in Class A all remain on top in their class heading into the state semifinals.
