The stage is set for six new PIAA champions to be crowned this week in Hershey with two boys state title games each on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Kennedy Catholic, Lincoln Park and Math, Civics & Sciences were looking to “repeat” as champions until losses in the quarters and semifinals opened the door for six new golden boys to be crowned in Chocolate Town.

Archbishop Ryan (5A) and Hickory (4A) are the new top-ranked teams in the penultimate HSSN boys basketball state rankings.

They join Archbishop Wood (6A), Loyalsock Township (3A), Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (2A) and Berlin-Brothersvalley (A) as our favorites in the finals.
