There was only one team that slipped out of the Trib HSSN state Top 5 from last week as the elite teams across Pa. weathered the storms and took care of business.

The only change was in Class 3A, where defending champion West Catholic dropped and was replace by undefeated Fairview.

While top-ranked North Allegheny in 6A, Cardinal O’Hara in 5A, Bloomsburg in 3A and Mount Carmel in 2A remain at No. 1, there are two new teams at the head of their class.

Villa Maria Academy moved up one spot in 4A while Archbishop Wood dropped to No. 2, and Union knocked off Rochester in a WPIAL section showdown last week, so the Scotties move from No. 5 to No. 1 while the Rams fall from No. 1 to No. 5 after losses to Union and OLSH.
