Eleven girls basketball teams saw two dreams come to an end this past week.

First, their goal of winning a PIAA basketball championship, and second, finishing the season in the coveted Top 5 of the Trib HSSN state rankings.

While every class saw at least two teams ousted with the exception of one each form 6A and Class A, the top ranked teams from a week ago did a nice job of winning twice and remaining on top.

Plymouth-Whitemarsh in 6A, Villa Maria Academy in 4A, North Catholic in 3A, Southern Columbia in 2A and Kennedy Catholic in A all remain at the head of the class heading into the state semifinals Friday and Saturday.

Chartiers Valley is back at No. 1 in 5A after beating last week’s top team, Hollidaysburg, in the second round.
