A change at the top in Class 5A kept District 12 from claiming the top spot in the three highest classifications for a second straight week.

Defending PIAA champion Archbishop Wood fell from No. 1 to No. 3 in 5A, opening the door for two western powers to slip by them as Oakland Catholic from the WPIAL and Cathedral Prep from District 10 are now No. 1 and 2.

The other five classifications have the same team on top, including Cardinal O’Hara in 6A, Lansdale Catholic in 4A, Lancaster Catholic in 3A, Kennedy Catholic in 2A and Union in A.

Four teams fell out of the state top 5, including two teams from 3A. Forest Hills and Columbia dropped out while Westmont-Hilltop and Palmerton filled those vacancies.
