It was a tough week to be a top-ranked team in the Trib HSSN state softball rankings.

Of the six No. 1 teams from last week, half of them took a tumble and are no longer on top.

While both Shaler in Class 5A and Everett in 2A dropped to No. 2 after suffering their first two losses of the season, North Penn fell out of the 6A rankings completely after a couple of losses last week.

That left only three teams at the head of the rankings from last week still at No. 1 this week: Blue Mountain in 4A, Mid Valley in 3A and Claysburg-Kimmel in A.

Altogether, there were six changes to the top 5 in the six classifications, with two changes coming in 3A and no moves in Class A.
