Some classes underwent major changes while others are virtually the same in the latest Trib HSSN baseball rankings as we hit the midway point of the PIAA postseason.

Class 4A and 2A saw three district champions ousted from the rankings while only one change was made in 5A and A.

Here is the district scorecard heading into the state final four on Monday:

WPIAL and District 3 lead the way with four teams remaining. Districts 1, 6, 9 and 12 each have three teams left. Districts 2, 5, 10 and 11 have one team still alive for the gold. The lights are out on Districts 4 and 8.

As far as No. 1 is concerned in the state baseball rankings, four teams have survived and remain on top of their classification: Father Judge in 6A, Riverside in 3A, Bald Eagle in 2A and Southern Fulton in A.

Strath Haven in 5A and Archbishop Wood in 4A move up the ladder to the top after state playoff losses by Central Mountain (5A) and Cathedral Prep (4A).
