The top seat turned out to be the hot seat as all but one of the top-ranked teams slipped in this week’s Trib HSSN baseball state rankings.

Only three teams lost their spots in the Top 5: North Allegheny in 6A, Southern Lehigh in 5A and Panther Valley in 3A, replaced by Parkland, North Pocono and Forest Hills.

However, the big changes once again came at the top of the rankings, as five of the six classes have a new No. 1 ranked team.

In 6A, Hazleton fell completely out of the rankings, replaced in the Top 5 by Spring-Ford and replaced at the top by Father Judge.

The other four top teams losing their grip were Central Mountain falling to No. 2 in 5A, Athens Area dropping to No. 5 in 4A, Lancaster Catholic is now No. 3 in 3A and Saegertown in No. 4 in A.

They have been replaced by new top dogs in Chichester in 5A, Cathedral Prep in 4A, Riverside in 3A and Southern Fulton in A.

Serra Catholic in 2A is the only top-ranked team from last week that remains No. 1 as we close in on the start of district playoffs.
