There was only one change to the latest edition of the 2021 Trib HSSN state baseball rankings in the bottom three classifications, but five teams were out in the top three classifications as the district playoffs begin.

Plymouth-Whitemarsh, Cathedral Prep, Red Land, Warren and Bellefonte were all bounced from the Top 5, opening the door for Spring-Ford, Chichester, Strath Haven, Dallas and Saucon Valley to debut or re-enter into the state elite in 6A, 5A and 4A.

The only other bump was Neumann-Goretti replacing Lake-Lehman in 3A.

There was only one change at No. 1 as Manheim Central moved up a spot to the top in Class 5A, bumping previously top-ranked Franklin Regional to No. 2.

Even though they all weren’t perfect, still at the top of their class for another week are Manheim Township in 6A, East Pennsboro in 4A, Mercyhurst Prep in 3A, Dock Mennonite in 2A and Mount Calvary Christian School in A.
