Some surprising results in the various district playoffs around the state have shaken up this week’s edition of the Trib HSSN state baseball rankings.

With one more state rankings next week before the start of the 2023 PIAA baseball playoffs, 10 teams lost in their district postseason and dropped from the Top 5.

Three of those teams, Athens Area, Archbishop Wood and Montour were ousted in Class 4A, while there were two teams each in 5A and A and only one team was knocked out in 6A, 3A and 2A.

Central Dauphin and Chichester went from top-ranked to not ranked with District 3 and District 1 playoff losses in 6A and 5A.

The other four No. 1 teams remain on top heading into district semifinals or championship games, including Cathedral Prep in 4A, Riverside in 3A, Serra Catholic in 2A and Southern Fulton in A.
