May Day! Despite the cold and wet weather that plagued the state this past week, there were a lot of changes to the weekly Trib HSSN baseball state rankings.

Only three teams lost their spots in the Top 5 as Methacton, Shaler and Wilmington dropped, replaced by North Penn, Chichester and McConnellsburg in 6A, 5A and 2A.

The big changes came at the top of the rankings, as half of the six classes have new top-ranked teams.

In 5A, Central Mountain takes over for Strath Haven at No. 1. In 4A, undefeated Athens bumps West Mifflin from the top spot. Southern Fulton falls to No. 2 as Saegertown is now on top in Class A.

The other three classifications have no change at the top with Hazleton in 6A, Lancaster Catholic in 3A and Serra Catholic in 2A all remaining No. 1.
