Following a week of many changes, the HSSN state rankings have settled into a nice groove in the final week of April.

Last week was likes a Chutes and Ladder game with teams sliding out of the rankings and others climbing up into the state Top 5.

This past week, things calmed down as only three teams — Penn Manor, Stroudsburg and Nazareth Academy — didn’t have a Top 5 chair when the music stopped.

Replacing those three were Hatboro-Horsham and Northampton in 6A and Beaver in 4A.

Bethel Park in 6A, Erie Villa Maria Academy in 4A, Bald Eagle in 3A, Wilmington in 2A and DuBois Central Catholic in Class A all held on to the top spot in their classification. The only change at No. 1 was Twin Valley replacing Abington Heights in Class 5A.

Here is the latest edition of the HSSN state softball rankings. Teams are listed with record, district and last week’s ranking.
