Some nice weather later last week and early this week allowed for high school softball teams around the commonwealth a chance to play catch-up with their schedules.

In the process, however, some of the elite teams across Pa. may have wished for more wet weather.

Nearly half of the 6A and 5A field was bumped out of the latest Trib HSSN state softball rankings from last week.

While Northampton, State College, Armstrong and Springfield-Delco dropped out, the door opens for a Top 5 spot for Chambersburg, Hempfield, Trinity and Pittston Area.

Class A through 4A only saw three teams lose their grip, allowing three newbies into the rankings.

With one exception, the top of the rankings remain unchanged as North Penn in 6A, Beaver in 4A, Mid Valley in 3A, Union City in 2A and Tri Valley in A all remain No. 1 in their classification.

The only change came in 5A as West Scranton takes the top spot while Armstrong dropped completely out of the Top 5.
