Three was a not-so-lucky number for teams ranked in last week’s Trib HSSN state softball rankings.

Three teams dropped out of the rankings and three top-ranked teams dropped out of the No. 1 spot.

Dropping out of the Top 5 on the eve of the district playoffs were Governor Mifflin in 6A, East Pennsboro in 4A and Wilmington in 2A, replaced by Central Dauphin, Cathedral Prep and Sharpsville.

New teams at No. 1 include Tunkhannock replacing fellow District 2 power Valley View in 4A, Central Cambria taking over for Littlestown in 3A and Union replacing DuBois Central Catholic in A.

The other top-ranked teams in each class remained the same as last week with North Penn in 6A, Armstrong in 5A and Neshannock in 2A.
