Only two teams dropped out of the Trib HSSN state softball rankings from last week as we closed out the regular season and geared up for the district playoffs.

Central Columbia in 3A and Mount Union in 2A were bumped from the Top 5 in their respective classifications, replaced by Cambria Heights in 3A and Elk Lake in 2A.

However, there were still plenty of changes, especially at the top of the rankings.

Twin Valley in 5A, Erie Villa Maria Academy in 4A and Bald Eagle in 3A all lost their spot at No. 1, each dropping one or two spots to remain in the rankings.

The new top-ranked teams are Abington Heights in 5A, Elizabeth Forward in 4A and Holy Redeemer in 3A.

They join Bethel Park in 6A, Marion Center in 2A and West Greene in A as No. 1 teams three weeks before the state playoffs.
