The end of the regular season is here statewide, and if the district playoffs haven’t started yet, they will this upcoming week.

Only three teams lost their grip on a Top 5 spot in this week’s Trib HSSN state softball rankings. For now, there is time to hop back in; however, once you fall in the postseason, it truly is one and done.

Pittston Area, Montour, Mid-Valley Secondary Center exited in 5A, 4A and 3A, replaced by Shaler, Northwestern Lehigh and North Penn-Liberty.

After wholesale changes a week ago at the top, all of the No. 1 teams remain the same with North Penn in 6A, Armstrong in 5A, Tunkhannock in 4A, Central Cambria in 3A, Neshannock in 2A and Union in A still leading their respective classifications two weeks from the start of the PIAA postseason.
