While there were 10 baseball teams that lost in their district playoffs and fell from the PIAA rankings, only six softball teams lost their hold on a Top 5 spot in this week’s Trib HSSN state softball rankings.

The six softball teams that exited included two teams from the WPIAL and a pair from District 3.

One of those teams, Central Cambria, had been No. 1 in Class 3A. It has been replaced by District 7 finalist Avonworth.

The rest of the No. 1 teams remain the same with North Penn in 6A, Armstrong in 5A, Tunkhannock in 4A, Neshannock in 2A and Union in A still leading their respective classifications one week from the start of the PIAA postseason.
