The wild winds of change to the HSSN state softball rankings through April have settled into the calm seas of May, at least for this week.

There was only one change to the top 30 teams across Pennsylvania from last week as one WPIAL team took the place of another when Mt. Pleasant bumped Southmoreland out of the Class 3A top 5 … for now. Those two teams have a pair of head-to-head meetings coming up.

There also was only one change at the top. After DuBois Central Catholic lost to DuBois, West Greene takes over as No. 1 in Class A.

Bethel Park in 6A, Twin Valley in 5A, Erie Villa Maria Academy in 4A, Bald Eagle in 3A and Wilmington in 2A all held on to the top spot in their classification.
