Trib 10: After the WPIAL finals, new teams occupy the top spots in the power rankings


Thursday, March 10, 2022 | 11:09 p.m.

Throughout the year, the North Hills men’s and Chartiers Valley girls’ basketball programs have sat atop the weekly Trib 10 power rankings.

However, both teams stumbled in their respective WPIAL Championship matches and had to settle for district money.

Now that both teams have a playoff win under their belts, they are starting to move up the power rankings.

Two undefeated teams in Laurel Highlands boys and Blackhawk girls took first place this week.

Three teams were ousted from Trib 10, replaced by three groovy cats: the Lincoln Park Leopards boys, the Moon Tigers girls and the McKeesport Tigers girls teams.

As we approach the second round and the quarter-finals, many changes are on the horizon.

Here are the latest power rankings. Teams are listed with overall record and standings from last week. These ratings have no rating limit.
