They have been there for the last four weeks, but Norwin is no longer sitting atop the PBR state rankings. Mt. Lebanon's 5-2 victory over Norwin in the first round of the WPIAL Class AAAA playoffs officially ended Norwin's season. It is the second consecutive year that Norwin has entered the post season undefeated only to lose in the first round.
The new No. 1 is Class AAA Blackhawk. Malvern Prep jumps from No. 6 to No. 2. A number of teams made moves upwards or downwards this week but there is only one new entrant to the poll, Pequea Valley.
Pequea Valley, fresh off its Lancaster-Lebanon League Championship has entered the poll at No. 25. Pequea Valley (19-4) beat Ephrata 8-6, Lampeter-Strasburg 5-4, and No. 23 Lancaster Catholic 4-3 to win the title.
