Unbeatens Abington Heights and Scranton Prep remain the No. 1 teams.

Abington Heights is again followed by No. 2 West Scranton among Big Schools.

The entire Small School rankings remain the same with Scranton Prep, Dallas, Wyoming Area, Holy Redeemer and Tunkhannock, in order, following Wyoming Seminary.

Delaware Valley and Wallenpaupack each moved up two spots to third and fourth.
