Old Forge reclaims No. 1 position

The top spot among Small Schools continues to change hands with Old Forge moving back into first for the second time in three weeks when the latest Riverfront Sports Super Six Baseball Power Rankings of District 2 teams were revealed Tuesday afternoon.

Honesdale, which shares the Lackawanna League Division 2 lead with Old Forge, rejoined the Big School rankings in the only other upward movement this week.

North Pocono continues to lead the Big School rankings after winning both its games and securing the Lackawanna Division 1 title.

Hazleton Area, Pittston Area, Abington Heights and Scranton Prep are second through fifth, in order.

Hazleton Area has clinched at least a tie for first in Wyoming Valley Conference Division 1

Pittston Area has a chance to tie for first if the Cougars stumble in their finale.

Scranton Prep won three games to stretch its winning streak to nine.

Honesdale won four times during the week to replace Crestwood in the sixth spot.

Old Forge jumped from third to first among Small Schools after a 2-1 week in which its loss came, 11-8, to ranked Big School Scranton Prep.

Mid Valley and WVC Division 2 champion Holy Redeemer each slipped one spot into second and third.

Lake-Lehman, Riverside and Lackawanna Division 3 champion Elk Lake are still fourth, fifth and sixth.
