Top-ranked teams ready for test

Scranton Prep has taken over as the new No. 1 girls team in the Riverfront Sports Super Six Swimming Power Rankings of District 2 teams in time to put both top-ranked teams at the same location Wednesday night.

When the new rankings came out Wednesday afternoon, Scranton Prep replaced Dallas the top team in girls.

Delaware Valley and Scranton Prep are scheduled to go head-to-head in Lackawanna League boys and girls meets Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the University of Scranton.

Dallas, which as the No. 2 team in both boys and girls, swept Wyoming Seminary in a similar Wyoming Valley Conference meet Monday. The four teams went into the team with just one WVC loss combined.
