Unbeaten Tigers, Comets move up

Two unbeaten boys teams moved up and one new team each joined in the boys and girls listings for the latest Riverfront Super Six Swimming Power Rankings of District 2 teams.

Tunkhannock and Abington Heights gained ground in the boys rankings. Fellow unbeaten Holy Redeemer joined the boys rankings while Elk Lake is new on the girls side.

Abington Heights won twice to move from sixth to fifth and Holy Redeemer did the same to join the rankings.
