After games ending Sunday, Feb. 26
The postseason is rapidly approaching and in some cases has already left a big impression, knocking teams from the district tournaments and denying them a shot at state tournament glory. That's the fate that has befallen former No. 3 Central Dauphin, while Chartiers Valley is also out in the WPIAL tourney despite being a top seed, and Malvern Prep couldn't slip past its foes in the Independent Schools Tourney. The field is narrowing, but some of the top teams are still around as well as some underdogs hoping to strike at just the right time.
1. Chester (25-0) Last week: No. 1
2. Neumann-Goretti (22-3) Last week: No. 2
3. New Castle (24-0) Last week: No. 4
