New Teams: Grove City, Cedar Cliff
Dropped out: Penn-Trafford (5-2, lost to Franklin Regional 21-16), Upper Dublin (5-1, lost to Plymouth Whitemarsh 24-21)
Quick take: We made a mistake in removing Archbishop Wood from the No. 1 slot. It's not that Upper St. Clair lost, but it's the scoring margin that really caught our eye. West Allegheny is once again among the top teams in their class in the WPIAL. Grove City and Cedar Cliff both enter our top ten for the first time this year. Cedar Cliff would've been included earlier if they had held on to defeat Bishop McDevitt. We still have our eyes on Manheim Central out of District 3.
