PaPreps Class A Rankings | PaPreps.com | last sorted on 12/16/2013TweetFollow @achiappazzi
Once Clairton fell, like many suspected the Bears would, Class A became a cage match at the top. Multiple teams ascended to the top of the rankings at times this season, and it even took an extra period to decide a winner.
North Catholic prevailed in Class A this weekend with a 15-14 overtime win over Old Forge, and the Trojans finish the season on top of the PaPreps Class A rankings. Old Forge is a worthy No. 2, and the two teams that gave the two finalists their best games - Sto-Rox and Dunmore - slot in behind them.
There's only one other slight adjustment, Clarion swapping spots with Steel-High. The rest of the rankings have been fairly settled, one of the few classes to do so.
They won't be settled when the rankings return in August, though. North Catholic is a strong consideration to be on top against in August, but the rankings will have a decidedly new flavor. Dunmore and Southern Columbia are off to Class AA, while Old Forge and Sto-Rox graduate quite a bit.
