Trib HSSN Soccer State Rankings for August 30, 2022


Tuesday, August 30, 2022 | 19:14

Another season of high school football is upon us as we present the first edition of the 2022 Trib HSSN PIAA Weekly State Rankings.

We finished 2021 with six champions crowned at Hershey, an unprecedented four WPIAL teams winning state gold.

Mt. Lebanon (6A), Penn-Trafford (5A), Aliquippa (4A) and Central Valley (3A) all brought gold to District 7 from Hersheypark Stadium. For the CV Warriors, it was their second consecutive PIAA title.

Southern Columbia from District 4 and Bishop Guilfoyle from District 6 joined those four in the winner’s circle last fall.

In the inaugural edition of the state rankings, only Mt. Lebanon did not make the Top 5 as the Blue Devils’ 15-game winning streak ended with a loss to Gateway in week zero.

Aliquippa and Southern Columbia are the only two defending champions to start this season at No. 1 in their rankings.

Here are the top HSSN rankings in each of the six rankings. Teams are listed with the record, last week’s standings, and district.
