(Top 20 teams qualify for postseason)
Currently No. 1: Central Dauphin
YAIAA contenders: 2. Dover, 6. Dallastown, 8. Red Lion, 17. New Oxford
Rapid reaction: Dover sat atop last week's initial rankings and was still unbeaten at the time of these ratings' release. The Eagles even earned a signature win on Friday, 47-44, in overtime at Susquehannock, which was ranked second in Class AAA last week. As impressive as that win is, chances are Dover wasn't helped by the stern competition being a class size too small.
(Top 18 teams qualify for postseason)
Currently No. 1: Palmyra
YAIAA contenders: 2. West York, 5. Susquehannock, 12. York Suburban, 13. Eastern York
Rapid reaction: While the Warriors dipped slightly, West York emerged in the second spot and has been playing like one of the district's top teams.
(Top 10 teams qualify for postseason)
Currently No. 1: York Catholic
YAIAA contenders: 2. Delone Catholic, 3. Biglerville, 7. Hanover
Rapid reaction: The Fighting Irish suffered their first loss -- to Delone Catholic -- but it only narrowed the gap rather than allowing the Squirettes to overtake them for the No. 1 ranking.
(Top 12 teams qualify for postseason)
Currently No. 1: Harrisburg Christian
Area contenders: 5. Christian School of York
Rapid reaction: A week after being in the top 12, New Hope fell to 13th.
