POWER RANKINGS: Girls Teams Edition #6

No teams moved in or out of the rankings as things remain stagnant heading into the championship season. Downingtown West jumped Hershey, but otherwise, all other teams remain the same.

These Power Rankings are not meant to predict the Outcome of State Meets in November. In fact, some schools on this list aren't even in the same classification or the PIAA at all.

Because Cross Country is so unpredictable and there are so many variables at play, these power rankings are somewhat speculative. They are derived from a combination of performances, analytics, and opinions.
