The news isn’t great for Delco teams in the District One Class AAA playoff picture, with just three teams above the cut line through the latest rankings, which factor in games through Oct. 6.
As of the latest power rankings, only Ridley (ranked 16th), Haverford (19th) and Strath Haven (20th) would make the field. The plus side is that all three seem to be well entrenched above the cutline. Seeds five through 16 would host opening-round games.
Still fighting for inclusion in the 28-team field is Radnor in 30th place and Garnet Valley in 34th.
Delco Christian appears secure in the 12-team Class AA field, ranked eighth. That placement would earn the Knights a first-round playoff game, with the winner to face the top seed. Chichester’s position in 10th is more tenuous.
