The Post-Gazette ran its girls preview last week. The boys preview with WPIAL and City League rankings will be in Friday's Varsity Xtra section. For now, take a look at the pennlive.com/patriot-news preseason state boys rankings.

The highest ranked WPIAL teams are Beaver Falls and Lincoln Park, who are both ranked No. 2 in their respective classifications.
