The jamborees had some say as to which teams are ranked in the first top 5 coaches and media polls.

4A Boys:

After missing out on the state tournament for the last 3 years, Gillette made an opening weekend statement, going 3-0 at the Casper Jamboree, and did not give up a goal. The Camels start the season ranked #1. East also did not allow a ball into the net, but managed to only get 1 win and 2 ties, so the Thunderbirds check in at #2. One vote separated each spot from #3 to #5. Sheridan, Central and Kelly Walsh occupy those spots, while Riverton missed out by 1 vote. The big game this weekend has the #4 Indians visiting #2 East on Friday.

3A Boys:

Defending champ Jackson has their top 2 offensive threats back and looked good in Casper this past weekend. The Broncs grab all, but 1 first place vote to lay claim to #1. Lander got that other vote, after going 3-0 at the Worland Jamboree and the Tigers are #2. The top 2 teams meet in an early season clash this Friday at Lander, with the winner hoping to claim a unanimous #1 ranking next week. Meanwhile, Buffalo and Worland comprise the middle of the rankings at #3 and #4, and Pinedale starts the season ranked #5 after a 2-0 weekend. The Wranglers had their 3rd game in Worland this past weekend, called due to bad weather, but did enough to satisfy the voters for now.

4A Girls:

Ten of 12 teams played on opening weekend, and only 1 went undefeated. That was Natrona, who went 2-0 with 1 tie at the Casper Jamboree. The teams they played was what impressed the voters, so the Fillies get the #1 ranking to start the season. Gillette is #2. Although they went 0-2 to start the season, both of Central's losses were against good Colorado competition. We'll find out if they are deserving of their ranking this Friday, when they visit #4 East. Finally Sheridan takes the #5 ranking, by 1 vote ahead of Green River. The Lady Wolves will get their chance to prove themselves this weekend, when they host the #1 Natrona on Friday, to start conference play. All 4A girls teams received at least 1 vote. On a side note, Laramie starts their season on Friday and their first 3 games take them through the meat grinder...at #2 Gillette Friday, at #5 Sheridan on Saturday, and then at #1 Natrona on Tuesday.

3A Girls:

Fresh off of their first title in school history, the Fillies are the #1 ranked team, but Jackson is not far behind them at #2, as the Lady Broncs aim to reclaim the trophy they held for 4 years prior. Lander comes in at #3 and host Jackson this Friday, which should make for a good double-header with the boys. Star Valley and Powell, check in at #4 and #5. Buffalo missed out by 1 vote, but have a chance to stake their claim, when they host Powell on Friday, and visit Cody on Saturday.
