Girls Basketball Rankings: January 31
There’s a new #1 in one class while the other three classes booted out their #5 teams from a week ago.
Sheridan is back on top of the 4A girls basketball poll. After beating last week’s #1 East in Cheyenne, the Lady Broncs are back at #1. The Lady Thunderbirds fell to second. Natrona remains third despite getting 2 more first place votes that East. Gillette falls to fourth and Laramie remains fifth. Big games on the 4A docket have #1 sheridan at #4 Gillette Friday and #2 East at #5 Laramie Saturday.
1) Sheridan 2) East 3) Natrona 4) Gillette 5) Laramie
3A saw a shake up with Lyman’s upset of Star Valley last week. Douglas continues to dominate the division, however. The unbeaten Lady Bearcats took all 24 of the #1 ballots. Rawlins is now second with Lyman third. Star Valley falls to forth while Newcastle sneaks into the top five. The Lady Dogies have put together a 10 and 5 overall mark and are 5 and 2 in the East conference. They’ll get a good test right out of the gate with that ranking when they go to #2 Rawlins Saturday.
1) Douglas 2) Rawlins 3) Lyman 4) Star Valley 5) Newcastle
