Wyoming High School Girls Basketball Rankings: Feb. 13, 2014
Two new #1’s are in the latest coaches/media polls, as teams are preparing for the stretch run.
Sheridan is the unanimous #1 in 4A. The Lady Broncs and #3 Gillette play at home this weekend vs. Cheyenne South and Laramie. Natrona holds at #2, and plays home games vs. Green River and Evanston. East is still #4 heading into their rivalry game vs. Central, while Rock Springs is in at #5, after winning at former #5 Evanston last week.
One of the 2 new #1’s is in the 3A ranks. Torrington has climbed to the top, but the trail for the Lady TrailBlazers this weekend is a very dangerous one. On Saturday, they will visit new #5 Worland, who maybe one of the hottest teams in the state right now. Another big 3A east battle is on Friday, when #2 Douglas visits #3 Rawlins. Both teams hit a bump in the road last week, making this game even bigger. Powell is up to #4, and looks to avenge their only conference loss, when Mountain View visits this weekend.
Nothing changed in the 2A poll. Tongue River is the unanimous #1, followed by Kemmerer, Lovell, Southeast and Sundance. Lovell and Southeast will play in an interesting cross-state battle on Saturday. They tried to do this last year, in Casper, but a snowstorm ruined those plans. They tried to play it in the Oil City again, but a gym is not available. So the Lady Bulldogs will make the long road trip, but the Lady Cyclones managed to move the game over to Eastern Wyoming College.
The other new #1, is actually tied with the team that has had the spot to themselves for most of the season. Upton shared top honors with Lingle-Ft. Laramie. Elsewhwere, Little Snake River hold at #3, while Burlington moves ahead of Cokeville for #4, by 1 vote. LSR is scheduled to play at Cokeville, this Friday.
Record updates: The WHSAA announced that Big Piney and Cokeville were given wins via forfeit, vs. Thermopolis and H.E.M. respectively. Both games had to be called off due to the snowstorm that hit the west side of the state, and there will be no makeup of those games.
