The favorites most of the year were still at the top of the final 1A and 2A rankings in the latest WyoPreps Coaches and Media Polls. Cokeville and Tongue River are No. 1 in the girls’ polls, and Upton and Tongue River were first in the boys’ rankings, as the small schools head to postseason play on Thursday.

The Last Polls for Class 1A and 2A Teams in Wyoming High School Basketball

Class 1A girls did not change in the final poll. The Cokeville Panthers received all but one first-place vote. They were the No. 1 ranked team all season long. Upton snagged the other first-place ballot and remained second. Burlington was third, and then Little Snake River and Southeast stayed fourth and fifth, respectively.

In 2A, the only difference was a tie for third. Despite a conference loss last weekend, the Tongue River Eagles kept the top spot with eight of the 15 first-place votes. The Eagles were the top-ranked team for all but one week this season. Wyoming Indian earned six first-place votes and held second. Lingle-Ft. Laramie and Sundance tied for No. 3 in the final rankings. The Bulldogs knocked off the Eagles by one last week. That moved them into the tie with the Doggers. Wind River held onto fifth before the regional tournament, despite a loss to end conference play last week.

The Upton Bobcats went wire-to-wire as the No. 1 team in 1A boys. They also just finished their sixth straight season with an undefeated record at home. Cokeville also stayed second. The one change was that Farson-Eden climbed up to third after their win over Saratoga last weekend. That meant the Panthers dropped to fourth. Meeteetse held onto the fifth spot.

Tongue River picked up all but one first-place vote in the 2A boys’ rankings. The Eagles were followed by Wright, who moved up one spot. Wyoming Indian fell back to third, and the Chiefs were only three points ahead of Lingle-Ft. Laramie in the voting. The Doggers remained fourth. Big Horn returned to the top five in fifth.

The Class 3A and 4A schools saw one change at the top of the polls before the last week of the regular season.

The Douglas Bearcats moved back to the top spot in 3A boys. They received 11 of the 18 first-place votes. It’s the first time Douglas has been atop the rankings since mid-January. Despite being the only undefeated boys’ team in the state, Powell fell to second. The Panthers still earned seven first-place votes. The rest of the top five was the same. Lovell was third, followed by Pinedale and Buffalo.

In 4A boys, the top three did not change, but Sheridan returned to the poll for the first time in a couple of weeks. Cheyenne Central kept the No. 1 ranking with 14 of the 22 first-place votes. Laramie held onto second and garnered seven first-place votes. Cheyenne East got all but three votes for third. The Broncs picked up one first-place vote and jumped back in at No. 4. That pushed Star Valley down to fifth.

For the girls, two teams swapped spots in the 3A poll. Douglas was a unanimous choice for No. 1. Buffalo remained second, and Pinedale was third. Mountain View’s win at Powell last weekend helped the Buffalos climb to fourth. The Panthers fell back to fifth.

For 4A girls, the one change was at the bottom. Cheyenne East got 14 of the 20 first-place votes. Cody earned the other six first-place tallies. Campbell County kept the No. 3 ranking, and Sheridan stayed fourth. Cheyenne Central replaced Laramie at fifth in the poll.
