A new No. 1 and three new teams in the boys’ rankings highlight the latest WyoPreps Coaches and Media Basketball Polls. Three of the four boys’ divisions saw a change. The girls’ poll shuffled teams around in all four classes, but no new teams entered the rankings.

Both Cokeville and Saratoga garnered a pair of first-place votes. Cokeville was second, and Saratoga was third. Farson-Eden held the fourth position for the seventh straight ranking.

In Class 4A, Star Valley debuted in the top five at No. 5. The Braves have rattled off nine straight victories. Cheyenne Central kept the top spot. The Indians were a near-unanimous choice with all but one first-place vote. Laramie maintained second and got the other first-place vote.
