East and West Teams Battle For Dominance In The Latest Girls Soccer Poll
The eternal battle between east and west continues in the latest coaches and media soccer polls.
In the 4A poll, the east has lost it's dominance over all 5 spots. Natrona cracks the top 5 at the #5 position, knocking out Cheyenne East. The rest of the poll is unchanged with Sheridan, Laramie, Central and Gillette holding down spots 1-4. However there could be some major shuffling in the ranks after this weekend. Big games include #1 Sheridan at #4 Gillette on Friday, in addition to #2 Laramie at #3 Central. Saturday has East at #2 Laramie and #4 Gillette at #5 Natrona, however the Fillies have to contend with cross-town rival Kelly Walsh at home on Thursday.
On a separate note, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America has released its latest rankings. In Region 6 (Alaska, California, Colorado, Idaho, and Wyoming), the Sheridan Lady Broncs (9-0) are ranked #8. The next rankings are scheduled to be released on April 24th.
3A-wise, one east team is ranked in a poll dominated by west teams. That would be Buffalo who is sitting at #3. All the attention this weekend will be focused on #1 ranked Cody as they have a huge test facing them this weekend at home. On Friday, it's #2 vs. #1 as the Fillies host Star Valley. Then on Saturday, #5 Jackson will pay a visit to Cody. Meanwhile Lander holds at #4.
