The 2015 soccer season has reached that point where the coaches/media rankings no longer matter, and teams are out to prove which ones really are deserving of being #1.

All signs at the end of the regular season point towards Natrona in 4A Boys. The Mustangs are the unanimous #1, and the West #1 seed heading into the regional tournament. Sheridan is the unanimous #2, and the East #1 seed heading into the regional tournament. After that, Central holds at the #3 spot, while Riverton and Gillette tie for the #4 ranking. The Wolverines stumbled a bit at the end of the regular season, but they already had the #2 west seed locked up, so as long as they can regroup at the regional tournament, they should fine.

There's no change in the final 3A Boys rankings. Jackson is the unanimous #1, and they are followed by Torrington, Lander, Worland and Buffalo. Only the third ranked Tigers have to play this weekend, to qualify for the state tournament.

The final 4A girls rankings show how dominant the East Conference has been all season. Although Green River finishes the regular season at #5, they never climbed higher then that. The Lady Wolves and the west face a tough task at the state tournament, because the East has swept the West in the first round, in each of the past 5 years. Cheyenne East is back on top of the rankings at #1, while Sheridan falls a spot to #2, followed up by Gillette and Laramie at #3 and #4.

Like the 3A Boys, the final 3A Girls rankings have no change as well. 1-5 still have Jackson, Cody, Star Valley, Worland and Buffalo in the order. The 4th ranked Lady Warriors are the one ranked team that has to play in the state qualifying game this weekend.

Regional Rankings: The National Soccer Coaches Association of America has released its latest rankings for the Spring 2015 season. No Wyoming team were ranked nationally, but the Cheyenne East girls were ranked #10 in Region 5, which consists of teams from Wyoming, Colorado, California and Alaska.
