Minor Changes in the New WyoPreps Girls Basketball Poll
The latest WyoPreps Coaches and Media Girls Basketball Poll is the final one for two classes, while the top two stayed mostly the same.
In the last 2A rankings, there’s a new team in the top five. Class 3A has two teams’ trade positions, and the other two classes don’t change.
Pine Bluffs re-entered the rankings at the start of the 2A post-season. The Hornets haven’t been in the 2A top five since the preseason poll. They are No. 5 in the final 2A rankings. The top four stayed the same. Rocky Mountain earned ten first-place votes and is at the top for the third straight poll. Moorcroft and Wyoming Indian also received first-place votes. They are second and third, respectively. Sundance holds in the fourth spot.
The top three got a little closer in Class 1A’s final poll, but overall, the top five didn’t change. Upton got six first-place votes, and the Bobcats stayed atop the rankings where they’ve been since the third poll of the season. Only three points back are the Southeast Cyclones. They received four first-place votes. Cokeville was third, but they got a little closer to Southeast. Burlington and Little Snake River rounded out the top five.
The bottom of the 3A poll had a pair of team’s trade spots in the only difference from last week. Newcastle is still No. 1 and a unanimous choice again. The Dogies earned all 17 first-place votes. Douglas was a near-unanimous pick for second, while Lander holds in the No. 3 spot. Lyman’s victory over Pinedale last week, pushed the Eagles up to fourth, and the Wranglers down to fifth.
Class 4A remained the same for the third consecutive poll. Cheyenne East received all 18 first-place votes. The Thunderbirds look poised to go wire-to-wire at the top of the big-school division. Cody is second, followed by Thunder Basin, then Laramie, and Rock Springs in the top five.
