More Changes at the top of the WyoPreps Coaches and Media Football Poll
For the second straight week, there are two No. 1 ranked teams in the latest WyoPreps Coaches and Media Football Poll publicized on Wednesday.
Sheridan and Lyman take over as new top-ranked teams in Class 4A and 2A, respectively.
There are two new teams to the poll, and each class has some shifting in the top five.
After their victory last Friday night over previously top-rated Rock Springs, the Sheridan Broncs grab the top spot in 4A. The Broncs earned 16 of the 18 first-place votes. The Tigers drop only to second and still received a pair of votes for No. 1. The teams in the three, four, and five positions remain the same. It’s Thunder Basin, Cheyenne East, and Natrona County.
Defending 2A champion Lyman is on top of the rankings for the first time this season. The Eagles received one fewer first-place vote than Wheatland, but 11 second-place votes pushed Lyman to the top. The Eagles are only nine points in the voting ahead of Wheatland, who falls to second. The Bulldogs got nine first-place votes to the eight for Lyman. Torrington moved up one to third. The Trailblazers also received three first-place votes. Lovell dropped one spot to fourth. There’s a tie for fifth in Class 2A. Upton-Sundance remains in that spot, but they are joined this week by the Cokeville Panthers, who are new to the poll for the first time this season.
Cody remains No. 1 in Class 3A. The Broncs picked up 16 of the 17 votes for the top position. The rest of the top five traded spots. Powell moved up one to second. The Panthers got the other vote for No. 1 after their shutout of Douglas last Friday night. That means Jackson dropped to third. Star Valley’s giant 67-point win at Rawlins, combined with the Bearcats loss, has the Braves in fourth, and Douglas fell to fifth.
The top four remain the same in Class 1A-9 Man. Shoshoni is first. The Wranglers received 12 first-place votes. They are followed by Pine Bluffs at No. 1. Lusk holds steady in third, and Wind River is still fourth. Rocky Mountain is back in the top five at No. 5.
The 6-man division has the same five teams as last week, they are just in a new order. The Meeteetse Longhorns are first with 11 votes for the top spot. Little Snake River has climbed to second. The Rattlers earned three votes for No. 1. Encampment moved up two spots to third. Farson-Eden’s loss to the Tigers last weekend pushed them down to fourth. Dubois fell one to fifth.
