More Shuffling in the New WyoPreps Girls Basketball Rankings
There is at least one change in all four classes of the third edition of the WyoPreps Coaches and Media Girls Basketball Poll.
The four No. 1 ranked teams of Thunder Basin, Douglas, Moorcroft, and Kaycee kept their position in the most recent rankings. There are three new teams in this poll.
Class 2A features the most change despite the top two teams remaining the same. The Moorcroft Wolves stay on top but are just six points in the voting ahead of second-ranked Rocky Mountain. Both teams received first-place votes, but Moorcroft had two more than the Grizzlies. Tongue River jumps from a tie for fifth into the No. 3 position. The Eagles are followed by two new teams. Big Piney and Riverside make their debut in this season’s top-five in fourth and fifth, respectively. Four other teams received votes, which included three teams that dropped out of the poll.
The other division with a newly ranked team is in Class 4A. The Bolts were one vote shy of being a unanimous No. 1. Natrona County moved up two spots to second, while Cheyenne Central held in third. Cheyenne East falls two positions to fourth. Green River is in the top five at No. 5, their first ranking of the season. Four more teams earned at least one vote in the 4A girls’ poll.
In 3A, Douglas remains on top and unanimously. The Bearcats garnered all 18 first-place votes in the balloting. The other four teams are the same, but they shuffled around. Mountain View moved back into the second spot. Worland’s 3-0 start to their season vaults the Warriors to No. 3. A loss dropped Lyman down to fourth and that pushed Lander down a spot to No. 5. Three other schools received a vote this week.
Class 1A is led by the Kaycee Buckaroos. They earned five first-place votes and hold onto the top position. Cokeville received three first-place nods, and the Panthers stay at No. 2. Southeast and Encampment both moved up one spot. The Cyclones are third followed by the Tigers in fourth. Upton falls two positions to No. 5. Two more teams picked up votes, but two teams that were part of the top five in the previous poll did not receive a vote.
