New Volleyball Rankings Sees Very Little Change
Not much movement in the latest WyoPreps Coaches and Media Volleyball Poll that was released on Thursday.
There is a shift of the top five teams in each class, but overall, only one new team came into the rankings, and that is in Class 1A.
Cokeville sits atop the 1A Poll with six of the 11 first-place votes. The Panthers edged out the Kaycee Buckaroos, who are only three points back in the balloting. Meeteetse climbs another spot and moves into third. Upton falls a position to No. 4. The new team is H.E.M. The Miners are back in fifth after being out of the top five a week ago. Southeast drops out but was one of five teams that earned votes.
In 2A, the top three are the same. Sundance, Moorcroft, and Riverside remain first through third. Tongue River slides up one spot into fourth past their county rival Big Horn, who falls to No. 5.
The classification with the most voter indecisiveness is Class 3A. Votes came in for 12 teams this week. Rawlins stays No. 1 and broke their tie for first from last week with Pinedale. Both schools earned six first-place votes. The margin is three points in the voting. The Wranglers are now second. Mountain View holds third but by a slim three-points over No. 4 Lyman. Douglas drops one spot to fifth. Seven more schools received at least one vote this week.
Class 4A has the only unanimous No. 1 team and that is Laramie. The Lady Plainsmen are the last undefeated team in the state and received all 11 first-place votes. Thunder Basin and Kelly Walsh hold their spots of second and third, respectively. Star Valley moves up one position to No. 4. Cheyenne East slides down one spot to five. Only one other team, Cody, received any votes this week.
