Not Much is New in the Fourth WyoPreps Girls Basketball Rankings
There is only a slight difference in the new WyoPreps Coaches and Media Girls Basketball Poll.
The fourth poll of the season has one change from the third poll, which was just before Christmas. That little switch is in Class 4A. The other three divisions remain the same.
Cheyenne East is a unanimous choice for the top spot in 4A. The Thunderbirds received all 18 first-place votes in the poll. The change sees the next two teams in a tie for second. That would be Cody and Natrona County, who got the same votes for second, third, and fourth place in the rankings. Thunder Basin and Sheridan stayed at four and five, respectively. Four more teams received multiple votes in the new rankings.
Class 3A sees Douglas at No. 1 for the second straight poll. The Bearcats earned 12 of the 18 votes for the top spot. Lyman picked up the other six votes for first and they remain second. Mountain View, Pinedale, and Lander round out the top five. Four other teams picked up multiple votes.
Three-time defending champion Wyoming Indian remains atop Class 2A. The Lady Chiefs received 10 of the 11 first-place votes. Moorcroft was the team that picked up the one other vote for the top spot. The Wolves are second in the poll. Rocky Mountain holds onto the third position, but the Lady Grizz are only three points ahead of Sundance, who ranks fourth. Glenrock holds at No. 5.
In 1A, it’s the same top five, but the voting pulled a few schools closer to another. Upton earned seven of the 12 votes for No. 1. The Bobcats hold the top spot for the second consecutive set of rankings. Cokeville is second, but only six points in the balloting in front of Southeast. The Cyclones are third. Little Snake River has the same fate, just three points in front of Burlington in the voting. Those two are still fourth and fifth in the poll.
