Second WyoPreps Volleyball Poll Features Quite a Bit of Movement
The four early season favorites kept the top spot in the latest WyoPreps Coaches and Media Volleyball Poll released on Thursday.
Kelly Walsh, Lyman, Big Horn, and Kaycee retained the No. 1 ranking for another week.
Three new teams make their debut in the poll, and there were changes across all four classifications.
Class 2A has the most movement, as two teams jumped into the rankings for the first time. The Rams stayed at the top with 12 of the 14 first-place votes. Despite a tough weekend at the Greybull Invite, the Tongue River Eagles remained in second. Burns debuts at No. 3. The Broncs impressed enough voters that they grabbed a pair of first-place votes. Kemmerer held steady in fourth. Shoshoni’s 4-1 weekend at Greybull pushed the Lady Blue into fifth.
The other new team in the poll this week is in Class 3A. Lyman and Mountain View are still first and second. The Eagles are a unanimous choice for No. 1 They went 7-1 at the Border Wars in Evanston. The Buffalos earned all but one second-place vote. Mountain View was 6-2 in that same Border War tournament. Both Pinedale and Powell moved up one spot to third and fourth, respectively. Wheatland made the top five at No. 5 after the Bulldogs won the Bronze Bracket at the Gillette Invite.
In 1A, the Kaycee Buckaroos got only two first-place votes but thanks to votes for second, third, and fourth, they held the top position. Five teams received at least one first-place vote in the smallest division. Southeast knocked off Kaycee last Saturday, and the Cyclones earned five votes for No. 1, but it wasn’t enough to push them to the top. Southeast is second. Saratoga won last week and garnered three first-place votes but slid down one spot to third. There was no tie for fourth this week. Little Snake River found itself alone in that spot. The Rattlers were 4-1 against 2A competition last week in Greybull. They also got a first-place vote. Cokeville dropped two spots to fifth. Riverside received a first-place vote but failed to break into the top five.
Finally in Class 4A, Kelly Walsh is a unanimous pick for No. 1. The Trojans are off to an 11-0 start and won the Gold Bracket at the Gillette Invite last weekend. Thunder Basin held onto second. Natrona County and Cody both moved up one position in the rankings. They are third and fourth, respectively. Laramie fell to fifth, despite a 5-1 weekend in Gillette.
