Volleyball Rankings: October 22, 2014
The last weekend of the 2014 regular season is upon us, and a few teams are getting ready for the post-season with some big matchups pitting ranked team vs. ranked team.
The latest coaches/media rankings are mostly the same from last week.
Natrona is the unanimous #1 in 4A. They will host Volleybowl on Thursday in their new gym vs. #3 Kelly Walsh. Both Casper teams are already in the state tournament. Cheyenne East holds at #2, and has already claimed the #1 seed on the east side. Riverton is still ranked #4, and it's Cheyenne Central who takes the #5 spot, after sweeping then #5 Gillette last week. The Lady Indians and Lady Camels split head to head, so we'll have to see how the tie-breaker works for seeding.
No change in the latest 3A rankings. It's still Powell at #1, with Mountain View not far behind them at #2, followed by Rawlins, Douglas and Lovell. The schedule doesn't have much on it for this weekend, but regionals on both sides should be entertaining.
2A saw a little bit of change, and 1 big game lurks. Wright is the unanimous #1, but the Lady Panthers visit #2 Big Horn this weekend, in a match that will determine the northeast seedings. Lyman moves up one spot to #3, by one vote ahead of Southeast, who drops to #4. Shoshoni holds at #5, and is hoping to wrap up the Northwest on Friday at Thermopolis.
1A is a tight race. Hulett retains the #1 spot, but by only one vote ahead of Encampment. The #2 Lady Tigers have a big road trip Saturday at #3 Little Snake River, for first place in the southwest. After that, Cokeville and Kaycee tie for the #4 spot.
There is one error, and that this is not the final poll of the season.
