Wyoming High School Girls Basketball Rankings: February 25, 2016
With the regular season about to end or already has ended in some cases, movement within the coaches/media rankings has slowed, because most of the top 5 teams have established themselves for most of the season.
There's no change in latest 4A rankings. It's Natrona, Gillette, Cheyenne East, Sheridan and Rock Springs in that order. Natrona visits Rock Springs on Saturday, and should already have the west #1 seed wrapped before the game tips off. Sheridan visits Gillette on Friday to close out the regular season. In the last meeting 3 weeks ago, Robbi Ryan dropped 50, but the Lady Camels escaped with an overtime win.
One team is making a late season surge in 3A, and it showing signs that they're aren't dead yet. Defending champ Powell is back in the rankings at #5. The rest of the rankings are unchanged from last week. Worland is still #1, followed by Newcastle, Star Valley and Mountain View at 2, 3, and 4 respectively.
For 2A and 1A, these are the final rankings.
There is very little change in the final 2A rankings, and none at all in 1A. Lyman is still #1 in 2A. Southeast moves ahead of Pine Bluffs by 1 vote to #2, bumping PB to #3 after last week's win, but those teams might clash again at the East Regional Tournament. Wyoming Indian holds steady at #4, while Big Horn is still #5. Wright and Tongue River are both not far behind them. The East Regional Tournament is loaded.
Nothing changes in 1A. 4 of the 5 ranked teams will be at the West Regional Tournament. That would be #1 St. Stephens, #2 Little Snake River, #3 Cokeville, and #5 Encampment. Meanwhile, #4 Kaycee will play in the East Regional Tournament.
