Wyoming High School Soccer Rankings: April 4, 2018
Because of the Easter Holiday and/or Spring Break, there were not many games played last week, and the new coaches/media rankings didn't change much, as a result.
The top 4 teams in 4A Boys remain unchanged. It's Thunder Basin, Rock Springs, Cheyenne Central and Kelly Walsh in that order. Natrona is now in at #5, and hosts the big game this week vs. #4 KW. TB hosts unranked Cheyenne South on Friday, in what will be a first place battle in the East. RS will play in the Southwest Tournament in Green River vs. mostly 3A opponents this weekend.
There's not much change in the new 3A rankings. Star Valley is back on top by themselves, with Worland at #2. The Braves and the Warriors each have a first round bye in the tournament at GR this week. #3 Torrington, #4 Buffalo and #5 Cody, will all be at the tournament as well, with the Bison vs. the Broncs being the opening round game.
The interesting matchups for the first weekend of April will take place in 4A girls as 4 of the top 5 play each other, in East conference play, with the higher seed travelling to enemy territory. #1 Cheyenne Central visits #4 Campbell County on Friday, while #2 Thunder Basin visits #5 Laramie on Saturday. #3 Rock Springs will play at a tournament in Worland vs. mostly 3A opponents, and the Lady Tigers get a first round bye.
At the tournament in Worland will be the top 5 ranked teams in 3A girls. Cody is the unanimous #1 team, and also have a first round bye. #2 Star Valley, #3 Powell, #4 Douglas and #5 Worland will play as well. Powell is the big surprise so far this season, after a huge shutout win at Worland last week.
