Wyoming High School Soccer Rankings: April 8, 2015
There were not many games played last week, but there were just enough to have a impact on the latest coaches/media rankings.
In 4A Boys, Riverton is still unbeaten and unscored on, thus the Wolverines are the new #1. They will face 2 very stern tests this weekend, when they travel to #5 Natrona, and Kelly Walsh. The Trojans may be winless, but you can't count them out just yet. 2-time defending champion Laramie now has 1 game under their belt, and move up #2. Sheridan is now #3 after being unranked last week. The Broncs beat former #1 Gillette week, and now the Camels are unranked. Both Sheridan and Gillette travel to Laramie this weekend. As for the #4 ranking, that went to Cheyenne East.
The top 4 are unchanged in 3A Boys. Jackson is still #1 and had last week off. The defending champs are followed by Lander, Worland, and Buffalo. The Broncs should get a good game on Friday, when they host the Warriors. Torrington is now in at #5. Saturday will be the day for the TrailBlazers to prove themselves, when they host Lander.
There was 1 small change in 4A Girls, but aside from that, it's still dominated by the East. Cheyenne East retains the #1 ranking, while Gillette moves up to #2. Both the Lady Thunderbirds and the Lady Camels have yet to give up a goal. Sheridan drops one spot to #3, while Laramie and Central hold at #4 and #5. The schedule this week has East at Central on Friday, while Laramie visits Sheridan and Gillette this weekend.
The 3A Girls rankings are unchanged. Star Valley is still #1, and are in the middle of a 3-week off period. Worland maintains its #2 ranking, followed by Cody, Buffalo and Lander. Cody is scheduled to visit Buffalo on Saturday, after they host Lander on Friday.
