In Class 1A, just like their girls’ team, the Upton boys are ranked No. 1. The Bobcats are a unanimous pick, as they got all 12 first-place votes. Saratoga holds onto the second spot. The Panthers are just six points ahead of the Dubois Rams. They remain third in the poll. The Guernsey-Sunrise Vikings make their first appearance in the rankings this season. They are off to a 3-1 start. That pushed Burlington down to No. 5. Farson-Eden fell out of the poll, but the Pronghorns are one of seven other teams with votes this week.
In 2A, the top four are the same with a new team in fifth. Pine Bluffs is still ranked first. The Hornets earned nine first-place votes. Tongue River picked up the other three votes for first. The Eagles are second. Rocky Mountain and Big Piney stay in third and fourth, respectively. Wind River returns to the poll at No. 5. St. Stephens dropped out of the top five, but they were one of six more schools that received a vote in this week’s poll.
The only change in Class 4A is two teams trading spots in the top five. Thunder Basin stays atop the rankings. The Bolts got all but one first-place vote. Kelly Walsh has climbed to No. 2. The Trojans trade spots with Sheridan, who falls to third. Cheyenne East and Cheyenne Central stay fourth and fifth. Four other teams earned votes in the poll.
The top five in 3A are the same as the previous rankings. Douglas stays put at No. 1. The Bearcats received 12 first-place votes. That puts both Douglas High School teams atop the 3A division. Worland holds onto second, but the Warriors are only three points ahead of Buffalo. The Bison stay put at No. 3. Rawlins is still fourth. The Outlaws are followed by Lyman in fifth. The Eagles are alone in that spot. Lander dropped out of the tie with Lyman, but the Tigers are one of three other teams that got votes this week.
