State volleyball rankings — week 5

I think we might just see some significant changes in next week’s state volleyball rankings, after that mega Spokane Crossover Classic. But there’s not really any big moves in the ones I’m posting today– just a little rearranging and one newcomer (keep reading!).

In Class 4A, the only ranked teams who lost fell to other ranked teams — Monroe beat Edmonds-Woodway, Kamiak beat Monroe and Olympia beat Rogers of Puyallup. That Oly-Rogers match was something, from what I heard and the scores show — 26-24, 28-30, 25-21, 22-25, 15-11. Rogers actually moves from No. 10 to No. 8 this week, because of it. Olympia stays at No. 6.

Kamiak remains at No. 4 and Monroe at No. 7, but E-W slips a spot from seventh to eighth and Kentlake steps down from ninth to 10th. Skyview of Vancouver is playing well again, from what I hear, and could vault back into the rankings with a good showing at the Crossover tourney.

In Class 3A, the top four remain the same, but Auburn Mountainview moves down from fifth to seventh. The Lions have to regroup a bit after losing Lexi Morton to that season-ending knee injury, but they still could be major contenders when the playoffs roll around.

Prairie climbs to No. 5 and has a big match Thursday against Camas, a team knocking on the door. Eastside Catholic struggled to beat Seattle Prep, 3-2, and goes from No. 6 to No. 8 — just above No. 9 Bishop Blanchet, which they recently beat.

Mount Si is battling injuries, too, and last week’s loss to Juanita drops them out of the rankings. The Wildcats had a good showing at the BCC tournament last weekend, though, losing only to Newport and finishing second. Mercer Island returns to the top-10 in the No. 10 spot.
