After spending a week on the beach in Florida, I’m back. I tried to bring some of that sun back, so teams can get some games in. However, it didn’t seem to work very well. I was drenched at two track meets late last week.
There isn’t much to report in the rankings this week. The top five in Class 4A – Richland, Redmond, Kentwood and Jackson – remain the same.
Ferris, at 12-1, jumped from the bubble up to No. 6. Tahoma moves up to No. 9, while Newport falls to No. 10 after going 2-2 over its last four games.
In 3A, the top five – Camas, Shorewood, Enumclaw and Southridge – also remains intact. Mount Si jumps to No. 6, while Kamiakin falls to No. 8. Kennewick, at 10-2, enters the rankings for the first time this season.
O’Dea, the defending 3A champion, slips to the final spot in the rankings this week.
