4A and 3A girls hoops rankings — Week 9

And I thought last week’s girls basketball rankings were easy.

This week was an even bigger piece of cake, because there were so few games played involving ranked teams, thanks to that frigid weather. And the only ranked team that lost, 4A No. 10 Gonzaga Prep, fell against another ranked team in No. 1 Central Valley — by just two points, 59-57.

So, for the first time this season, there are no changes in either top-10. That likely will change next Monday, with some of the makeup games likely to fall on the schedule this week. There already is a big showdown set for Wednesday between two 4A powers as No. 3 Lake Stevens visits No. 5 Stanwood.

Here are those rankings again, with records updated where needed:

1. Central Valley (Spokane Valley) (13-0)
