State girls basketball rankings — Week 10

Sorry for the late post with the latest girls basketball rankings today. I’ve had meetings and other commitments.

So I’m going to keep the prelude short. It’s going to be a fun week as post-season play picks up and we should start seeing some great matchups. I’m excited to see Mount Rainier and Beamer square off again tomorrow (Tuesday) in the SPSL tournament at ShoWare in Kent, for starters.

As for the rankings, there are two new teams to the 4A top-10 this week. Or perhaps I should say one new team, and one old team.

Lewis and Clark jumps in at No. 9 after knocking off Central Valley (former No. 8) last week. CV plays No. 7 Mead later this week.

Arlington returns at No. 10 after Jackson stumbled again last week, this time to Kamiak.

Chiawana slides from No. 5 to No. 8 after losing to Walla Walla — which continues to knock on the door.

In both 3A and 2A, there is just some juggling with no teams dropping out. Glacier Peak climbs to No. 7 in 3A after last week’s win over Mountlake Terrace, which hangs in at No. 10.

Big game Tuesday in the KingCo 3A tournament between No. 5 Juanita and No. 9 Bellevue. We plan to have someone there.

The surprise (to me) in 2A last week was West Valley of Yakima falling to East Valley of Yakima. It was just the second loss of the season for the Rams, who slide from No. 7 to No. 9.

I’ll try to link to some updated brackets over the next couple of days. But for now, here are the latest rankings:
