State girls basketball rankings — 4A, 3A, 2A

It was a relatively quite week in girls basketball around the state, especially for the ranked teams in Class 4A and 3A.

So much so, that I’ve made no changes in those rankings. The only losses were by teams to other ranked teams (in 4A, No. 9 Lewis and Clark fell to No. 5 Central Valley, but by just four points, and in 3A No. 9 Bishop Blanchet lost by three to No. 3 West Seattle).

I got some feedback about Wenatchee’s win over Moses Lake week before last that vaulted the Panthers into the rankings at No. 7 (plus they are responsible for No. 8 Sunnyside’s lone loss). Apparently Moses Lake had two starters out. However, Wenatchee won twice more last week and I’m not making a change right now.

I always find 2A more challenging. I left W.F. West at No. 2 despite a loss to Prairie, which is a 3A team.

The top four stay intact, but there’s a bunch of moving around after that. East Valley of Yakima, formerly No. 5, drops out after losses to No. 7 Ellensburg and Selah. I didn’t put Selah back in (the Vikings have a recent loss to Ephrata and both are 12-5). I gave Washougal some serious consideration but in the end went with Olympic, which knocked off Kingston last week, 50-49 (Kingston had been next on my list to jump in).

Things start heating up with some league tournaments as early as this week, and there are some big regular-season showdowns, too, so stay tuned!
