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

Let’s get right to it — Bellevue is the new top-ranked girls basketball team in Class 3A.

The game that got everyone’s attention  last week was Glacier Peak’s 61-49 victory over Lynnwood, which had been ranked No. 1 all season. I thought the Royals were definitely a cut above in 3A, and had that belief only slightly shaken after they lost to Beamer, which is ranked No. 3 in 4A. Lynnwood missed 19 straight shots during one stretch of that one, and I didn’t envision that happening again.

It was a great win for GP, which had lost to Lynnwood by 25 in mid-January. The Grizzlies then dropped their only other game two days later to Edmonds-Woodway by four. Those two square off again tonight, and I’ll be anxious to hear about it.

I wound up dropping Lynnwood to No. 3, followed by Glacier Peak and Edmonds-Woodway.

That should be a great Northwest 3A District tourney, and I hope to get out there to see some of it.

The only change in 4A is Moses Lake and Sunnyside swappint places as the Chiefs avenged an earlier loss.

No new teams in or out in any of the top three classifications — just some more rearranging in 2A.

The fun is just beginning with playoffs under way, so stay tuned!
