Coming off a victory over rival Madison, Rigby moved up a spot in the boys basketball state media poll released Tuesday.

The Trojans are No. 2 in 5A at 18-1, trailing only Rocky Mountain, which received all eight first-place votes and has had a hold on No. 1 with a 19-1 record.

Idaho Falls also moved up in the 4A poll, to No. 3. The 4A poll has been a battle between Middleton and Preston for the top spot. This week the two tied atop the poll and split first-place votes with four each. Burley and Kuna were newcomers at fourth and fifth, respectively.

Sugar-Salem and Teton remained third and fourth in 3A even as the Diggers handed Teton two losses over the past two weeks.

In 2A, North Fremont suffered a loss to Salmon, but held onto the top spot, edging out West Side by two points.

Mackay continued its hold on fifth in the 1A Division 2 poll.
