Ririe 2019 logo

The latest Idaho girls basketball state media poll has a new District 6 team among the rankings.

Ririe, the three-time defending 2A Nuclear Conference champion which is on a seven-game win streak, joined the 2A ranks this week in a tie for No. 5 with New Plymouth. This is the first time since Ririe was No. 5 in the week one poll on Dec. 11 that a 2A Nuclear Conference girls team has been ranked this season.

The poll remained relatively unchanged otherwise for the District 6 teams represented. Bonneville and Sugar-Salem remained unanimous No. 1s in 4A and 3A, respectively, for another week while Teton again held the No. 4 spot in 3A. Blackfoot also remained in the No. 4 spot in the 4A ranks. Butte County, tied for No. 5 in 1A Division I last week, claimed the No. 5 spot outright this week.

Rigby was among teams receiving votes in 5A, Snake River was among teams receiving votes in 3A and Mackay was among teams receiving votes in 1A Division II.
