A 9-0 record has the Bonneville High School girls basketball team No. 2 in the 4A ranks of the girls basketball state media poll for another week.

The Bees again completed an eastern Idaho 1-2 behind top-ranked Century in the 4A ranks of the latest poll released Wednesday. Bonneville received one No. 1 vote this week and Blackfoot was among teams receiving votes.

In 3A, Sugar-Salem leapfrogged Snake River for the No. 3 spot. The Diggers defeated the Panthers 59-37 on Tuesday. The Panthers also lost to 3A District 6 teams Teton (43-42) and South Fremont (39-28) within the last week. Teton was among teams receiving votes this week.

Ririe and Firth remained at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, in the 2A ranks, but the separation between No. 2 and No. 3 was closer this week than last week. Melba, No. 2 for a second consecutive week, had 29 points from votes this week and Ririe had 28.

The complete poll is below with local teams bolded. The poll will return Jan. 9.
