Another week, another move up by Bonneville in the 4A ranks of the latest Idaho high school girls basketball state media poll.

The Bees, who are 7-0 through Tuesday, moved up to the No. 2 spot in the most recent poll released Wednesday to complete an eastern Idaho 1-2 in the 4A ranks behind No. 1 Century (8-0).

The 3A and 2A ranks had some considerable shuffling for local teams. Snake River went from No. 2 to No. 3 following a 43-42 loss to Teton on Tuesday night--the Panthers’ first loss of the season while Sugar-Salem remained in the No. 4 spot.

Aside from unanimous and undefeated No. 1 Soda Springs, eastern Idaho teams appeared in different spots in the 2A poll this week. Firth went from No. 2 to No. 4 following losses to Cole Valley Christian and South Fremont since the last poll. Ririe, coming off losses to Soda Springs and North Summit (Utah), stayed at the No. 3 spot.

Elsewhere in the poll, Rigby was among 5A teams receiving votes, Blackfoot was among 4A teams receiving votes and Teton was among 3A teams receiving votes.

The complete poll is below with local teams bolded.
