Two new District 6 teams joined the ranks of the final girls basketball state media poll of 2019.

Teton (7-4), previously among 3A teams receiving votes in the first poll of the season released Dec. 11, moved up to the No. 4 spot in 3A this week. Two-time defending state champion Sugar-Salem remained in the No. 1 spot, receiving six of seven first-place votes while Snake River was among 3A teams receiving votes.

Mackay also joined the 1A Division II ranks, moving into the No. 5 spot after being previously unranked. The Miners entered Thursday on a four-game win streak and are responsible for handing Rockland, ranked No. 3 this week and No. 1 last week, its lone loss.

Undefeated Bonneville held onto its No. 2 spot in the 4A ranks behind defending 4A state champion Century while fellow 4A District 6 team Blackfoot remained in the No. 3 spot.

Rigby was among 5A teams receiving votes while Ririe and Butte County were among 2A and 1A Division I teams receiving votes, respectively. The 5A,1A Division I and 1A Division II ranks all had new No. 1 teams this week. Timberline moved from No. 3 to No. 1 in 5A, Lapwai leapfrogged Prairie for No. 1 in 1ADI and defending state champion Carey moved from No. 2 to No. 1 in 1ADII.
