Three District 6 teams were newcomers to the first Idaho high school girls basketball state media poll of 2019.

In 4A, where undefeated Century and Bonneville took the top two spots for another week, Blackfoot joined the ranks at the No. 5 spot. In 3A, where Sugar-Salem held onto the No. 3 spot, Teton was tied for the No. 5 spot. Snake River, previously ranked No. 4, was among 3A teams receiving votes.

Ririe held onto the No. 3 spot in 2A, where West Jefferson joined the ranks in a tie for the No. 4 spot. Firth was among 2A teams receiving votes.

In 5A, Rigby was among teams receiving votes.

All six No. 1 ranked teams were the same as the final media poll of 2018, and five of them are undefeated.
