Girls basketball state rankings delayed; update: finally posted

The girls’ basketball state rankings were updated on Wednesday afternoon. Here are the top three teams in each class along with any Section 9 teams that made the cut.

For the full list, click here.

I’ve updated the records of our Section 9 teams. The poll has wrong records for Monroe-Woodbury, Coleman Catholic and Marlboro.

Class AA
1. Ossining (10-3, Section 1)
2. South Shore (17-2, PSAL)
3. Bethlehem (12-0, Section 2)
29. Monroe-Woodbury (10-1)

Class A
1. Holy Names (12-0, Section 2)
2. Lutheran (9-3, AIS)
3. Pittsford Mendon (12-1, Section 5)
10. Wallkill (10-1)

Class B
1. Irvington (12-1, Section 1)
2. Westhill (12-0, Section 3)
3. Oneonta (11-0, Section 4)
8. John A. Coleman Catholic (9-3)
24. Marlboro (6-4)

Class C
1. Alexander Hamilton (13-1, Section 1)
2. Hoosic Valley (11-2, Section 2)
3. Canton (11-1, Section 10)
12. Millbrook (9-2)
24. Tri-Valley (9-3)

I had hoped to bring you the latest girls’ basketball rankings from the New York State Sportswriters Association yesterday, but the polls weren’t published until today.

And then they were quickly taken down.

Luckily, Jordan Griffith was able to post the results on Twitter before the polls were yanked. For more info, check out his feed here: @MSGV_JGriffith.

Monroe-Woodbury was ranked No. 29 in Class AA, falling a few spots after losing to Minisink Valley last week.

Wallkill, after a loss to Marlboro last week, fell to No. 10 in Class A.

Cloleman Catholic, despite two losses over the weekend – by a combined four points, jumped up one spot to No. 8 in Class B. Marlboro, despite the win over Wallkill, fell two spots to No. 21.

Millbrook was listed at No. 12 in Class C. Tri-Valley entered the rankings at No. 24.

The reason the polls were yanked was because Alexander Hamilton of Section 1 fell to No. 5 in the Class C rankings after playing a very tough and competitive game in a loss against Ossining, the No. 1-ranked Class AA team in the state. Supposedly there are a number of other incorrect team records in the poll as well.

I will update this post if there are any changes today or later this week, but that’s where we stand for now.

Any comments on where you think Section 9 teams should be placed in the state rankings? Any thoughts on the Varsity845 top 10? Let me know on Twitter: @THR_Montgomery.
