Girls basketball state rankings: Jan. 28

Here are the latest girls’ basketball polls from the New York State Sportswriters Association. Records are through games of Jan. 26.

I’ll list the top three teams in each class as well as any teams from Section 9 to make the cut. For the full list, click here.

Class AA

1. Christ the King (12-3, CHSAA)

2. St. Mary’s-Manhasset (9-3, CHSAA)

3. Long Island Lutheran (12-2, AIS)

16. Monroe-Woodbury (12-0)

Class A

1. Wallkill (11-0)

2. Pittsford Sutherland (14-0, Section 5)

3. Averill Park (13-1, Section 2)

16. Cornwall (8-2)

24. Goshen (10-2)

1. Irvington (13-1, Section 1)

2. Oneonta (11-1, Section 4)

3. Notre Dame-Utica (12-3, Section 3)

8. John A. Coleman Catholic (10-1)

9. Onteora (7-1)

Class C

1. Harpursville (14-0, Section 4)

2. Keshequa (13-0, Section 5)

3. Little Falls (12-0, Section 3)

4. Tri-Valley (11-0)

9. Chester (9-3)

20. S.S. Seward (7-4)

Class D

1. South Kortright (13-0, Section 4)

2. Romulus (14-0, Section 5)

3. Franklin (10-0, Section 4)

The pollmakers obviously missed Coleman Catholic’s big win (66-29) over Onteora last Thursday. I expected Coleman to move up a bit and for Onteora to slide back in the polls this week.

With Regents Week coming to a close, the schedule picks up again over the weekend. Here are a few games to look out for in the week ahead.


Kingston at Monroe-Woodbury, 6:30 p.m.: The Crusaders haven’t had any problem in OCIAA Division I so far, but their toughest test might come in the two games they have left against Kingston. Even if Kingston doesn’t win on Friday night, a good showing will at least give them a little confidence heading into a potential rematch in the Section 9 tournament. The Tigers play at NFA on Monday.


John S. Burke Catholic at Goshen, 6 p.m.: It’s a non-league game, sure, but Goshen bragging rights are on the line in this one. Burke Catholic has been on a roll lately and the Eagles are undefeated in Div. IV play. Will Goshen run away with this one or will Burke make it interesting?


Highland at Marlboro, 6:30 p.m.: Another team playing well of late is Highland, which will get a tough matchup on the road at Marlboro.


Cornwall at Monticello, 7 p.m.: The Green Dragons are marching toward an 11th consecutive OCIAA Div. III title and a win at Monticello would go a long way in making that a reality.
