Shoshone Girls basketball

Shoshone's Patti Fitzgerald (10) and Cierra Hennings (22) double-teams Wendell's Aspen Stinemates during non-conference play Thursday night, Dec. 20, 2018, at Shoshone High school.

For the eighth week out of eight total, the Shoshone High School girls basketball team came in at 1A Division I’s No. 2 spot in the latest state media poll, released on Wednesday.

The Indians (14-1) have not dropped a contest since the last poll was released on Dec. 19, going 4-0 in the process and averaging a margin of victory of 14 points.

Another team came in at No. 2, thanks to a jump up the board. Carey (11-1), the only team to defeat Shoshone this season, is now behind only unbeaten Sho-Ban in the 1A Division II ranks.

The Panthers were previously tied with conference foe Dietrich for the No. 4 slot, but two convincing wins—by an average of 26 points—helped them make the leap up in the rankings.

Elsewhere, Minico, a mainstay in the 4A poll all season, dropped out for the first time. The Spartans (10-5) went 2-2 over the holidays dropping a contest to Caldwell, which whom they were tied for fourth in the last poll, and 5A Eagle. Minico did still receive votes.

Gooding (10-6) stayed at the No. 5 spot it had been in for a few weeks, albeit tied with Teton. The Senators went 2-3 since the last poll, however, two of those losses came against 4A opponents, which likely influenced Gooding’s ability to stay among the ranked.

No local teams received votes in 2A, and Shoshone was the only team involved in the 1A Division I poll.

Carey was the only 1A Division II team ranked this week, but Dietrich(11-2), despite falling out of the rankings, received the most votes out of the non-ranked squads. Hagerman (12-3) also received votes.
