Shoshone’s unbeaten start and convincing victories in its opening four games was enough to bump it up to the No. 2 spot in the 1A Division I rankings in the latest state media poll, released Wednesday.

The Indians (4-0, 1-0) were in the No. 3 spot in the opening rankings of the season, but a nine-point victory against Valley on Tuesday and Lapwai’s second loss of the season helped Shoshone make the leap, trailing only Prairie (3-0), which received all nine first-place votes.

Shoshone will host Raft River on Thursday with hopes of continuing its strong start to the season.

Elsewhere, Minico jumped from No. 4 to No. 3 in the 4A poll, following a 6-0 start to the campaign. The Spartans crushed Pocatello 64-40 on Tuesday to jump Bonneville (4-0).

In 3A, Gooding entered the top five for the first time this season after receiving votes last week. The Senators (4-0, 1-0) defeated Buhl 48-43 on Tuesday. Kimberly, ranked No. 5 in the first poll, dropped out after a 46-40 loss to Declo on Tuesday.

After Carey tied for No. 5 in the first poll and Dietrich had votes but sat on the outside, looking in, the two 1A Division II teams have swapped spots. The Blue Devils (4-1) blew out Castleford 60-23 on Tuesday, while the Panthers (2-1) had not played prior to voting since losing 40-34 to Shoshone.
