Westview can go up only more spot.
The Lady Chargers made another step up in the Associated Press Class AA girls’ basketball poll in Monday’s vote, moving up to No. 2.
Grainger is the runaway pick for No. 1 with a 17-0 record, garnering 17 first-place votes and 170 points in the poll.
Westview has 133 points in the poll.
The Lady Chargers hammered Haywood 65-27 on Friday night to improve their record to 19-2 and leap over Livingston Academy, which fell to No. 3.
McMinn Central climbed one spot to No. 4, and Westview’s District 13AA rival Covington jumped two spots to No. 5.
Every team in the poll moved from their spots last week.
Cannon County fell from fourth to sixth, Elizabethton inched up from eighth to a tie for seventh with Knoxville Fulton, which dropped from sixth, and CPA and Creek Wood switched places with CPA now ninth and Creek Wood 10th.
This week’s state polls continue to be dotted with rural West Tennessee teams, including Union City atop a cluttered 1A girls’ poll.
In Class A, six different teams received first-place votes, led by UC’s 10, and only 49 points separate the Lady Tornadoes (160) and fifth-place Clarkrange (111).
In the boys’ 2A poll, Jackson South Side is still No. 2, while District 13AA’s Covington moved up a spot to No. 4.
Dyer County dropped four spots to No. 10 in the Class AAA poll, while Union City is up two spots to No. 8 in single-A. Published in The WCP 1.22.13
