New Top 10 Girls, Boys Basketball Polls Released

The top two teams stay put in the latest Top 10 Girls and Boys Basketball polls released Sunday evening by The RVA Sports Network, but both #3 teams from last week slip and two teams return to the Top 10, one in each poll. We are already have several postponements for Monday games and expect Tuesday games to be affected by the weather. We'll see how it affects regular season schedules down the stretch as schools decide on make-good dates, or, in some cases, whether they will play at all.


1) Monacan (was #1)
2) Highland Springs (was #2)
3) St. Catherine's (was #4)
4) Trinity Episcopal (was #3)
5) J.R. Tucker (was #5)
6) Hopewell (was #6)
7) Cosby (was #7)
8) L.C. Bird (was #9)
9) Atlee (returning)
10) James River (was #8)

Dropping Out: Varina

NOTES: St. Catherine's win over Trinity earns them a move to #3, while the Titans move down just one as #5 J.R. Tucker struggles with an improving Hermitage team. Atlee has won five in a row, including a 51-38 triumph at Varina back on Tuesday.


1) L.C. Bird (was #1)
2) Trinity Episcopal (was #2)
3) John Marshall (was #4)
4) Mills Godwin (was #5)
5) Varina (was #6)
6) Monacan (was #3)
7) Henrico (was #7)
8) St. Christopher's (was #8)
9) Highland Springs (was #9)
10) Hermitage (returning)

Dropping Out: Armstrong

NOTES: The Panthers are back in the Top 10 having won their last six games. #1 L.C. Bird never got to tip with now #6 Monacan Friday due to unexpected early evening snow. The Chiefs come off a tough loss by 22 to James River. Four of the top seven teams, and six teams overall in the poll, either come from Conference 11 or Conference 12, showing how competitive the 5A South Region will likely be come mid-February. We are a little less than two weeks away from a #1 vs. #2 showdown when the Titans go to the Skyhawks on Saturday January 21st.
