Volleyball rankings update: In a surprise, Bainbridge out of top 10

October 8th, 2012 by Annette Griffus

Talk about a shift in the rankings.

This one I don’t think was the correct call, but hey, I’m not voting. Bainbridge was shut out of the top 10 rankings by the state coaches association poll for Class 3A.

Bainbridge had been previously ranked No. 3 last week, jumping up from No. 6. The Spartans lost to Blanchet in a Metro League match last week. It was a bit of an upset, but the Metro League is one of the toughest in the state and I wouldn’t be surprised if the state semifinals consisted of 2 or 3 ML teams.

No other West Sound teams were listed in the rankings.

Class 4A—1, Mead. 2, Jackson. 3, Curtis. 4, Newport. 5, Bellarmine Prep. 6, Camas. 7, Olympia. 8, Skyline. 9, Auburn Riverside. 10, Puyallup.

Class 3A—1, Prairie. 2, Mercer Island. 3, Mount Si. 4, Timberline. 5, Kennewick. 6, Seattle Prep. 7, Glacier Peak. 8, Mount Spokane. 9, Kamiakin. 10, Kennedy.

Class 2A—1, West Valley (Yakima). 2, Selah. 3, Tumwater. 4, Colville. 5, Anacortes. 6, Capital (Olympia). 7, Glacier Peak. 8, Mount Spokane. 9, Kamiakin. 10, Kennedy.

Class 1A—1, Castle Rock. 2, Cascade (Leavenworth). 3, King’s. 4, Chelan. 5, Lakeside. 6, Brewster. 7, Freeman. 8, Lynden Christian. 9, Kalama. 10, Naches Valley.

Class 2B—1, Colfax. 2, Bear Creek. 3, Reardan. 4, Riverside Christian. 5, Pe Ell. 6, LaConner. 7, Northwest Christian (Colbert). 8, Darrington. 9, Dayton. 10, Kittitas.
