In the AAA division, Parkersburg High, Parkersburg South, and Brooke remain at #1, #2, and #3.

The fourth, fifth, and sixth spots end up like a three man round robin where each contestant is 1-1. Ripley finished ahead of Huntington High at the MSAC by 23 points on February 8; Huntington High finished 17 points ahead of East Fairmont at the WSAZ on January 25; East Fairmont finished 38.5 points ahead of Ripley at the Winners Choice on January 18. We could speculate on what might have happened if everyone had made weight, etc., but for this week will rank these teams at #4, #5, and #6.

The seventh through tenth spots remain unchanged from the previous poll, with Nitro, Wheeling Park, Jefferson, and North Marion.

In the AA/A division, Oak Glen, Calhoun, and Cameron remain at the 1-3 spots.

The remainder of the field continues to puzzle and perplex the WV-Mat pollsters. Number four Braxton County may be getting hot at the end of the season, finishing only 3.5 points behind Calhoun at the LKC tournament, and a healthy 21 points ahead of #5 Williamstown.

The sixth through tenth spots do their weekly shuffle. Shady Spring took 2nd at the Coalfield Conference tournament on February 8, ahead of Independence, and Greenbrier West; and Shady finished 7th at the WSAZ on January 25, ahead of Point Pleasant and Independence. Thus, Shady Spring is tabbed at #6. Point Pleasant comes in at #7. Which leaves #8, #9, and #10. Roane County finished ahead of St Marys at the LKC on February 8. St Marys finished ahead of Independence at the WSAZ, while Independence and Greenbrier West were one point apart at the Coalfield. Thus, the WV-Mat pollsters will place Roane County back in to the poll at #8, St Marys at #9, and declare a tie for tenth between Independence and Greenbrier West.
