Monday’s Big Six Boys and Girls Basketball Rankings

Editor’s Note: The Big Six Rankings have changed.
Instead of ranking the top three teams of a sport for both the boys and the
girls, we will now rank the top six teams but encompassing all the sports. The

is upon us, the rankings will be based on baseball, softball, track and field,
boys and girls soccer, etc.
