Final 4A Boys Power Rankings

Final 4A Boys Power Rankings
By Steve Dion

With the 2015-2016 season in the books, here are the final top ten rankings for the 4A Boys classification!

1) Federal Way (29-0):
The Eagles defended their title by completing a perfect 29-0 season to capture back-to-back 4A championships.

2) Kentwood (22-7):
The junior-laden Conks went toe-to-toe with Federal Way through three quarters in the regular season and title game; an indicator of their strength.

3) Gonzaga Prep (23-4):
The Bullpups were mere inches from knocking off Federal Way in the quarterfinals as a three-pointer the buzzer for the win narrowly glanced off. Beware of GPrep next season!

4) Curtis (25-5):
Tim Kelly takes the Vikings on another deep playoff run to cap off another strong season as one of the top 4A squads in Washington.

5) Union (23-3):
Vancouver’s powerhouse fought back to capture a fourth place finish in the Hardwood Classic after a first-round departure to Gonzaga Prep on Thursday of the tourney.

6) Issaquah (21-5):
Champions of a tough KingCo conference and advancing to the elite eight secure the sixth spot for a quality Eagles campaign.

7) Lewis & Clark (18-7):
The Tigers faced the champs in round one of the tourney resulting in a quick departure but held their own against the best of the classification.

8) Cascade (21-2):
A memorable season in program history concluded in the regional round against the eventual runner-up Kentwood.

9) Woodinville (19-5):
The high-flying Falcons fell short of reaching the Tacoma Dome again, but were improved from the previous season.

10) Central Valley (20-6):
The Bears flew under the radar all season and when the dust settled finished at the Woodshed with a top eight finish in the state.

4A State Basketball Rankings

4A State Basketball Rankings
By Steve Dion

As league play is in its final weeks and the playoffs are on the horizon, here at the top ten rankings for the 4A classification!

1) Federal Way: 18-0 (7-0)
Defending champs will be perched at the top until somebody knocks them off. Don’t expect this to happen anytime soon.

2) Curtis: 17-1 (10-0)
The Vikings continue their undeafeated mark against Washington state teams.

3) Cascade: 15-0 (9-0)
Gotell’s 51 points in Friday’s didn’t hurt the Bruins’ cause in solidifying themselves high in the rankings.

4) Gonzaga Prep: 14-1 (12-1)
Matty McIntyre’s Bullpups are the Beasts of the East. Many familiar names from the football championship squad.

5) Bellarmine Prep: 13-3 (8-0)
Can’t drop the Lions too far down considering their only in-state losses were to Lincoln and Curtis…by a combined seven points!

6) Union: 12-2 (7-0)
The Titans don’t rebuild, they reload.

7) Issaquah: 13-3 (11-1)
The second Eagles team in the top ten rankings is flying high once again on the Sammamish plateau.

8) Lewis & Clark: 12-3 (11-2)
The Tigers are hot on the heels of the Bullpups for the GSL lead.

9) Central Valley: 12-3 (10-3)
One of the top teams in one of the strongest leagues in 4A earns the Bears top ten honors.

10) Woodinville: 12-3 (9-3)
Tony Miller is a force to be reckoned with. Scored 20 in a win last week, 42 in a loss. Go figure.
