Wyoming Area girls move into second spot among Small Schools

Wyoming Area used last week’s victory over Lake-Lehman to win the Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 championship and take over second place among Small School girls teams in this week’s Riverfront Sports Super Six Track and Field Power Rankings of District 2 teams.

The Lady Warriors are one of five teams to move up, along with a new addition to the rankings, in this week’s rankings, which were released Monday at noon.

The North Pocono boys, Dallas girls, Mid Valley boys and Montrose girls all held on to the No. 1 spots in the rankings.

The Wallenpaupack, Dunmore and Blue Ridge boys, as well as the Abington Heights girls, also moved up this week. The Scranton boys joined the rankings.

North Pocono, which won the Lackawanna Track Conference Division 2 and Jordan Relays Class 3A boys titles during the week, remains the No. 1 Big School team.

Crestwood remains second, heading into its meeting of unbeaten teams with visiting Dallas for the WVC Division 1 title.

Wallenpaupack moved into third, trading places with Dallas, which slipped to fourth.

Scranton used its victory over Abington Heights to force a three-way tie for the LTC Division 1 title and join the rankings in fifth.

Valley View held on to sixth after finishing in the three-way tie for first with Scranton and Abington Heights, which dropped from the rankings.

Dallas and Crestwood remained 1-2 in Big School girls.

They are also undefeated in WVC Division 1 before a meet at Crestwood, which should decide the title. The winner will be assured of no worse than a tie for first place in the final standings.

Abington Heights used its titles in LTC Division 1 and the Jordan Relays Class 3A girls division to pass LTC Division 2 champion Wallenpaupack into third place. The Comets have won 15 straight division titles and 90 straight dual meets.

Hazleton Area and Pittston Area remained fifth and sixth.

The top three teams – Mid Valley, Wyoming Area and Holy Redeemer – remain the same in Small School boys.

Mid Valley won LTC Division 3 and Jordan Relays Class 2A titles. Wyoming Area, which had already clinched at least a first-place tie, locked up its third straight WVC Division 2 title.

Dunmore and Blue Ridge each moved up one spot into fourth and fifth while Scranton Prep dropped from fourth to sixth. Blue Ridge won its first LTC title, finishing unbeaten in Division 4.

Montrose remains first in Small School girls.

The Lady Meteors secured their third straight LTC Division 4 title and won the Jordan Relays Class 2A title for their third invitational championship of the season.

Wyoming Area beat Lake-Lehman, 92-58, to trade places and take over second from the Lady Knights, who slipped to third.

LTC Division 3 champion Lakeland, Holy Cross and Holy Redeemer held fourth through sixth.

The James Cross Invitational, featuring most of the top WVC teams, was canceled Saturday because of rain. All the LTC teams will get together for the Robert Spagna Conference Championship Meet Tuesday night at Scranton Memorial Stadium.
