While Sugar-Salem and Butte County kept their No. 1 spots in the Idaho high school girls basketball state media poll for another week, a local 5A school made the rankings for the first time this season.

Bonneville, which is off to a 6-0 start, received eight votes to move to No. 5 in the 5A rankings of the poll released Wednesday. The Bees have received votes for each poll thus far this season, but did not make the top five until this week.

In 2A, West Jefferson and Nuclear Conference compatriot Firth switched spots. The Cougars, who were ranked No. 3 last week, are now No. 4 after South Fremont dealt them their first loss of the season on Nov. 29. The Panthers, who were ranked No. 4 last week, are now No. 3 after handing defending 1A Division II state champion Butte County its first loss in 26 games on Nov. 29.

Sugar-Salem received five of nine votes to keep its No. 1 spot in 3A while Snake River held on to its No. 4. spot. Butte County received seven of nine votes to stay No. 1 in 1A Division II for the third week in a row.

The complete poll is below with local teams bolded.
