Area teams moved up and down the rankings this week ahead of Christmas break.

• Shawnee Boys Basketball, No. 8 in 5A – The Wolves held onto the No. 8 ranking in 5A after a road loss at 5A No. 3 El Reno and a win over 4A No. 3 Ada in their home opener. The Wolves are back in action Jan. 5 at the Ada Tournament against No. 17 Durant.

• Shawnee Girls Basketball, No. 7 in 5A. The Lady Wolves started the year ranked No. 1, but losing Monica Brooks to an ACL injury and a tough early schedule has seen the 3-4 Lady Wolves drop to No. 7. The Lady Wolves lost on the road to El Reno and also lost their home opener with 4A No. 5 Ada Friday. The Lady Wolves take on unranked Southeast next Wednesday in the Duncan Tournament.

• Shawnee Girls Swimming, No. 5 in 5A. The Lady Wolves are back in action on Jan. 5 against Mid-Del and Carl Albert.

• Shawnee Boys Swimming, No. 10 in 5A – The Wolves dropped one spot to No. 10 this week behind Tulsa Bishop Kelley.

• Shawnee Wrestling 5A No. 6 Duals and No. 8 Tournament. The Wolves dropped one spot in Dual rankings and two spots in Tournament rankings this week. They are back in action Jan. 3 at home against 4A No. 14 Chickasha.

• Dale’s Lady Pirates remain No.1 in 2A Basketball. Dale received 47 of the 64 first place votes with No. 3 Cashion receiving 14 and No. 2 Home receiving three. The Lady Pirates topped Christian Heritage Friday and play again Dec. 28 at 6:30 p.m. against Class B No. 1 Lomega in the first round of the 2016 Bertha Frank Teague Classic. If they win, they play Thursday at 6:30 against the winner of 4A No. 5 Perkins-Tryon and Class A No. 1 Seiling. A loss leaves Dale playing the loser of that game at 3 p.m. Thursday. The other half of the bracket features 4A No. 5 Ada, 5A No. 4 and defending state champion Woodward, 4A No. 6 Newcastle and 2A No. 5 Wright City.

• Chandler Lady Lions, 3A No. 10. Chandler cracked the top ten this week, moving up one spot after wins over Seminole and Meeker last week.

• Asher’s Lady Indians dominated No. 15 Calvin and Maud last week, but they still managed to fall one spot to No. 8 in Class B. Despite losing 3 of its last 4, Caney is still No. 7 just ahead of Asher.

• Dale’s Pirates dropped one spot from No. 3 to No. 4 and received one first place vote despite losing to Christian Heritage at home Friday night. The win moved Christian Heritage from No. 18 to No. 14. Dale’s next game is Jan. 3 against Luther before they head to Kingston for a tournament. Kingston beat the Pirates in the OBU Bison Classic earlier in December.

• Earlsboro climbed two spots from No. 5 to No. 3 in Class B after winning the Little River Conference Tournament and beating Macomb by 47 points last week. Earlsboro is off until Jan. 10 when they travel to Tupelo.

• McLoud wrestling fell out of the 4A dual rankings this week. Mannford at 2-4 and Elgin at 1-4 jumped ahead of them.

• It is a little surprising that after winning the Bethel tournament and beating 3A No. 14 Jones last week that Tecumseh is still unranked in 4A. If they keep winning, voters will have to take notice.
