The Lady Braves (4-2) are coming off their second cancelled contest with Bear Lake High School and as a result they have only played six games. They will face an improved Lady Wrangler (6-2) squad that despite six wins to start the season have not impressed the voters in the Wyopreps.com Coaches & Media Poll. Star Valley comes into this game ranked at #4 while Pinedale is unranked. The Lady Wranglers defeated Rawlins, 52-49 and Big Piney, 54-21 last weekend. The Lady Braves also defeated the Outlaws last week, 50-43. In the all-time series Star Valley leads Pinedale 19-1 with the Lady Wranglers’ only win coming in February of 1983.

The Braves (5-2) have lost two games in a row after starting the season undefeated after a 41-36 loss at home to Rawlins. The Outlaws (7-2) also defeated Pinedale (2-6), 56-46. Star Valley tumbled from #1 to #4 in this week’s Wyopreps.com Coaches & Media Poll. In research dating back to the 1951 season, the Wranglers have not notched a win against Star Valley, although there was a gap from 1955-2005 where the two schools did not play a varsity boys contest. The Braves are 12-0 against Pinedale since the Wranglers moved to the 3A classification in the 2005-06 season.
