The York High boys' basketball team is moving back up in the latest state poll released by Michael Bullock of the Sunbury Daily Item.

The Bearcats, after a big win over New Oxford on Saturday that clinched at least a share of the York-Adams Division I championship, are now ranked No. 9 in Class 5-A. That is up from the No. 10 position a week ago.

A few weeks back, York High was ranked No. 1 in 5-A, but the Bearcats dropped down after a streak where they lost three games over a 12-day period.

Several other Y-A boys' teams were listed under others to watch. They were Central York (16-5) in 6-A; New Oxford (16-5) and West York (16-4) in 5-A; and Eastern York (18-3) and Littlestown (19-1) in 4-A.

Below are state rankings for both boys' and girls' basketball. No Y-A girls' teams were ranked.
