Schut looks

Sophomore Morgan Schut looks toward the bench during W-SR’s loss to CPU on Dec. 5 in Waverly.

The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union released its third girls basketball rankings Thursday afternoon, and two area teams made small jumps.

The Waverly-Shell Rock Go-Hawks rose from No. 13 to No. 12 in Class 4A in the latest rankings.

The uptick comes after the Go-Hawks won two straight games to even their record to 2-2 on the season.

On Saturday, W-SR defeated Dubuque Hempstead (Class 5A), and then the Go-Hawks beat Oelwein by 74 points Tuesday, giving up just 5 points, a school record.

Meanwhile, the Clarksville Indians also jumped up one spot, from No. 7 to No. 6 in Class 1A. 

The Indians have had a dominant start to their season, boasting a 3-0 record. Clarksville's average margin of victory thus far is 33.3 points, and team beat Baxter 61-30 at home last Saturday.
