NORTH LITTLE ROCK — Conference play has began for most senior girls basketball teams leading up to the Christmas break. As a result, the Arkansas Sports Media Girls High School Basketball Poll is taking shape.

Harrison’s Lady Goblins held their spot at No. 3 in the Class 4A poll with one first-place vote while gaining a pair of votes in the Overall Poll.

Valley Springs dropped a spot in the Class 3A poll after losing four of its last five games. The Lady Tigers sit at No. 2 and nipping at their heels in the third position is the 15-1 Lady Panthers of Bergman.

The top three spots in the Overall Poll remain unchanged from last week. Bentonville received the majority of the first-place votes and sit atop the leaderboard. Greenwood follows at No. 2 and Conway is third. Fort Smith Northside moved up a spot to fourth despite being idle last week. Melbourne continues to win and is sixth. Batesville is 6-0 with a win over Valley Springs and is No. 7. Farmington, a member of the 4A-1, is eighth. Fayetteville lost a pair of games last week, but hold the ninth spot while North Little Rock remains at No. 10.


Bentonville beat Mountain Home last week and lead the Class 6A poll. Conway is second and FS Northside falls a position to third. North Little Rock moves up one spot to fourth and Fayetteville drops a slot to fifth.

Class 5A is led by Greenwood followed by undefeated Batesville. Little Rock Christian dropped from second to third and Vilonia enters the poll at fourth. Paragould rounds out the poll at No. 5.

Farmington received all but two of the first-place votes in Class 4A with Star City and Harrison each receiving one. The Lady Cardinals lead an unchanged poll with Star City second and the Lady Goblins holding at No. 3. Nashville is fourth followed by Pulaski Academy.

Lamar’s 6-0 record moved them to the top of the Class 3A poll. Valley Springs received more first-place votes but the recent losses couldn’t keep enough voters and the Lady Tigers fell to No. 2.
