Weekly polls have become more of a talking point and measuring stick for players, fans and media types in high school basketball over the past five seasons. The Algoma Wolves girls basketball team has had a tremendous amount of success over that same five year span but has never been the pre-season number one team in the state.
That is until this season. WisSports.net has Algoma ranked number one in the state in Division 4. Following a state championship won at the Resch Center in Green Bay last season, pollsters feel the Wolves return enough to be considered the top team in Wisconsin.
Algoma senior post player Kennedy Blahnik has also been named the 31st player in the state according to the prep website.
