SBLive 2023-24 preseason Class 2A Washington high school girls basketball rankings

Undefeated the past two seasons, two-time defending state champion Ellensburg has legitimate claim as best team in all of Washington

Based on conversations with coaches and statewide media, SBLive ranked the top 10 teams across the state of Washington in Class 2A girls basketball heading into the 2023-24 season:



Laylee Dixon, Prosser girls basketball, class of 2025


Two-time defending state champions haven't lost in two seasons, and point guard Jamison Philip's work rate and energy are contagious for still-talented cast.


Feels like this team is the best threat to Ellensburg, especially now that coach Rob Adams is back - and with guard Finley Parcher and forward Payton Mills in tow.


Talk about athletic, few teams can match this streaking Mustangs' group, led by forward Lay'lee Dixon, guard Adriana Milanez and newcomer Herbie Wright.

4. W.F. WEST

Bearcats have been in every WIAA tournament since 2017, and now have better (and deeper) guard play to go along with 6-foo-3 junior post-playing phenom Julia Dalan.


Young squad is maturing quickly, led by playmaking guards Ava Marr and Brooke Blachly. Wildcats expected to contend among deep 3A pool in Wesco.


After multi-year absence from Yakima, talented Bantams have deep-player vibe, led by guards Kendall Wallace, Alahondra Perez and transfer Jaelyn McCormack-Marks.


Five all-2A SPSL players return - and team welcomes ninth grader Maggee Schmitz to run point while standout forward Vivian Kingston (knee) works her way back.


Reigning two-time state finalists still have skilled group of juniors, led by post player Chessa Holmes and forward Claire Bishop - but lost point guard Lily Atkins (knee).


Group of agitators work hard on defense, and have point guard Regan Brewer (knee) to run the show - and get talented sophomore Rhylee Beebe her share of shots.


Even though Spudders graduated five seniors, up-and-coming group, led by the Chatman sisters (Janessa, Jalise) have been waiting its turn to light up 2A GSHL.

First four out: Sehome, Enumclaw, Black Hills, Port Angeles.
