Monday’s Texas Association of Basketball Coaches girls polls showed little movement from last week involving East Texas teams.

Tatum — District 17-2A champions after Friday’s win over White Oak — moved up two spots to No. 18 in this week’s Class 2A poll, which included sixth-ranked Crockett (no movement) and No. 20 Winnsboro, which moved up one spot. Alba-Golden fell out of this week’s rankings.

The other 12 East Texas teams kept the same rankings they had a week ago.

Lindale was No. 18 in Class 4A. Pittsburg and Liberty-Eylau kept their No. 13 and No. 16 spots, respectively, entering Tuesday’s District 13-3A finale in Texarkana. Pittsburg won the first meeting 56-46. Mineola remained at No. 22.

In Class A Division I, East Texas once again retained the top two spots thanks to No. 1 Martin’s Mill and No. 2 Martinsville, which is still undefeated. Slocum kept the No. 8 spot and Zavalla remained No. 13.

Saltillo remained No. 1 in Class A Division II, followed by No. 14 Chireno and No. 15 Kennard.

Tyler T.K. Gorman kept the No. 2 ranking among large private schools.
