Several Mercer Island teams and athletes have continued to hold rankings in the state. Here’s a look at where they stand.

The boys basketball team continues to be ranked No. 2 in the state by the Score Czar as of Jan. 15, a ranking they’ve maintained for much of the year. Rainier Beach maintains a slight lead in the 3A category.

Bellevue is the only other KingCo team ranked in the top 10 and is the No. 10 team.

The Mercer Island girl’s team has been ranked No. 23 overall by the Score Czar. Other KingCo teams in the ranking include Bellevue at No. 7 and Juanita at No. 15.

In wrestling, though the team is not ranked, several individuals are by Washington Wrestling Report.

Sophomore Taylan Yuasa is ranked No. 10 in the 106 weight class and Luke Wilson is ranked No. 4 in the 120 division. Nick Chandler earned a No. 6 ranking in the 170 weight class.

As the regular season begins to wrap up in the next couple of weeks, watch for posts about the post season layout and brackets as they become available.
