Three Marshall County basketball teams finished the season among the states best, according to polls released last week by The Clarion-Ledger.
The Holly Springs High School, number one in the Super 10 much of the season, ended up seventh thanks to their 24-22 loss to Yazoo County in the Class 3A state championship game.
Ranked ahead of Holly High in the Super 10 are first, Lanier; second, Coahoma County; third, Madison Central; fourth, Provine; fifth, Indianola Gentry; and sixth, Yazoo County. Rounding out the Super 10 are Ripley (eighth), Moss Point (ninth) and Grenada (10th).

On the girls side of the public school rankings, the Byhalia Lady Indians (28-7) end the year fourth in Class 3A, according to The Clarion-Ledger poll. Theyre behind number one Southeast Lauderdale, which won the state crown and eliminated Byhalia in the state semi-finals, number two Choctaw Central and number three Hazlehurst.
