The Rocks Island Rocks have twice as much reason to be proud when it comes to prep basketball rankings.

Both the Rock Island boys' and girls' teams moved up in the Top 10s, the boys getting back in among with Class 4A elite by checking in at No. 10 and the girls' moving up a spot in the Class 3A poll, from No. 6 to No. 5.

In the boys' poll, the Rockridge Rockets dropped from No. 4 to No. 7 in Class 2A after suffering a loss to Illini West this past weekend. Kewanee Wethersfield maintained its No. 9 spot in Class 1A.

There were a couple of teams with Q-C ties also receiving votes. Quincy, in the Western Big 6, which leads Rock Island and Galesburg by a game in the conference, was listed in the "also receiving votes" category in 4A. In 2A, Kewanee picked up some interest.

On the girls' side, Annawan remained No. 2 in the Class 1A poll behind Freeport Aquin, but did pick up a first-place vote this week.

In 2A, Sherrard stayed at No. 7, while Riverdale moved up to the Top 10. The Rams were among those receiving votes last week. That's where Kewanee Wethersfield is in Class 1A.
