When District 3 released its first girls' basketball ratings Monday night, two YAIAA schools were No. 1 in their respective classifications. Another was second.

Dover (Class AAAA) and York Catholic (Class AA) were ranked atop each of their fields, while Susquehannock was second to Palmyra in Class AAA. The Warriors were just behind Palmyra, which beat them in last year's district title game at Hershey's Giant Center.

Dover is joined in the first set of 4A rankings by YAIAA teams Dallastown (fifth), Red Lion (eighth) and New Oxford (13th). The Eagles began the week 8-0, and senior point guard Alayah Hall was just one point shy of matching 1985 graduate Lisa Albright's school-record 1,217 career points.

Not far behind Susquehannock in 3A is West York (fourth), York Suburban (12th), Northeastern (16th) and Eastern York (18th).

York Catholic beat Delone Catholic in last year's 2A district final, and they're one and two in this year's first ratings. YAIAA Division IV-rival Biglerville is third, and Hanover is seventh.

The YAIAA has no teams in Class A, but York County's New Hope Academy is rated 10th. The Mighty Ants would have to make the top 12 to qualify for the district tournament.
