The preseason girls basketball rankings are out and the Washington Demons are ranked in the top 10. In Class 3A, the Demons are 9th, Sioux City Bishop Heelan is number one, Waukon two, Central Clinton Dewitt third and Assumption fourth. The Demons were suppose to open their season tonight on the road against Williamsburg who is ranked 13th. However, with the Raiders making it to the volleyball state tournament the game was moved to December 10th. Demon Head Coach Phil Long says being ninth in the state will mean teams will be gunning for them and they’ll have to prepare even harder. He says of course it’s preseason ranking and it doesn’t mean much but the ranking could benefit the Demons if they can go undefeated the fist part of the season and have a ranking when the pairings come out. The Demons will open their season a week from tonight at Ottumwa.
