The final Alabama Sports Writers Association high school basketball rankings of the 2020-21 season are out, and there are some changes for local teams' rankings as they begin postseason play next week.

One constant, however, is the Skyline varsity girls basketball team. The Vikings (22-7) went wire-to-wire as the No. 1-ranked team in Class 1A girls rankings. 

Meanwhile, the North Sand Mountain (21-5) varsity boys moved up to second in the Class 2A rankings, their highest ranking of the season.

Also, Pisgah (17-6) slid back to second  in the 2A girls poll after being ranked No. 1 all season. The Eagles were replaced by Spring Garden (26-2), which had been ranked No. 2 all season. Before moving to Class 2A this season, Pisgah won three straight Class 3A state championships while Spring Garden won the 2018 and 2020 Class 1A state titles.

Five Jackson County teams in all are ranked in the final ASWA polls while two more earned consideration.
