After a couple years battling and mostly looking up at the Perham boys basketball team in the state rankings, the Pelican Rapids Vikings have returned to the top of the Class 2A poll, according to Minnesota Basketball News and the most recent rankings released December 26.


Pelican Rapids was ranked No. 2 but took over the top spot after Melrose (4-1) lost in overtime to No. 6-2A Litchfield 65-59 last Friday night. Litchfield has since moved up to No. 5. Melrose dropped to No. 6.
