The Butler High School girls basketball team took the No. 1 spot in The Courier-Journal’s Litkenhous Ratings released Thursday.

The Bearettes are 15-1 and have won 15 straight games since a season-opening loss to No. 2 Male. Butler will return to action at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at No. 8 Mercy.

Butler and Male are followed in the Litratings by Simon Kenton, Manual and Sacred Heart.

Mercer County was No. 1 in last week’s Litratings but dropped to No. 6 following an 80-55 loss at Butler on Saturday.

The Litratings are a computerized ranking of every team in the state based on strength of schedule, margin of victory and other factors. Games against out-of-state opponents are not factored.

Here are the complete ratings:
