Central Catholic slips two spots in poll

Staff Report

Central Catholic slipped two spots to No. 4 in the latest Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 1A poll, which was released Monday.

The slip comes after a week in which the Lady Eagles fell to Class 4A’s third-ranked squad, Vandebilt Catholic, 41-36, before responding with a 61-20 rout of Ascension Episcopal Friday.

Monday’s poll was released prior to the Lady Eagles’ huge 57-54 victory against Class 2A’s top-ranked squad, University Lab.

In the latest poll, Central Catholic received 89 points, one behind district foe Vermilion Catholic, who also received one first-place vote.

Hanson Memorial, who the Lady Eagles will face at home Friday, received 10 votes in this week’s poll, nine more than a week ago.

In Class 3A, Patterson and Berwick’s district opponents, Abbeville and North Vermilion, both remained ranked this week.

Abbeville moved up one spot to No. 5 where it is tied with E.D. White with 78 points. Abbeville also received one first-place vote.

On Friday, Abbeville defeated Patterson, 58-17.

Abbeville will face Berwick this Friday.

North Vermilion moved up one spot to No. 7 in this week’s poll and is receiving 58 points.

Last week, North Vermilion defeated Berwick, 43-22.

In Class 4A, Morgan City’s District 8-4A opponents, Vandebilt Catholic and Ellender Memorial, both continue to receive recognition.

Vandebilt Catholic remained ranked No. 3 with 85 points, while Ellender is receiving six votes this week, compared to the 12 it earned a week ago.

Ellender’s lone contest during the last week was a 79-24 victory against Morgan City.
