Central Catholic moved up one spot to No. 3 in the latest Louisiana Sports Writers’ Association Class 1A prep poll released Monday.

The Lady Eagles made the move following a 3-0 week that included a 57-54 victory against Class 2A’s top-ranked squad, University Lab; a 51-31 win against Gueydan and a 38-26 victory against Hanson Memorial, who was receiving votes in last week’s poll.

The Lady Eagles (20-7 entering Monday night’s contest against Vermilion Catholic) received 108 points.

Vermilion Catholic slipped two spots from a week ago.

Hanson Memorial, who received votes in last week’s poll, received eight votes this week.

In Class 3A, Patterson and Berwick’s district foes, Abbeville and North Vermilion, both slipped in the latest rankings.

North Vermilion, which dropped its lone contest a week ago, fell two spots to No. 9.

In Class 4A, Vandebilt Catholic now is tied for the third-ranked spot in Class 4A after St. Thomas More garnered enough support to force a tie. Both teams had 98 votes.
