Player of the Week

Ashley Burke, Archbishop Hannan girls soccer

In the Hawks' 4-0 win over Cecilia in the regional round of the Division III state playoffs on Feb. 5, the midfielder’s goal gave her the all-time lead in career goals scored in the history of Archbishop Hannan High School girls soccer.

Team of the Week

St. Paul’s Boys Basketball

Boys basketball has struggled in the parish, and only one team is making its case for a  run to the Top 28: Stephen Dale’s Wolves. The Wolves have won 11 of 12 games, with the loss coming to a Madison Prep squad that they don't have to face in the Division I postseason. St. Paul’s continues to pull away in the race for the 6-5A crown.

Keep an Eye On

Ishmael Burdine and Jacob Bernard

Recruiting never stops, and these are the top two local players to watch this season. What sport will Jacob Bernard actually sign to play in college? Does Burdine get the Stanford offer he so very much covets? Bring on the Class of 2019!

They Said It

“(Slidell's Ishmael) Burdine sees action at both corner and safety and could likely play either position at the highest level. He ... without question is one of the best ball-hawking defensive backs in the state for 2019.
