Boys

Classes 5A-4A

1. SCOTLANDVILLE (24-2)

Another week and two more dominating wins for the Hornets.

2. McKINLEY (17-8)

Panthers move up after beating East Ascension and McDonogh 35 on back-to-back days.

3. EAST ASCENSION (22-5), PLAQUEMINE (18-4)

Class 5A EAHS and 4A PHS split games with each other and are both still solid bets.

5. BELAIRE (18-6)

The Class 4A Bengals lost to Plaquemine last week but are still formidable.

ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN:

Walker (19-6), St. Amant (16-11), Denham Springs (13-11)

Classes 3A and below

1. MADISON PREP (23-5), UNIVERSITY (19-3)

Still tough to separate 2A MPA and 3A U-High. These two, along with Scotlandville, are the area’s top teams.

3. PORT ALLEN (15-8)

The Pelicans emerged nicely from the first-round fray in 6-3A.

4. DUNHAM (22-5), CHRISTIAN LIFE (20-3), EPISCOPAL (22-5)

Three solid 8-2A teams that also are hard to separate at this point.

ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN:

Southern Lab (18-8), White Castle (15-9), Doyle (16-11)

Girls

Classes 5A-4A

1. DENHAM SPRINGS (23-2)

This District 4-5A team is on a serious roll right now, but a second game with Zachary on the horizon is notable.

2. ST. MICHAEL (20-8)

All this team does is win, and it’s the 6-4A leader again.

3. ZACHARY (19-9)

The Broncos’ lone 4-5A loss is to Denham Springs.

4. McKINLEY (18-9)

The Panthers have seized control of 5-5A in a big way that’s impressive.

5. WALKER (18-10)

Last year’s 5A runner-up has retooled nicely but trails DSHS and Zachary in 4-5A.

ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN: Livonia (12-11), Scotlandville (14-12), St. Joseph’s Academy (9-12)

Classes 3A and below

1. UNIVERSITY (19-7)

The Cubs keep moving steadily toward another district title in 6-3A.

2. PARKVIEW BAPTIST (17-10)

Five solid wins since losing to U-High in 6-3A puts the Eagles in this spot.

3. SOUTHERN LAB (21-4), MADISON PREP (23-4)

Both 2A MPA and 1A SLHS lost games last week. Let’s see how they respond.

5. EPISCOPAL (18-8), ALBANY (20-7)

The Knights are on the rise and are unbeaten in the area’s other 2A district. A loss to unbeaten Sumner is the only blemish on AHS’ 9-3A district mark.

ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN:

Holden (20-6), Dunham (19-9), Donaldsonville (16-7)
