Allstate Sugar Bowl/LHSAA Prep Classic Recap – Classes 1A-5A

The Logansport Tigers won their second ever state title 34-28 over Haynesville. QB Dalton Shaw threw a 14-yard TD pass to Joe Caraway with only 24 seconds left to stun the Golden Tornado after a furious 4th quarter rally. The Tigers outscored the defending state champs 28-0 in the final frame after trailing 28-6. Head Coach Kevin Magee completed a stunning turnaround at his alma mater after taking over a 2-9 team just three years ago. Magee led Logansport to their only other state championship as the starting QB in 1995. Not to be outdone in dramatics, Sterlington took down the undefeated Chargers of Madison Prep with a late goal line stand. Down 28-21, Madison Prep’s Tyrese Walker scampered in…

LHSAA State Championship Season Off To A Rousing Start

The end of November is always a time set asides to give thanks. However, mid-November is a time set aside for several LHSAA member-schools to give thanks on the court, track and in the pool. State championship season in Louisiana begins every year with a ten-day marathon in three cities spanning across the state. The Allstate Sugar Bowl/LHSAA Volleyball State Tournament, which took place at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner, is consistently one of the most exciting events on the LHSAA calendar. Forty teams took over the lakefront from November 10-12 to play quarterfinals, semifinals and finals. Ultimately, dynasties reigned supreme as Pope John Paul II (Division IV), Teurlings Catholic (Division III), St. Thomas More (Division II) and Mount Carmel…

Digging Into the Volleyball Power Rankings (10/25)

As the power rankings have solidified at the top, intrigue picks up a little ways down the seeding lines. Traditional powers mixed with new blood provide the potential for seriously captivating drama. It's time to see who is ready for the spotlight.   Ranking School From Last Week Record #1 Mt.

Digging Into the Volleyball Power Rankings (10/18)

Last week four of the five divisions had the same flag flying at the top of the mountain as the previous week. This week, only four teams across all five divisions catapulted over the wall dividing the top four from each division from the rest. The later we move into the LHSAA Volleyball season, the harder it becomes to gain ground on teams with spectacular résumés of their own. The chances to impress at this are few and far between. At some point, teams are who they are.   Ranking School From Last Week Record #1 St. Joseph’s Academy --- 26-6 #2 Mt. Carmel --- 25-9 #3 St. Amant Up 4 25-8 #4 Mandeville --- 21-7 #5 Slidell Down 2…

Digging Into the Volleyball Power Rankings (10/11)

It’s difficult to climb to the top of the mountain. It took Sir Edmund Hillary and his crew approximately two months to scale Mt. Everest in 1953. Upon reaching the summit on May 29, 1953 Hillary spent only 15 minutes at the top of the world. At least a state championship buys you 365 days at the top of your Division. The evolution of this year’s playoff seedings are starting to take shape from the top down. Four of the five Divisions look exactly as they did last week at the top. Division V was the lone exception, but the top 4 squads have all been trading places for weeks now.   Ranking School From Last Week Record #1 St.…

Digging Into the Volleyball Power Rankings (10/4)

“The more things change, the more they stay the same.” – Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr I don’t think the 19th-century French novelist was talking about high school volleyball, but I could be wrong. The statement sure sounds appropriate considering this week’s power rankings. Last week we saw serious movement all around the top 10 in each division. 14 different teams rose or fell in the power rankings by at least 3 spots. This week, that number is only four and no more than one in a division. As the calendar moves to October we haven't been introduced to many new faces among the LHSAA volleyball elite, but we have seen shuffling from within.   Ranking School From Last Week Record #1…
