Updated power rankings
The Louisiana High School Athletic Association updated its power rankings Sunday, although the organization said “official” rankings would be released today as well as the brackets for the state’s five divisions of volleyball.
However, the rankings released Sunday include records for teams through action Saturday, the last official day of the regular season.
While Central Catholic already has clinched an automatic playoff berth by winning its district championship, the Lady Eagles appear in line for a first-round bye if Sunday’s rankings hold true.
However, due to a five-game losing streak to close the season against top competition from higher classifications, the Lady Eagles have fallen in the rankings one spot to No. 4 from a week ago.
The top eight teams in each division receive a bye, while 24 teams in each division are selected for the postseason. The district champions and runner-ups of each district receive automatic berths, while the remaining slots are filled by wildcards, according to power rankings.
In Division 3, Berwick currently is No. 11, while Morgan City is No. 16 and Patterson is No. 25. Both Berwick and Morgan City remained the same as last week, while Patterson moved up one spot.
