LGR Power rankings - week 1



With week 1 officially in the books and maybe some cold weather on the way it looks like basketball is finally here! While this year will be nearly impossible to know which teams are at full strength due to Covid we are still going to update our weekly power rankings to keep the conversation going about OUR girls. Not to much movement this week but a quick look ahead to next week and all the heavy weight battles over the Thanksgiving break should bring a lot of good basketball! Check out each classification rankings below.

Class 5A

5A got off to a good start with a great tournament in northern Louisiana at Bossier high school. Several of the top teams from across the the state participated and it told us a lot about this years teams and which teams were already in midseason form!


Not a ton of movement in 5A just a few teams swapping places but we're going to bump MCA up with a win over Mandeville this week. As well as bump Benton up with a win over Easton despite taking a loss to a really good Hicks team. Captain Shreve will fall just one spot despite a 2-2 record they were missing several players due to Covid.


1) Ponchatoula - (1-0)

2) Captain Shreve - (2-2)

3) Mt. Carmel - (2-0)

Class 2A


Not many games played in 2A yet with the top 10 teams only playing 15 games combined so their won't be much movement but it's hard to knock Lake Arthur's hot start to a 3-0 record so they'll take over the number 1 spot this week!
