Karr drops from Louisiana Sports Writers Association's Class 4A No. 1 spot after loss to John Curtis; Newman jumps to No. 4 Class 2A
Per The New Orleans Advocate
A week after powers John Curtis and Edna Karr, who topped Class 5A and 4A in the preseason Louisiana Sports Writers Association preseason polls, faced off in an epic season kickoff, the Cougars' three-point loss pushed them off their No. 1 ranking perch.
Karr, who received eight of the nine first-place votes entering Week 1, still picked up more top nods from the LSWA's voters (five) than new top seed St. Thomas More (four), but the defending Division II champs edged the Cougars in total points from the voting system, 113-102, when the polls following Week 1's games were released. Also in Class 4A, Warren Easton dropped from No. 6 to No. 7, despite a 36-28 win Thursday night over De La Salle, after Evangel's 63-0 shutout of Magnolia School of Excellence earned them a two-spot bump.
In Class 3A, Hannan's 43-42 overtime loss to Chalmette proved costly, with the Hawks dropping from No. 6 to No. 8. Similarly, De La Salle fell from No. 8 to tied for ninth after Easton's come-from-behind victory against the Cavaliers.
