The legacy of success and a winning tradition have firmly established Dominican as a powerhouse to be reckoned with on the court.
Hot on their heels and determined to challenge Dominican’s supremacy is Archbishop Hannan. The voters acknowledged Archbishop Hannan’s strength and potential by awarding them four first-place votes, cementing their position as a strong contender for the top spot. With their eyes set on the championship trophy, Archbishop Hannan is poised to bring their A-game to every match.
The preseason rankings also shed light on the other teams that are set to make waves this season. Parkview Baptist claimed the No. 3 spot, signaling their intent to rise through the ranks and make their mark. Mt. Carmel and Dutchtown followed closely, securing the No. 4 and No. 5 positions, respectively. These top-five teams are primed to engage in intense battles on the court as they aim to etch their names into the annals of LHSAA volleyball history.
