Holy Cross proved its mettle and that it belonged among the top teams in Class 5A with a monumental victory Saturday night. The thrilling 42-41 win over John Curtis Christian on the last play of the game with a 2-point conversion gave the Tigers their first-ever win over the Patriots.

The Patriots are still a real threat to win another state championship and fell to sixth with the loss.

Archbishop Shaw moves up to eighth with Cecilia in at No. 9 and unbeaten St. Michael entering the rankings at No. 10.

Union Parish moves up to sixth with Parkview Baptist seventh. Madison Prep checks in at No. 8. John F. Kennedy is back in at No. 9 with unbeaten Bunkie tenth.

Two-time defending Select Division III state champion St. Charles Catholic is tops in 2A with Calvary Baptist a close second after another impressive win, this time over Westgate.
