The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Traditional powers continued their traditional annual accomplishments, for the most part, at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner Saturday.

In Division I, top-seeded Mount Carmel Academy continued its dynasty as the Cubs won their sixth straight state championship, defeating district rival and No. 3 Dominican in straight sets by 25-19, 25-20, 25-17 margin.

It was the rubber match for the two combatants after the two split a pair of regular season matchups.

Cicily Hidalgo led the way for the Rebel s (44-6) with 15 kills while Emma Cother finished with 36 assists. Kennedy George topped the Falcons (41-7) with 13 kills, 11 digs and two blocks.

Rachel Hartmann led the Jaguars (36-7) with 28 kills while Ansley Tullis added 18 kills. The win avenged a regular season loss to the Knights (34-5).
