10. Bishop Noll (16-4, 6-1) Last Week – NR
Bishop Noll re-enters the RSN Top Ten in the #10 slot after a hard fought, come from behind win over Catholic arch-rival Andrean. The Warriors have all the tools necessary for a long tournament run, so hopefully they have learned they have to bring their “A” game every night. Sectional #33 is no cake walk and Noll opens with Lake Station on Friday, a team that already took the Warriors into overtime this season.
9. La Porte (13-7, 8-6) Last Week – NR
La Porte played through a lot of tough luck early in the season, losing some close ballgames but after a strong finish, reappear in the RSN Top Ten in the #9 slot after a prolonged absence. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and the Slicers appear to be a mentally tougher team heading into the post season which makes them a dangerous club to play. Although sectional #2 in class 4A is still a meat grinder, La Porte could be a dark horse. The Slicers open with Crown Point on Tuesday.
